Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

“Pelland handles difficult topics with assured storytelling chops, bringing us to the brink of tears, fear, desire, and beyond. Worth your time AND money AND sincere attention.” —Steven Gould, author of Jumper

Seven short stories, three novelettes, and one novella of dark science fiction from multiple Nebula Award nominee Jennifer Pelland. Author commentary is provided at the conclusion of each tale.

Pain. Pleasure. The sensation of touch.we feel everything through our skin, that delicate membrane separating "I" from "other," protecting the very essence of self.

Until it breaks. Or changes. Or burns.

What would you do if you were the one called on to save humanity, and the price you had to pay was becoming something other than human? Or if healing your body meant losing the only person you've ever loved?

Wander through worlds where a woman craves even a poisonous touch, a man's deformities become a society's fashion, genetic regeneration keeps the fires of Hell away, and painted lovers risk everything to break the boundaries of their caste system down.

Separate your mind from your flesh and come in.


Jennifer Pelland is a short fiction writer whose work has earned multiple Nebula Award nominations ("Captive Girl" and "Ghosts of New York"). "Captive Girl" was also shortlisted for the Gaylactic Spectrum Award. Jennifer lives outside Boston with an Andy, three cats, an impractical amount of books, and an ever-growing collection of belly dance gear and radio theater scripts. Apex Publications will be releasing her first novel (MACHINE) in December, 2011.

“Her already-glowing reputation may still be just a hint of promising light on the horizon of those who like their fantastic fiction smart, imaginative, and driven by the mysteries of the human spirit, but each new story as brilliant as ‘Brushstrokes’ and ‘The Last Stand of the Elephant Man’ brings her inevitable future even closer. Trust me on this: Jennifer Pelland’s star has only just begun to rise.” —Adam-Troy Castro, author of Emissaries From the Dead

“Jennifer Pelland is addicted to writing short stories. She’s written an essay about this addiction but you don’t need to read the essay to know it’s true. Each of the tales in this collection is a testament to her love of story-telling, and her imagination. She has a keen sense of irony, and a gift for juxtaposing images and events in a way which enables her to extract emotion at crucial moments from her characters and from the reader.”

“Jennifer Pelland is a very good writer. She can evoke a setting, an environment, a mood in just a few sentences. And she does it so intensely that the reader really feels the fear of touching any potentially diseased subway riders; feels the thirst of a world without water; feels the aloneness that comes behind the metal mask.”

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not for the feint hearted 2 mai 2014

This was a great little read with a bite challenging body image and social boundaries.
I love the way the author tackles sexuality seemingly able to write from every vantage point.
This is not hard core sci-fi in a traditional sense in my opinion but certainly is true enough to the genre to earn a place in my heart.

Jennifer Pelland is an extremely gifted writer. Her prose, her characters, her setting and the atmosphere she's able to create around each story are only comparable to masters of the genre like H.P. Lovecraft, Poe, King and Barker. She will make you laugh, cry and think and in the process give you nightmares :)

The stories are well written with a lot of surprises. There were some unique plots and characters. Most of the stories had some dark or twisted element. I will look for more by this author.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fascinating collection of stories 25 août 2008

The stories in this book are dark. They also run the range of disturbing, creepy, sweet, stark, touching, and horribly beautiful. Though some stories are stronger than others, really, every one of them is a winner. Fans of dark sci-fi hit the jackpot with this collection.
