Hugo, Nebula and Campbell Award winner, Barry Longyear is author of the acclaimed Enemy Mine, which was made into a motion picture by Fox. Recent works include The Enemy Papers and Yesterday's Tomorrow. Having completed training as a PI, the current work is a mystery titled The Hangman's Son. Longyear lives with his wife Jean in New Sharon, Maine.From Library Journal:
When Korvas the merchant's "flying carpet" business comes to an abrupt standstill, an unexpected gift falls into his lap: a many-drawered box that has the power to provide for a person's needs--regardless of his wants. Pursued by the relentless Captain Shadows across a land filled with nomads, mystics, and magical creatures, Korvas follows his "god-box" through perils and dangers to fulfill a prophecy in which he only half believes. Longyear's compulsively readable fantasy-fable belongs in most fantasy collections.-- JC
