“Jack Dann is the kind of inspired madman who comes along all too rarely. He is an exacting craftsman and a fevered visionary; his prose sings, his people live and breathe and bleed, and his imaginary landscapes are vivid, surreal, and throb with a singular intensity…” - GEORGE R. R. MARTIN

In his newest collection of short fiction, award-winning author Jack Dann offers twenty tales of the fantastic which will take readers on flights of fancy, plumb the depths of the human imagination, and examine the human experience through the lens of fantasy, science fiction, and horror. Islands of Time is a collection which offers the best and worst of humanity, across time, space, and other dimensions.

Jack Dann has written or edited over eighty books, including the international bestseller The Memory Cathedral: a Secret History of Leonardo da Vinci, The Rebel: an Imagined Life of James Dean, The Silent, Bad Medicine, and The Man Who Melted. His work has been compared to Jorge Luis Borges, Roald Dahl, Lewis Carroll, Ray Bradbury, J. G. Ballard, Mark Twain, and Philip K. Dick. Library Journal called Dann “…a true poet who can create pictures with a few perfect words,” and Best Sellers said that “Jack Dann is a mind-warlock whose magicks will confound, disorient, shock, and delight.”

  He is a recipient of the Nebula Award, the World Fantasy Award (twice), the Australian Aurealis Award (three times), the Chronos Award, the Darrell Award for Best Mid-South Novel, the Ditmar Award (five times), the Peter McNamara Achievement Award and the Peter McNamara Convenors’ Award for Excellence, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the Premios Gilgames de Narrativa Fantastica award. He has also been honored by the Mark Twain Society (Esteemed Knight).

His latest novel is Shadows in the Stone: a Book of Transformations (IFWG). New York Times bestselling author Kim Stanley Robinson called it “such a complete world that Italian history no longer seems comprehensible without his cosmic battle of spiritual entities behind and within every historical actor and event.” His most recent books include the collection Masters of Science Fiction: Jack Dann (Centipede Press) and The Writer’s Guide to Alternate History (Bloomsbury). Dr. Dann is also an Adjunct Senior Research Fellow in the School of Communication and Arts at the University of Queensland. He lives in Australia on a farm overlooking the sea.
