Jack Dann is the awardÂwinning, bestselling author of some of the most distinguished work in modern science fiction and fantasy, including the classic novels The Man Who Melted and The Memory Cathedral. But Dann is also the author of some of the most memorable short fiction of the last twenty-five years. Here is a generous helping of some of his best work.

From ÂThe Diamond Pit, a cautionary tale of the corrupting effects of wealth, to the Nebula Award-winning ÂDa Vinci Rising, to ÂJubilee, the haunting title story of this collection, this short collection fiction represents the most brilliant work in the fantastic to be seen in the last three decades. There are dark fables such as ÂThe Black Horn, which introduces a unicorn to modern-day Miami, and the nightnmarish visions of ÂA Quiet Revolution for Death. But Jack DannÂs visions can be funny, too, in tales such as ÂBad Medicine and ÂFairy Tale, though the comedians and ordinary guys caught up in a world beyond their ken may not always think so. And in works such as ÂTattoos and ÂKaddish, Dann even addresses the ultimate human hope of redemption.
