Overview

Bacigalupi creates believable, detailed, lived-in futures that just happen to portray an ugly set of sunsets for humanity on Earth....He is a truly dark bard, in the spirit of Ellison at his most vivid and cynical.—The Daily Camera

From Paolo Bacigalupi, author of The Wind-Up Girl; winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Locus Awards; and winner of the Theodore Sturgeon Memorial Award, comes a collection of eleven short science fiction stories. Social criticism, environmental advocacy, and political parable are at the core of Paolo’s work. Each tale is simultaneously a warning and a celebration of the tragic comedy that is the human experience.

These eleven stories represent the best of Bacigalupi’s work. They include the Hugo nominee “Yellow Card Man,” the Sturgeon Award-winning story “The Calorie Man,” and the Nebula- and Hugo-nominated story “The People of Sand and slag.” Readers of Ted Chiang and Kelly Link will enjoy this collection.

Skyhorse Publishing, under our Night Shade and Talos imprints, is proud to publish a broad range of titles for readers interested in science fiction (space opera, time travel, hard SF, alien invasion, near-future dystopia), fantasy (grimdark, sword and sorcery, contemporary urban fantasy, steampunk, alternative history), and horror (zombies, vampires, and the occult and supernatural), and much more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller, a national bestseller, or a Hugo or Nebula award-winner, we are committed to publishing quality books from a diverse group of authors.
