Leviathan Wept is an odyssey through wonders and nightmares, steered by master wordsmith Daniel Abraham. It's a trippy ride, with lots of surprises amid a powerhouse display of imagination and craft. From official release/information:
From back of book: What if you had a holocaust and nobody came?
Imagine a father who has sent his child's soul voyaging and seen it go astray. Or a backyard tale from the 1001 American Nights. Macbeth re-imagined as a screwball comedy. Three extraordinary economic tasks performed by a small expert in currency exhange that risk first career and then life and then soul.
From the disturbing beauty of "Flat Diane" (Nebula-nominee, International Horror Guild award-winner) to the idiosyncratic vision of "The Cambist and Lord Iron" (Hugo- and World Fantasy-nominee), Daniel Abraham has been writing some of the most enjoyable and widely admired short fiction in the genre for over a decade.
