This comprehensive collection--the first to be translated into English--introduces a distinct and dynamic voice to the Anglophone world. In many ways, Châteaureynaud is France's own Kurt Vonnegut, and his stories are as familiar as they are fantastic. A Life on Paper presents characters who struggle to communicate across the boundaries of the living and the dead, the past and the present, the ... more info>> (Published: 2010)

When the turtle tries to take a bite of her own baby, Pooch snatches the baby and runs. Meanwhile, there's a dangerous wolv... more info>> (Published: 1990)

5 Cloud & Ashes: Three Winter's Tales [MultiFormat]
by Greer Gilman
  "I am wind and memory who spells this ... " In the eighteen years since her Crawford Award-winning debut novel Moonwise, Greer Gilman's writing has only grown more complex and entrancing, more beguiling and inventive. Gilman's second novel, Cloud & Ashes, is a slow whirlwind of language, a button box of words, a mythic Joycean fable that will invite immersion, study, revisitation, and delight. To step into her world is to witness the bright flashes, witty turns, and shadowy corners of the human ... more info>> (Published: 2009) Nebula Award(R) Finalist, World Fantasy Award Winner

7 Endless Things: A Part of AEgypt [MultiFormat]
by John Crowley
  This is the fourth novel--and much-anticipated conclusion--of John Crowley's astonishing and lauded AEgypt sequence: a dense, lyrical meditation on history, alchemy, and memory. Spanning three centuries, and weaving together the stories of Renaissance magician John Dee, philosopher Giordano Bruno, and present-day itinerant historian and writer Pierce Moffett, the AEgypt sequence is as richly significant as Lawrence Durrell's Alexandria Quartet or Anthony Powell's Dance to the Music of Time.
