Tales from Tethedril
edited by Scott Siegel
Del Rey (paperback, 294 pages, $6.99 US/$8.99 Can)
Publication date: August, 1998 (First Printing: )

Something of a curiosity, even among themed collections. It's not unusual for a shared world anthology to build on a trilogy or even single novel of a famous writer... but here Siegel has assembled an original anthology to expand on "God's Law," a single previously unpublished short story from fantasy author R. A. Salvatore, author of The Demon Awakens and The Demon Spirit Contributors helping to explore this new fantasy world include Elaine Cunningham, Christie Golden, Ed Greenwood, Mary H. Herbert, Mary Kirchoff, Douglas Niles, Nick O'Donohoe, and Dan Parkinson."

Beast of the Heartland
Lucius Shepard
Four Walls Eight Windows (paperback, 292 pages, $10.95 US)
Publication date: March 29, 1999

Published as Barnacle Bill the Spacer in the UK, this collection includes that Hugo Award winning tale and six others. From the author of Life During Wartime. "The fiction of Lucius Shepard has more to do with Joseph Conrad than Isaac Asimov. Fascinated by deception and decay, and generally labeled a cyberpunk writer, his work transcends the limits of genre fiction. Beast of the Heartland contains seven tales that explore the darkside where science fiction meets horror. Headed by the award-winning "Barnacle Bill the Spacer," a story of high-space mutiny, the book includes "A Little Night Music," a gothic tale of insanity; "All the Perfumes of Araby," where an adventurer in the Middle East links up with an ancient entity; "Human History," a post-apocalyptic chiller; "Sports in America," a noir tale in the Chandler tradition; "The Sun Spider," a mini space opera; and the title story -- an ingenious picture of a battered boxer on the decline."

Will Shetterly
Tor (reprint, trade paperback, 445 pages, $15.95 US/$21.95 Canada)
Publication date: August 1998

Will Shetterly is the author of the Borderlands novels Elsewhere and Nevernever. He also wrote Cats Have No Lord and co-created the popular Liavek anthology series, among his other accomplishments. But you'd never know that from this carefully crafted mainstream lookalike. Tor has packaged the trade paperback release of this thoughtful fantasy novel as a work of American magic realism and culture clash -- even going so far as to place a rather amusing Knopf-like hound on the spine. Whether it will work or not, allowing the under-appreciated Shetterly to reach a more mainstream (and presumably wider) audience, is anyone's guess. But you should certainly not let this book get away simply because it's been mistakenly filed next to William Faulkner at your local bookshop. Set in Florida in 1959, it introduces the Nix family who manage to outrage the locals with their Dogland tourist attraction, a place where all dog breeds can live side by side -- as well as their outspoken beliefs on integration. Told in hindsight by the four-year old Chris Nix, it a look at a dark period of US history... and a place where the quest for tolerance, magic, and the Fountain of Youth could come together.
