Not since William Gibson and Bruce Sterling galvanized science fiction in the 1980s has the emergence of a new writer been heralded with such acclaim as that attending David Marusek, whose brilliant first novel, Counting Heads, appeared to rave reviews in 2005. But Marusek did not come out of nowhere. Aficionados of the genre had already taken note of his groundbreaking short fiction: masterfully written, profoundly thought-out examinations of futures so real they seemed virtually inevitable. Now, in this collection of ten short stories, Marusek’s fierce imagination and dazzling extrapolative gifts are on full display. Five of the stories, including the Sturgeon Award-winning “The Wedding Album,” a shattering look at the unintended human consequences of advanced technology, are set in the same future as Counting Heads. All ten showcase Marusek’s talent for literate, provocative science fiction of the very highest order. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Julia Whittaker’s rocky past yielded two daughters, both given up for adoption as infants. Now she must find them to try to save her son. Julia and Matt Whittaker’s son has beaten the odds for thirteen years only to have the odds—and his liver—crash precipitously. The only hope for his survival is a “living liver” transplant, but the transplant list is long and Dillon’s time is short. His two older half-sisters, born eighteen months apart to two different fathers, offer his only hope for survival. But can Julia ask a young woman—someone she surrendered to strangers long ago and has never spoken with—to make such a sacrifice to save a brother she’s never known? Can she muster the courage to journey back into a shame-filled season of her life, face her choices and their consequences, and find any hope of healing? And what if she discovers in her own daughters’ lives that a history of foolish choices threatens to repeat itself? Julia knows she’s probably embarking on a fool’s errand—searching for the daughters she abandoned only now that she needs something from them. But love compels Julia to take this journey. Can grace and forgiveness compel her daughters to join her? In To Know You, Shannon Ethridge and Kathryn Mackel explore how the past creates the present . . . and how even the most shattered lives can be redeemed.

[from Will your holy hill ] In his poems, Allyn Benedict expresses so much of his inner journey' most subtly and beautifully. His writing about weighty topics is enticingly suggestive; never statemental, sentimental, or ponderous. Allyn makes his readers think for themselves, enjoy themselves and grow themselves...and there's music in his onomatopoetic lines it all spells warmth and joy and love.

A teenager discovers his voice in this contemporary love story from “one of young adult literature’s greatest living writers” (Booklist). Shy teenager Karl is desperately in love with his girlfriend, Fiorella, a literary enthusiast who’s asked him to write her a letter in which he reveals his true self. There’s just one problem . . . Karl is dyslexic. Convinced that his attempts to express himself with words will end in disaster, Karl tracks down Fiorella’s favorite novelist and begs him to take up the task. The famous writer unexpectedly agrees, but on one condition: Karl must participate in a series of interviews so the author can pen an authentic portrait of his affections. What follows is a series of misunderstandings, a startling revelation, and an unusual bond that will change all three of their lives. A moving story of love and friendship, Dying to Know You is the perfect novel for “that cloudy expanse between older teenager and younger adult, a novel that doesn’t pretend to advise, but merely sees its characters for who they really are” (The Guardian). “This quietly understated performance captures the wistfulness of music in a minor key.” —Kirkus Reviews
