As William Faulkner once observed, "The past isn't dead. It isn't even past." And the past of the American South lives on in a long literary tradition where fantasy and reality blur. It is evident in the writing of giants such as Faulkner himself, Flannery O'Connor, Mark Twain, Edgar Allan Poe, Manly Wade Wellman, Truman Capote, Alice Walker, and many others. Steeped in this tradition and proud to be its inheritors, storytellers and editors F. Brett Cox and Andy Duncan have gathered together stories of the unseen and magical American South by some of the most brilliantly talented Southern writers of our time. From darkly imagined, powerful tales by Bret Lott, Lynn Pitts, Kalanu ya Salaam, Brad Watson, and Don Webb to a deeply affecting and sensual story by Honorée Fanonne Jeffers, to atmospheric works by Richard Butner, James L. Cambias, and Jack McDevitt, to wildly funny stories by Scott Edelman and Michael Swanwick, these original fictions will delight readers who appreciate the unique wealth and breadth of the Southern literary tradition and its natural affinity for the fantastic. With the addition of wonderful reprinted stories by Michael Bishop, Fred Chappell, Andy Duncan, John Kessel, Kelly Link, Sena Jeter Naslund, Daniel Wallace, and Gene Wolfe, this collection is a crossroads of styles and themes where Southern and Fantastic literary traditions meet. Together these stories paint a wide canvas of the real and mythic South in all its fabulous, terrible, joyous, chaotic uniqueness. They are set in all the Southern landscapes of the mind, from the shores of South Carolina to the city of New Orleans, from small-town Mississippi to the streets of modern Atlanta, from the ghosts of ante-bellum splendor to the shadows of what might be. The contributors range from realistic to Gothic, from magic realists to satirists. What they share in common is the South and the endless stories it inspires. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Deborah Installs ›Der Roboter der Herzen hören konnte‹ ist ein herzerwärmender und höchst unterhaltsamer Roman über den Wert von Freundschaft und Familie. Kommen Sie mit auf eine Reise, die um die ganze Welt geht, und verlieben Sie sich in einen Roboter, der Öl verliert, wenn er nervös ist. Und in einen Mann, der nervös wird, wenn es um Gefühle geht. Der Engländer Ben Chambers hat eine Frau und ein Haus. Damit ist er zufrieden – eben so zufrieden, wie man sein kann, wenn man eine Frau und ein Haus hat und sonst nichts tut. Doch eines Morgens sitzt ein Roboter in seinem Garten, betrachtet die Pferde auf dem Feld hinter dem Haus und geht einfach nicht weg. Der kleine Roboter heißt Tang, ist von oben bis unten mit Schmutz und Öl verschmiert und entpuppt sich bei genauerer Inspektion als ein Uralt-Modell der ersten Generation. Ben weiß nicht, was er mit dem Schrotthaufen anstellen soll, doch der verfolgt ihn von nun an auf Schritt und Tritt und möchte sein Freund sein. Als Ben zufällig bemerkt, dass sein kleiner Roboter Flüssigkeit verliert, erkennt er, wie sehr ihm der Kleine ans Herz gewachsen ist.. Und plötzlich will er, dass Tang repariert wird. Auch, wenn er dafür einmal kreuz und quer durch die ganze Welt reisen muss, um den Hersteller ausfindig zu machen. Ihre gemeinsame Reise wird zu einer lebensverändernden Erfahrung. Das perfekte Geschenk für Technikfans und Technikfeinde aller Altersklassen. Es scheint eine Fügung des Schicksals zu sein, wenn eine Frau erst einen Mann heiratet, der Install mit Nachnamen heißt – also „installieren“ –, und dann kurze Zeit später ein Buch über einen Roboter schreibt. Deborah Install wurde durch die Geburt ihres Sohnes zu einem Roman inspiriert, der von der Freundschaft zwischen großen und kleinen Menschen handelt. Dass aus dem kleinen Mensch dann ein Roboter wurde, ist vielleicht doch ihrem Nachnamen geschuldet.

Taylorżs fourth collection offers a combination of the realistic and the . . .Skewed, that word must best describe the characters, situations, and timeframes in this collection, A Masque for the Fields of Time. Take the opening story, where a dance seems to be happening during the narratorżs youth, since his baby-sitter is busily flirting on the dance floor with another teenager. But then time skews and the dance is happening -- when? And those puppets in the rafters, seemingly pulling strings on all the dancers -- just what are they doing? Well, maybe the collectionżs last story will clear things up . . . or does it only skew matters further, for this storyżs protagonist is swimming, yes swimming, on a mission to obtain headstones -- now irritatingly called żgrave markers,ż the narrator complains. Okay then, in another story we at least have the comfort of Jean-Paul Sartre and Albert Camus confronting Simone de Beauvoir -- but then why do tiny voices haunt the professed atheistic trio with religious barbs? With humor both grim and playful, all the stories in this collection explore the twists human perception can take.
