Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

An eclipse is a rare and unusual event, when the world is transformed and the sky becomes a dark eldritch thing. It's a time when anything could happen, when any kind of story just might be true. That sense of the strange and wonderful guides Eclipse: New Science Fiction and Fantasy, the first volume in an exciting new annual anthology series edited by acclaimed anthologist Jonathan Strahan.

Set to become a major event on the science fiction and fantasy calendar,Eclipse: New Science Fiction and Fantasy gathers together new science fiction and fantasy stories by the best writers working today. You can see that in Eclipse 1, which features extraordinary tales by Peter S. Beagle, Jack Dann and Paul Brandon, Terry Dowling, Andy Duncan, Jeffrey Ford, Kathleen Ann Goonan, Eileen Gunn, Gwyneth Jones, Ellen Klages, Maureen F. McHugh, Garth Nix, Lucius Shepard, Bruce Sterling and Ysabeau S. Wilce.

Review:

"Each of the 16 selections in Strahan's superb anthology (the launch of an annual series) does a disturbing take on a premise that genre fans may find familiar from more mundane examples of science fiction, fantasy or horror. Paul Brandon and Jack Dann's 'The Transformation of Targ' and Ysabeau S. Wilce's 'Quartermaster Returns,' both horror stories, simultaneously unsettle and amuse. Jeffrey Ford's metaphorical 'The Drowned Life' explores a debtor's despair. Peter S. Beagle's 'The Last and Only or, Mr. Moscowitz Becomes French' veers all too close to contemporary reality, while Terry Dowling's 'Toother' is as much about the grim realities of the Napoleonic and American Civil Wars as it is about the horror of serial killers. Ellen Klages's 'Mrs. Zeno's Paradox' plays a delightful twist on the classical thought experiment. Gwyneth Jones's 'In the Forest of the Queen' is at once hauntingly ethereal and an arresting reinterpretation of humans wandering into faerie. Every selection both defines and challenges our genre expectations." Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
