Overview

Edited by Lawrence M. Schoen, this collection contains a mix of fantasy and science fiction short stories, twelve in all, including "While Ireland Holds These Graves" which earned Doyle a win with Writers of the Future. Richard Paul Russo, author of SHIP OF FOOLS, has said "Tom Doyle promises to be a unique voice and a trailblazer in Science Fiction as it moves into the future." Tom Doyle's short fiction has been described various as "intelligent & beautiful," "dizzying," and "intelligent and creepy stuff." This collection, his first, will hit you with a feral, magnetic intensity.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Short fiction author Doyle offers a variety pack of speculative fiction in his first collection, including riveting near-future explorations, space opera that sometimes crosses into the bizarre or grotesque, and fanciful stories built on the frameworks of Earthly cultures. Doyle's near-future narratives are his strongest, with character development and plot taking center stage, supported by fascinatingly plausible tech developments.
