Overview

“Great writing, vivid scenarios, and thoughtful commentary…the stories will linger after the last page is turned.”—Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

“Mike Flynn’s stories begin by intriguing your brain and end by piercing your heart. Few other writers can combine cutting-edge science and emotional situations with Flynn’s skill and sensitivity. ”—Nancy Kress, author of the bestselling Beggars in Spain.

Fine literary writing meets Science Fiction. A thematic tour-de-force exploring the concept of being human through the eyes of imperfect protagonists struggling with their demons. More than just great SF, these are great stories told with style, wit and sensitivity. Six memorable stories, each independent, but each tangentially touching on the others.

“Michael Flynn has quietly become one of the best SF writers of our time. Captive Dreams shows his intelligence, his compassion, and the dry wit with which he seasons them both. Don’t miss it!” —New York Times bestselling author Harry Turtledove

“I enjoyed half of these stories years ago on first reading them, and I enjoyed encountering them again, along with their new companions and their creator’s thoughts on their creation. I think I will not be alone in that.”—Locus Magazine

“What makes this volume unique is that one neighborhood is the setting, and all the characters in the stories live in that neighborhood. Flynn has also added afterwords for each story which describe how he came to write each piece, a great way of answering the standard question, ‘Where do you get your ideas?’ ”—ForeWord Reviews
