City fishing is the long out of print short fiction collection by award-winning author Steve Rasnic Tem. This book collects 38 short stories drawn from the deep recesses of a very creative mind.

Nominated for the Bram Stoker Award

Winner, International Horror Guild Award, 2000

"The major collection his work has long deserved." -- The Denver Post

"You're in for a treat!" -- Douglas Clegg

"No critical analysis seems adequate to describe the twisted realities and unexpected terrors summoned by his fiction." -- William P. Simmons, Horrorfind

"City Fishing constitutes a major work both in content and in sheer mass . . . While a master of nuance, Tem also knows when to achieve his desired effect through sheer, raw, power. There are moments when it's tempting to submit this author might be the world's most softspoken splatterpunk." -- Ed Bryant, Locus

"These are new myths for the weird and dislocated times we live in . . . all [the stories] are excellent, and the best of them stand comparison with the best of any writer working in the field." -- Steve Duffy, All Hallows

    Steve Rasnic Tem is a mythographer of the nightside. These 38 dark little tales peek and probe, with a surgeon's skill, into all the areas of our lives we'd just as soon not think about. The fears you have for the security and the safety of your family; the mental stability of the partner you've chosen to share your life with; the mistakes you've made and how they affect your loved ones; how the firm grip you used to have on your life, your work, and your sanity all seems to be slipping away. I can't recommend his work highly enough -- this collection, as well as his books "Excavations", "The Book of Days", "Deadfall Hotel", and the "In Concert" collection of stories written in collaboration with his wife Melanie Tem, are all well worth your time and attention. Once encountered, his work is not soon forgotten.
