The second collection from Elastic Press this month is a book of short stories by Daniel Marcus - a Berkeley based American writer with a fascinating history and a fine pedigree. His science fiction short stories have appeared in many of the genre major magazine venues - most notably in Asimov's where his work has appeared often. Now for the first time, his writings have been gathered together in a single smart trade paperback volume.
"Love stories, every one. Dan Marcus knows the shape and sound of tomorrow. I ndeed , like Stross and Doctorow, he is one of its most literate creators. Seeing his edgy stories together, we discover that he's been working ancient ground with modern tools. This remarkable first collection from a veteran author is a treasure for readers." -- Terry Bisson, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and Theodore Sturgeon Awards
