Christopher Priest is one of the most acclaimed writers of both SF and literary fiction at work today. Here, for the first time in almost twenty years, is a collection of his short work. Largely previously uncollected, ranging from the horrific to the touching, the science fictional to the realist, these stories are a perfect demonstration of the breadth and power of Priest's writing.

Eleven stories are included, along with commentary and reflection from the author. Within these pages you will discover the stage magic-inspired horror of 'The Head and the Hand', the timeslip accidents of 'futouristic.co.uk', the impossible romance of 'Palely Loitering' and the present-day satire of 'Shooting an Episode'.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Britain's pre-eminent writer of literary science fiction - The Herald

Eerily powerful - Spectator

This is a quiet masterpiece in a career full of them: a gripping, mournful, powerful novel that guides the reader through truths - and fictions - about the way the media and what we recall can work together to fool us. - Guardian

Brilliantly constructed, cleverly contrived to fox our memories, so you end the novel trying to puzzle out what it was you just read. - Locus
