by Michael Swanwick
The master of literary science fiction returns with this dazzling new collection. Michael Swanwick takes us on a whirlwind journey across the globe and across time and space, where magic and science exist in possibilities that are not of this world. Travel from Norway to Russia, and America to ancient Gehenna. Discover a calculus problem that rocks the ages and robots who both nurture and kill. Meet a magical horse who protects the innocent, a semi-repentant troll, a savvy teenager who takes on the Devil, and time travelers from the Mesozoic who party till the end of time. These are tales intimate in their telling, galactic in their scope, and deliciously sesquipedalian in their verbiage.
Prasie for Michael Swanwick

“One of the most powerful and consistently inventive short story writers of his generation.”
—Gardner Dozois, editor of the Year’s Best Science Fiction series

—Jack McDevitt, author of The Engines of God
“Swanwick’s prose takes no prisoners.”
