Tales of Fear and Wonder
A collection of stories by

Fear and wonder, a powerful combination.

Terry Dowling is one of the best kept secrets in modern science fiction, fantasy and horror, a storyteller that Grand Master Jack Vance in his introduction calls, 'A very talented writer, one I admire and respect.'

Locus saw Dowling s first book, Rynosseros, as placing him among the 'masters of the field', while editor David G. Hartwell calls him 'A master of the best prose stylists in science fiction and fantasy.' In the words of Harlan Ellison, 'Here is Jack Vance, Cordwainer Smith and Tiptree/Sheldon come again, reborn in one wonderful'll purr and growl with delight.'

Such praise is certainly deserved. Winner of the 2007 International Horror Guild Award for Best Collection, Dowling's stories have appeared in The Year's Best Science Fiction, The Year's Best SF, The Year's Best Fantasy, The Best New Horror and The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, in major anthologies like Songs of the Dying Earth, Inferno, The Dark, and Wizards, and such leading publications as SciFiction, The Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction and Interzone.

Now, for the first time, Amberjack: Tales of Fear & Wonder gives us the best of Terry s recent uncollected work in a single wonderful volume. From invasion by the truly alien in 'The Lagan Fishers', 'Truth Window' and 'Flashmen' to the gut-wrenching horror of 'Toother' and 'The Suits at Auderlene', from the day-after-tomorrow, hardline SF of 'He Tried to Catch the Light' to the epic sweep and swashbuckling adventure of 'The Library', this is imaginative storytelling as it should be: provocative, unsettling, beautifully crafted, full of invention and genuine surprise and, yes, a definite touch of the dark side.
