9781597800488: The Chains That You Refuse

A new collection by one of the most popular and prolific authors of the last few years covers a wide range of material, from time travel to cyberpunk to contemporary fantasy. Twenty stories and two poems, originally published in high profile places like SciFi.com and Asimov's.

Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality books from a diverse group of authors.

About the Author:

No Bio

From Booklist:

The title story of Bear's collection is a tiny piece on the uselessness of knowing the future. Its volume mates leap from one trope to another, all over the genre map. Without exception, they are bright moments of storytelling, whether they concern mysterious creatures a la Lovecraft, time travel, political intrigue, epic battles, or the queen of the Seelie Fay. In "This Tragic Glass," Kit Marlowe's data throw off research on Renaissance poets at the University of Nevada, and the scholars arrange to bring him to their time (they've already got Keats) to reveal his greatest secret. Bear is as comfortable reimagining great literary figures--in "L'esprit d'escalier--Not a Play in One Act," besides Marlowe and Keats, she brings in Ginsberg, Shakespeare, Shelley, even Brautigan--as extrapolating physicists: "Schrodinger's Cat Chases the Super String" includes a conversation among Bohr, Schrodinger, Einstein, Heisenberg, and the Curies. An extraordinary gathering of stories that showcases Bear's chops most effectively. Regina Schroeder
