Five Autobiographies and a Fiction by Lucius Shepard

Lucius Shepard is his usual excellent self in Five Autobiographies and a Fiction, his newest collection, copies of which have just been sent on to customers. Want proof? Check out this cutting from the Publishers Weekly review:

Nebula winner Shepard (Life During Wartime) often steers his fiction toward faraway shores, but the bulk of this collection directly targets the American heartland. A painfully confessional introduction sets the stage for five ‘autobiographies’—might-have-been stories exploring facets of the author’s personal journey… This honestly titled collection deals well and satisfyingly with deep truths.

You can read two stories from the book online: "The Flock" is posted to the book's description page, while the outstanding novella, "Vacancy", originally appeared in our online magazine.

Diary of a Dragon by Tad Williams

We go from the heft of Lucius' newest collection, to the short and clever excursion into fantasy by Tad Williams. All copies of Diary of a Dragon are en route to customers. If the print edition isn't your thing, please consider the ebook. Diary is a wonderfully funny tale, very heavily illustrated by William Eaken, printed in two colors throughout.
