John Shirley is my favorite author and it is no surprise that his story is at the top of my list. It wasn’t one of O’Brien’s picks for 1938. Highly recommended for libraries and personal libraries of genre fans who also appreciate the classics.

Ralan’s market listings focus exclusively on speculative fiction; that is, science fiction, fantasy, horror and related genres.
