From the author of Wizardspawn.

Jonathan Hayes has a great life -- a loving wife, two great kids, and dreams that are just starting to come true. All that changes when the police show up at his front door in force, arresting him for the murder of a young woman. Jonathan is innocent. He knows this. His wife, Joan, knows this. But the police don't seem to care. It's as though they have already tried and convicted him -- and when he sees their evidence, he realizes why. Their evidence demonstrates conclusively that he is indeed the murderer. But all their evidence is fake. When he eventually proves this, he returns home, only to find that his troubles have just begun. His wife is murdered in her sculpture studio, and Jonathan is devastated. Heartbroken, he does the only thing left that he can do. He turns to magic in a desperate attempt to find the real killer and avenge his wife.

Larry Segriff lives in Wisconsin.

Review:

"From a darkly humorous tale of the power of words (Death and the Librarian) to a never-before-published response to events of September 11 (Ilion), Friesner's 12 stories illustrate the author's acutely sensitive vision of wonder in the everyday world... Known primarily for his 'Star Wars' novels... Zahn's short stories also deliver strong plots and memorable characters... Zebrowski's many novels (e.g. Macrolife) mark him as a visionary as well as a master of hard sf. The ten short stories collected in In the Distance provide a benchmark of his creativity... the author expands his concept of the human condition to embrace the stars. Part of Five Star's continuing commitment to showcasing the short fiction of the genre's most prominent author's, these three volumes belong in most libraries where short sf is popular."
-- Library Journal (December 2002) (Library Journal 20021201)

"...Part of Five Star's continuing commitment to showcasing the short fiction of the genre's most prominent authors, these three volumes (Death and the Librarian and Other Stories/ Star Song and Other Stories/ In the Distance, and Ahead in Time) belong in most libraries where short sf is popular."
-- Library Journal (December 2002) (Library Journal 20021201)

"Four more titles in Five Star's new series (God Is an Iron and Other Stories/ Generation Gap and Other Stories/ The Lady Vanishes and Other Oddities of Nature/ Suppose They Gave a Peace and Other Stories) of short fiction by noteworthy sf authors offer a variety of tales that illustrate the depth and staying power of the genre...Most of the stories in these volumes have only appeared in periodicals. Libraries wishing to augment their sf or short fiction collections should consider any of them."
-- Library Journal (June 2002) (Library Journal 20020615)

"It's hard to put down..."
--The SF Site (May 2004) (The SF Site 20040501)
