Synopsis: The Pure Product brings together for the first time in one volume Kessel's finest short fiction from the past decade. This exceptional collection contains nineteen astonishing voyages into worlds of wonder and mystery, complete with omnipotent beings, time travel, alternate histories, and playful takes on popular literature. The collection also includes three companion pieces to his most recent novel, Corrupting Dr. Nice. Here are the meditations of an exceptional writer who understands that darkness and tragedy can turn in one breathless heartbeat to moments of absurdity, epiphany, passion, or joy.

Product Description: As one of the most highly acclaimed sci-fi writers of the past 15 years, John Kessel's mordant wit and warm insight into the human condition comes to full flower in his short fiction. "The Pure Product" presents a collection of 16 of his short stories, two poems and an award-winning play.
