Paradise Tales Synopsis

Geoff Ryman writes about the other and leaves us dissected in the process. His stories are set in recognizable places--London, Cambodia, tomorrow--and feature men and women caught in recognizable situations (or technologies) and not sure which way to turn. They, we, should obviously choose what's right. But what if that's difficult? What will we do? What we should, or ...? Paradise Tales builds on the success of his most recent novel, The King's Last Song, and on the three Cambodian stories included here, The Last Ten Years of the Hero Kai, Blocked, and the exceedingly-popular Pol Pot's Beautiful Daughter. Paradise Tales includes stories selected from the many periods of Ryman's career including Birth Days, Omnisexual, The Film-makers of Mars, and a new story, K is for Kosovo (or, Massimo's Career). To complement this first full-length short story collection, Small Beer Press is reprinting Ryman's backlist: Was, The Child Garden, and a book of four novellas, The Unconquered Countries, with new introductions to continue to build the readership of one of the most fascinating writers exploring the edges of being, gender, science, and fiction. Geoff Ryman is the author of the novels The King's Last Song, The Child Garden, Air (a Clarke and Tiptree Award winner), and The Unconquered Country (a World Fantasy Award winner). Canadian by birth, he has lived in Cambodia and Brazil and now teaches creative writing at the University of Manchester in England.
