Free Live Free
Tor/Orb (reprint, trade paperback, 403 pages, $15.95/$21.95 Can)
Publication date: March 10, 1999 (First Edition: November, 1985)

Reprint of a contemporary fantasy from one of the most acclaimed stylists in the field, author of the classic Book of the New Sun. "Four people in contemporary Chicago are caught up in a search for the lost treasure of Benjamin Free. "Free Live Free," said the newspaper ad, and the out-of-work detective Jim Stubb, the occultist Madame Serpentina, the salesman Ozzie Barnes, and the overweight prostitute Candy Garth are brought together to live for a time in Free's old house, a house scheduled for demolition to make way for a highway. Free drops mysterious hints of his exile from his homeland, and of the lost key to his return. And so when the demolition occurs and Free disappears, the four make a pact to continue the search, which ultimately takes them far beyond their wildest dreams."
Exodus From the Long Sun
Book 4 of the Book of the Long Sun, the epic SF/Fantasy series that began with Nightside the Long Sun. Authors who begin long series like this always make me a little nervous... what if they get hit by a truck at the end of book three? Time to breathe that little sigh of relief. Book of the Long Sun, itself a long sequel to the four-volume Book of the New Sun, is considered by many to be one of the finest science fantasy series in the genre. "Having set the scene with the precision of thought and language that marks his major works, Mr. Wolfe has now put all the pieces in motion, and the effect is dazzling."--The New York Times Book Review.
The Island of Doctor Death and Other Stories and Other Stories
Tor trade paper
Reprint of the classic collection from the two-time winner of the Nebula Award and author of The Book of the New Sun, featuring the now famous "Dr. Death" trilogy of stories: "The Island of Dr. Death and Other Stories," "The Death of Dr. Island," and the "Doctor of Death Island", all unrelated. The first involves a young boy who escapes his weary existence by entering the disturbing adventures of a fantasy book; the second concerns three young sociopaths who are receiving therapy on, and from, a space station known as Dr. Island. And "The Doctor of Death Island" tells the tale of a prisoner awakening from cryogenic sleep who discovers that humans have become virtually immortal -- and a life sentence is still a life sentence. It also features the classic short work "Seven American Nights," "Alien Stones, and "The Hero as Werewolf."
Tor/Orb paperback
Castleview, Illinois, got its name from the rumors of sightings of a mysterious, phantom castle on stormy nights. Otherwise it's a peaceful place, almost tranquil... the kind of place where the barrier between past and present seems oddly thin, and strange things can seep into the here-and-now. And today Arthurian legend is going to collide head-on with Maintown U.S.A., because a very large storm is brewing...
