Product Description

Product Description

Spaceships which pass through the sky like endless clouds. A woman whose skin reveals the names of sailors fated to die at sea. A virus which causes people who touch each other to turn into crystalline trees. From Nebula Award nominated author Jason Sanford comes his first short story collection, Never Never Stories.

Ranging from science fiction to fantasy, stories contained in Never Never Stories have won the Interzone Readers’ Poll, been nominated for the BSFA Award, longlisted for the British Fantasy Award, and printed in multiple magazines and book anthologies including Year's Best SF. The collection also contains new material including a never-before published story, a brand-new introduction, and an original essay on archeology and fantasy.

Stories included in this collection:

“The Ships Like Clouds, Risen by Their Rain”
“When Thorns Are The Tips Of Trees”
“Where Away You Fall”
“Here We Are, Falling Through Shadows”
“Peacemaker, Peacemaker, Little Bo Peep”
“Millisent Ka Plays in Realtime”
“Into the Depths of Illuminated Seas”
“A Twenty-First Century Fairy Love Story”
“Maps of the Bible”
“The Dragon of Tin Pan Alley”
“The Never Never Wizard of Apalachicola”

What others are saying about Jason Sanford’s short stories:

“Few SF/fantasy writers generate a buzz through short fiction alone, but Jason Sanford is an exception. Over the past few years, he's created a growing fan base through his brand of modern speculative fiction, something he called ‘SF Strange.’” – Jeff VanderMeer, Omnivoracious

“Interzone is really spoiling me when it publishes Jason Sanford so regularly. As far as I'm concerned, they couldn't publish too much of this author if they named it Jason Sanford's Science Fiction Magazine.” – Sam Tomaino, SFRevu

“A writer whose reputation grows with each story." – Colin Harvey, Suite101

“Sanford (and some other writers) are producing SF that truly has a different feel than much that has gone before.” – Rich Horton, Locus, February 2011

“Sanford expertly blends world building and storytelling. In fact, he makes it look easy.” – John DeNardo, SF Signal

5.0 out of 5 stars An entertaining read 3 Feb 2014
By Dave Little - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Each story stood on its own and they all kept me turning the pages. I particularly liked the short story format because it allowed me to read a story and put it down - my current schedule does not allow me to get engrossed in a story for a long time. And sadly, hunting down good short stories often takes as long as reading them.
