A Few Last Words for the Late Immortals
Bonney Lake: 2021
Trade paperback, New,
“This retrospective Michael Bishop collection of fifty short pieces (thirty-four stories, fifteen poems or prose-poems, and one amusing Moon-based play about writing SF, ‘The Grape Jelly and Mustard Method’) spans the author's entire career, from ‘Asytages's Dream,’ written while Bishop was a college student, to ‘Yahweh's Hour,’ an acerbic but moving work of science-fantasy political satire composed in 2020.
The collection's most distinctive attribute, however, lies in the fact that no contribution is longer than 3,000 words and most are shorter, a kind of Palm-of-the-Hand Stories for lovers of short fiction, heartfelt pieces that afford the reader as much meat as they do flash.” This is a print-on-demand edition. #69172
