Stories by Al Sarrantonio, Neil Gaiman
  

Lovereading view...

A hugely original anthology of imaginative fiction edited by bestselling authors Neil Gaiman and Al Sarrantonio. This is one hell of a huge book of great, exciting stories which will become a uniting force for readers of all forms of imaginative fiction. Rather than being dictated by genre, for co-editors Gaiman and Sarrantonio there is only one true distinction in fiction: the one dividing realistic and imaginative fiction. So, STORIES is a collection of the very best original fiction from some of the most imaginative writers in the world, as well as a showcase for some of fiction's newer stars including Booker Prize winner, Roddy Doyle, the author of Chocolat, Joanne Harris, Richard Adams of Watership Down fame, Jodi Picoult, Jeffery Deaver and Peter Straub to name just a few. It's the perfect opportunity to try new authors through the vehicle of a short story they've written. Brilliant.
