About this title


Isham Stone, the world's second-best assassin, goes into the ruins of a city after the greatest killer of all time, Wendall Morgan Carlson. But Carlson is guarded by ghosts--beings from an ancient civilization that shared the Earth with humans for millions of years, and who have now declared war on the human race, all thanks to the man Isham has come to kill.

About the Author:

<b>Spider Robinson</b>, winner of three Hugos and a Nebula, was born in the Bronx and raised on Long Island, and has been a Canadian resident for 30 years. Holder of a bachelor's degree in English from the State University of New York, he worked as a folksinger and journalist before publishing his first story in <i>Analog </i>in 1973. He now lives with his wife Jeanne Robinson (co-author of the Hugo- and Nebula-winning Stardance trilogy) on an island outside Vancouver, B.C., where they raise and exhibit hopes. <br /><br />Eleven of his 31 books are set in Callahan's Place, a fabulous tavern founded by a time traveler, where puns flow as freely as beer, and smell far worse. The most recent is<i> Callahan's Con</i> [Tor July 2003]. He has contributed a regular editorial column, &quot;Future Tense,&quot; to Canada's national newspaper,<i> The Globe &amp; Mail</i>, since 1995. In 2000, he released<i> </i>Belaboring the Obvious<i>, </i>a CD of original music with the legendary Amos Garrett (&quot;Midnight at the Oasis&quot;) on lead guitar, and in 2001 he was a celebrity judge at the Cannabis Cup in Amsterdam. <br />
