Dust jacket has some scuffing on the front upper right corner, book has remainder mark on the bottom, dust jacket and book have bumped corners, light discoloration and shelf wear.

Satisfaction Guaranteed. The best stories pull readers in and keep them turning the pages, eager to discover more - to find the answer to the question: "And then what happened?" The true hallmark of great literature is great imagination, and as Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio prove with this outstanding collection, when it comes to great fiction, all genres are equal. Stories is a groundbreaking anthology that reinvigorates, expands, and redefines the limits of imaginative fiction and affords some of the best writers in the world - from Peter Straub and Chuck Palahniuk to Roddy Doyle and Diana Wynne Jones, Stewart O'Nan and Joyce Carol Oates to Walter Mosley and Jodi Picoult - the opportunity to work together, defend their craft, and realign misconceptions. Gaiman, a literary magician whose acclaimed work defies easy categorization and transcends all boundaries, and "master anthologist" (Booklist) Sarrantonio personally invited, read, and selected all the stories in this collection, and their standard for this "new literature of the imagination" is high. "We wanted to read stories that used a lightning-flash of magic as a way of showing us something we have already seen a thousand times as if we have never seen it at all." Joe Hill boldly aligns theme and form in his disturbing tale of a man's descent into evil in "Devil on the Staircase." In "Catch and Release," Lawrence Block tells of a seasoned fisherman with a talent for catching a bite of another sort. Carolyn Parkhurst adds a dark twist to sibling rivalry in "Unwell." Joanne Harris weaves a tale of ancient gods in modern New York in "Wildfire in Manhattan." Vengeance is the heart of Richard Adams's "The Knife." Jeffery Deaver introduces a dedicated psychologist whose mission in life is to save people in "The Therapist." A chilling punishment befitting an unspeakable crime is at the dark heart of Neil Gaiman's novelette "The Truth Is a Cave in the Black Mountains." As it transforms your view of the world, this brilliant and visionary volume - sure to become a classic - will ignite a new appreciation for the limitless realm of exceptional fiction. .

Monstrous Affections: An Anthology of Beastly Tales

By Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant (Edited by)

Somerville, Massachusetts: Candlewick Press, 2014. BV2 - A first edition (stated with complete numberline) hardcover book in very good condition that has some bumped corners, some scattered stains on the page edges, some light discoloration and shelf wear with no dust jacket. Stories by M.T. Anderson, Pablo Bacigalupi, Nathan Ballingrud, Holly Balck, Sarah Rees Brennan, Cassandra Clare, Nalo Hopkinson, Dylan Horrocks, Nik Houser, Kathleen Jennings, Alice Sola Kim, Joshua Lewis, Kelly Link, Patrick Ness, and G. Carl Purcell. 9.25"x7", 467 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed. Predatory kraken that sing with - and for - their kin; band members and betrayed friends who happen to be demonic; harpies as likely to attract as repel. Welcome to a world where humans live side by side with monsters, from vampires both nostalgic and bumbling to an eight-legged alien who makes tea. Here you'll find mercurial forms that burrow into warm fat, spectral boy toys, a Maori force of nature, a landform that claims lives, and an architect of hell on earth. Through these and a few monsters that defy categorization, some of today's top young-adult authors explore ambition and sacrifice, loneliness and rage, love requited and avenged, and the boundless potential for connection, even across extreme borders. As in their acclaimed and award-winning anthology Steampunk! Kelly Link and Gavin J. Grant have brought together fifteen of the premier voices in speculative fiction to explore the intersection of fear and love - where the monsters within meet, and sometimes blur into, the monsters without - in a haunting, at times hilarious, darkly imaginative volume.. First Edition. Hard Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

From zombie-infested woods in a postapocalyptic America to faery-haunted rural fields in eighteenth- century England, from the kingdoms of high fantasy to the alien world of a galaxy-spanning empire, these are stories of lovers who must struggle against the forces of magic and fate. Award-winning, bestselling author Neil Gaiman demonstrates why he's one of the hottest stars in literature today with "The Thing About Cassandra," a subtle but chilling story of a man who meets an old girlfriend he had never expected to see. International blockbuster bestselling author Diana Gabaldon sends a World War II RAF pilot through a stone circle to the time of her Outlander series in "A Leaf on the Winds of All Hallows." Torn from all he knows, Jerry MacKenzie determinedly survives hardship and danger, intent on his goal of returning home to his wife and baby - no matter the cost.

Just the smallest sampling promises unearthly delights, but look also for stories by New York Times bestselling romance authors Jo Beverley and Mary Jo Putney, and by such legends of the fantasy genre as Peter S. Beagle and Tanith Lee, as well as many other popular and beloved writers, including Marjorie M. Liu, Jacqueline Carey, Carrie Vaughn, and Robin Hobb. This exquisite anthology, crafted by the peerless editing team of George R. R. Martin and Gardner Dozois, is sure to leave you under its spell.. First Edition. Hard Cover.

A Study in Sherlock: Stories Inspired by the Holmes Canon

By Laurie R. King and Leslie S. Klinger (Edited by)

Scottsdale, Arizona: Poisoned Pen Press, 2011. AN0 - A first edition (stated with complete numberline) hardcover book SIGNED by Laurie R. King, Leslie S. Klinger, Laura Lippman, Thomas Perry, S.J.

Dust jacket has some wrinkling and crease on the edges, dust jacket and book have some bumped corners, light discoloration and shelf wear. What would happen if you asked eighteen top writers who don't normally write about Sherlock Holmes, to write about Sherlock Holmes? What if you wrote to them, saying: In 19th century England, a new kind of hero - a consulting detective - blossomed in the mind of an underemployed doctor and ignited the world's imagination. In the thirteen decades since A Study in Scarlet first appeared, countless variations on that theme have been played, from Mary Russell to Greg House, from 'Basil of Baker Street' to the new BBC Holmes-in-the-Internet-age. We suspect that you have in the back of your mind a story that plays a variation on the Holmes theme.... And what if these great writers read that proposal and decided that yes, they did have that kind of tale in the back of their minds? The result is A Study in Sherlock, Stories Inspired by the Sherlock Holmes Canon, with stories by Alan Bradley, Tony Broadbent, Jan Burke, Lionel Chetwynd, Lee Child, Colin Cotterill, Neil Gaiman, Laura Lippman, Gayle Lynds and John Sheldon, Phillip Margolin and Jerry Margolin, Margaret Maron, Thomas Perry, S.J. Rozan, Dana Stabenow, Charles Todd, and Jacqueline Winspear. 8.75"x5.75", 336 pages. Satisfaction Guaranteed.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover.

Favorite and newcomer writers explore contemporary topics such as cloning, literary envy, cults, and teenage sex, as well as timeless subjects: love, sibling rivalry, immigration, and religion. In Kevin Brockmeier's stunning "The Year of Silence," an unnamed city must face the absence of all sound, followed by an excess of noise. Katie Chase's bold and unsettling story, "Man and Wife," her first one published, brings to life an arranged marriage between a nine-year-old and a grown man. In A.M. Homes's "May We Be Forgiven," two brothers' rivalry undoes their marriages and eventually their lives. Nicole Krauss writes of an inherited desk that comes to represent the burden of memory for a poet in her beautiful story, "From the Desk of Daniel Varsky." And Stephen Millhauser's ingenious "The Wizard of West Orange" imagines Edison and his colleagues inventing machines dedicated to the sense of touch. In his introduction, Salman Rushdie writes, "Some of these stories are immense, the so-called 'grand narratives' of nation, race, and faith, and others are small: family stories, and stories of elective affinities, of the friends we choose, the places we know, and the people we love; but we all live in and with and by stories, every day, whoever and wherever we are." The cultural relevance and intellectual potential of the short story are on display in this year s volume of the best-selling collection.. Signed by Author. First Edition. Hard Cover.
