There was only one Karl Edward Wagner. Taken far too soon by the demons within, he left behind a body of work that will stand the test of time. Collected here are the tales that cement his reputation as one of the master storytellers of his generation. With the added bonus of a touching foreword by ...

An incredible collection of Wagner's later works, bearing witness to the pain that would cut short his career and his life. These stories all bear the scars of the battle between his personal demons and his muse, including several which are painfully autobiographical, giving the reader an unflinchin...

I love Connie Willis. However, I continue to be slightly befuddled by her passionate love of musical theater/old movies/retro celebrity... that sort of thing. It's just not my thing.

Liked the concept, but none of the characters really had much development, and I constantly had to pause and remind myself who was who. I suspect I'd like the full-length novels better, or else that reading the other Company Series installments would flesh things out a bit more to my liking.
