About this title

Synopsis:

What if you had a holocaust and nobody came?

Imagine a father who has sent his child's soul voyaging and seen it go astray. Or a backyard tale from the 1001 American Nights. Macbeth re-imagined as a screwball comedy. Three extraordinary economic tasks performed by a small expert in currency exchange that risk first career and then life and then soul.

From the disturbing beauty of 'Flat Diane' (Nebula-nominee, International Horror Guild award-winner) to the idiosyncratic vision of 'The Cambist and Lord Iron' (Hugo- and World Fantasy-nominee), Daniel Abraham has been writing some of the most enjoyable and widely admired short fiction in the genre for over a decade.

Ranging from high fantasy to hard science fiction, screwball comedy to gut-punching tragedy, Daniel Abraham's stories never fail to be intelligent, compassionate, thoughtful, and humane. Leviathan Wept and Other Stories is the first collection of his short works, including selections from both the well-known and the rare.

From Publishers Weekly:

Hugo and Nebula finalist Abraham's first collection of nine stories showcases his work in an admirably wide range of genres, but the range of quality is likewise considerable. Flat Diane, an eerie tale about a young girl who sees through the eyes of a cardboard cutout mistreated by her relatives, addresses the horror cliché of child abuse in new and meaningful ways. The Curandero and the Swede: A Tale from the 1001 American Nights weaves history, humor, folklore, and vivid characterizations together with a deftness that would leave Scheherazade gasping with admiration. By contrast, A Hunter in Arin-Qin generates neither a sense of reality nor mythic resonance. Abraham (the Long Price Quartet) has undeniable skill, and readers will wish only for more of it to be on display here. (June)
