Overview

Explorations of alienation, madness, the afterlife and post-apocalyptic existence fill this first volume of the collected short stories of G. Wayne Miller.

Best-known for his critically acclaimed non-fiction books and documentary films, Miller has been praised for his fiction writing, dating to his first book, Thunder Rise: A Novel of Terror. For several years, he was a regular at fantasy and horror conventions, notably NECON, the fabled annual gathering that has featured Stephen King, Peter Straub and other writers. Fiction remains his passion.

In these ten provocative science-fiction and horror tales, Miller bring readers inside darkly imagined worlds with a distinctive voice and mastery of characters, setting and narration. The title story, set in a dystopian future when the atmosphere has been all but incinerated, presents a nightmarish landscape of survival that resonates in this time of global warming. The Since the Sky Blew Off collection, first volume in a planed series, also includes new previously unpublished treatments for horror and science-fiction movies.

    A fantastically bleak set of tales....

    Writing with the aim of telling dark, bleak stories can sometimes be too tricky - there has to be some hope in there doesn't there?

    Most of the corny bits of hope are skipped here - and you are left with a worryingly dystopian collection that is probably too close to the truth in it's portrayal of Man's descent once the World looks like it's not going to fix itself. Don't bother saving yourself for an ending to make you glad of our redeemign qualities - the truth is, when the world is as close to it's end as these stories make out, we're unlikely to have any!

    Written with the full palette of dark colours available, there are some really great stories here, as well as two very good dramatic treatments (One excellently antique horror and one very darkly humourous political piece).

    I'm hoping for more of the same when Vol. 2 appears!
