Description

"Aftershock & Others" is the third collection of short fiction by" New York Times" bestselling author F. Paul Wilson, hailed by the "Rocky Mountain News" as "among the finest storytellers of our times." The title novelette won the Bram Stoker Award and its companions touch on the past, present, and future--from the inflationary insanity of Weimar Germany ("Aryans and Absinthe") to disco club-era Manhattan ("When He Was Fab"), to the rationing of medical services in a grim near future ("Offshore"). Wilson's stylistic diversity and versatility are on display in stories that pay tribute to Ray Bradbury ("The November Game"), use a sentient killer virus as a point-of-view character ("Lysing toward Bethlehem"), and pay unabashed homage to pure pulp fiction in two yellow peril stories ("Sex Slaves of the Dragon Tong" and "Part of the Game"). And finally, Wilson treats us to his popular antihero Repairman Jack at his most inventive: trapped in a drugstore with four killers ("Interlude at Duane's").show more

Review quote

Praise for F. Paul Wilson: “F. Paul Wilson is a great storyteller and a thoughtful one. He speculates about real science to generate real suspense while raising troubling, real issues we may all be dealing with much sooner than we expect.” --David Morrell, author of "First Blood "“F. Paul Wilson is a writer’s writer, and I grab anything he’s written with enthusiasm.” --Joe R. Lansdale, author of "Freezer Burn "“Like the best of Dean Koontz’s work, Wilson’s work combines an action-adventure yarn with a touch of the fantastic.” --"The Denver Post"""show more
