Laughter at the Academy

(2019)
A collection of stories by

 
 
From fairy tale forest to gloomy gothic moor, from gleaming epidemiologist's lab to the sandy shores of Neverland, Seanan McGuire's short fiction has been surprising, delighting, confusing, and transporting her readers since 2009. Now, for the first time, that fiction has been gathered together in one place, ready to be enjoyed one twisting, tangled tale at a time. Her work crosses genres and subverts expectations.

Meet the mad scientists of "Laughter at the Academy" and "The Tolling of Pavlov's Bells." Glory in the potential of a Halloween that never ends. Follow two very different alphabets in "Frontier ABCs" and "From A to Z in the Book of Changes." Get "Lost," dress yourself "In Skeleton Leaves," and remember how to fly. All this and more is waiting for you within the pages of this decade-spanning collection, including several pieces that have never before been reprinted. Stories about mermaids, robots, dolls, and Deep Ones are all here, ready for you to dive in.

This is a box of strange surprises dredged up from the depths of the sea, each one polished and prepared for your enjoyment. So take a chance, and allow yourself to be surprised.
