Overview

Strangeways returns and Hugo, Nebula and Locus award winner James Patrick Kelly is in holiday spirits. To celebrate, he’s offering two new stories at a bargain price so that all of you unwrapping Nooks, smartphones, tablets and the like will have answers to some of your strangest questions. For example, will Christmas survive the apocalypse? If you were uploaded into a computer, in what sense would you still be you? And how will you cope with your deceased but digitally-preserved family members when they gather on December 25th, 2061? The lead story, “The Best Christmas Ever” was a finalist for science fiction’s Hugo Award in 2005 and the romantic comedy “Candy Art” has been reprinted – and “respoken” on audio – several times. These stories plus an essay on your hard choices about immortality are featured in this edition of James Patrick Kelly’s Strangeways.

Product Details

Meet the Author

James Patrick Kelly has won the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards and his stories have been translated into nineteen languages. Many of the stories in Strangeways, his new digital magazine, have been chosen for selection in Year's Best Science Fiction anthologies. Publisher's Weekly calls Kelly "A meticulous craftsman in the demanding short-story form ... delivers tight, deceptively simple tales with complex, often delayed reverberations." Locus Magazine writes, "The overall effect of these tales is that while Kelly is something of a dark romantic with a fondness for getting his characters into tragic circumstances of isolation and alienation, he's also someone in love with the sheer narrative possibilities of SF, and with its old-fashioned capacity for wonder."
