All-new tales

Publisher: Headline Review

This is a short story collection not short on ideas. It’s one huge book of great, exciting stories which will become a uniting force for readers of all forms of imaginative fiction.

Rather than being dictated by genre, for co-editors Gaiman and Sarrantonio there is only one true distinction in fiction: the one dividing realistic and imaginative fiction. Stories is a collection of the very best original fiction from some of the most imaginative writers in the world, as well as a showcase for some of fiction's newer stars.

Joe Hill describes a man’s descent into evil in ‘The Devil on the Staircase’; Lawrence Block tells of a seasoned fisherman who has a talent for catching bites of another sort in ‘Catch and Release’; Joanne Harris weaves a tale of ancient gods in modern New York in ‘Wildfire in Manhattan’.

With stories from Roddy Doyle, Chuck Palahniuk, Jodi Picoult and Joyce Carol Oates also offering big idea stories, and a new novelette from Neil Gaiman, this is the most fan and entertaining anthology of short stories out for a while.
