  • Bear and Butterfly
    by Monahan, Bob

    This book is for every mismatched best friendship on the planet. If you have
    ever wondered how some folks become "best friends," wonder no more. How likely
    would it be for a bear and a butterfly to become unconditional buddies. Not
    very, of course. That is, unless, you are able to see with your eyes closed and
    hear the message in the silence of the night. There is a bit of BEAR and
    BUTTERFLY in everyone. How willing are you to find your spirit in the pages of
    this book?

  • The Best of Gene Wolfe : A Definitive Retrospective of His Finest Short Fiction
    by Wolfe, Gene

    From a literary perspective, this will certainly be the best collection of the
    year in science fiction and fantasy. Gene Wolfe, of whom The Washington Post
    said, "Of all SF writers currently active none is held in higher esteem," has
    selected the short fiction he considers his finest into one volume. There are
    many award winners and many that have been selected for various Year's Best
    anthologies among the thirty-one stories, which include: "Petting Zoo," "The
    Tree Is My Hat," "The Island of Dr. Death and Other Stories," "The Hero as
    Werewolf," "Seven American Nights," "The Fifth Head of Cerberus," "The Detective
    of Dreams," and "A Cabin on the Coast." Gene Wolfe has produced possibly the
    finest and most significant body of short fiction in the SF and fantasy field in
    the last fifty years, and is certainly among the greatest living writers to
    emerge from the genres. This is the first retrospective collection of his entire
    career. It is for the ages.

    father, Juan Rodrigo listens to the spirits of the recently deceased asthey tell
    their life stories--stories that often reveal far more than is known by those
    still alive. It's Don Rodrigo's duty to relay these accounts from one world to
    the next, and though the details thataren't always well received, he is a
    respected member of the community encouraging people toaccept and to forgive. He
    is also raising his own daughter, on the brink of adulthood, who falls in
    lovewith a boy her father doesn't approve of. Combining magic realism, ribald
    frolics, and flights of fancy,The Gravedigger is a heart-warming tale of lives,
    deaths, and love.
