About the eBook:
The Cemetery Dance Select series invites some of our favorite authors to spotlight a sampling of their own short fiction: award-winners, stories they consider their best or that had the most impact on their career—or neglected favorites they feel deserve a second look.
Long-time fans will enjoy revisiting some classic tales. New readers will find this series a handy introduction to each author’s best work.
Each Cemetery Dance Select mini-collection includes an exclusive Afterword where the author explains the reasoning behind each selection, and provides insights into the writing of each story.
The stories Lisa Tuttle has chosen for this collection are:
Lisa Tuttle was born and raised in Houston, Texas, where she began writing as a child. She made her first short story sales while a student at Syracuse University in New York, and won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer in 1974. She has worked as a journalist in both America and Britain, and has reviewed science fiction and fantasy for The Times. In 1990 she moved to the Scottish Highlands, where she lives with her husband, also a novelist, and her daughter.
Her first novel, Windhaven, was written in collaboration with George R. R. Martin. Other novels include Familiar Spirit, Gabriel, Lost Futures (short-listed for the Arthur C. Clarke Award), The Pillow Friend (described by Neil Gaiman as "a nightmarish distaff monkey's paw of a book that is impossible to forget"), The Mysteries (praised by Michael Moorcock as "her best novel to-date"), and, most recently, The Silver Bough. She has written a dozen books for children and several non-fiction books, most notably the Encyclopedia of Feminism published in 1986.
