The signed/limited hardcover is $40; the signed, leather-bound deluxe edition with slipcase is $99 (only 13 of these are available). I believe the trade paperback will be $19.99. Cover art is by the right beastly M. Wayne Miller. For more info, and to order, click here.

This book is a pretty thorough cross-section of my short fiction from the past 20 years; six of the tales are relatively new and never-before-published. Whichever edition may appeal to you most, I think I can guarantee you'll get your money's worth. Give it a try. Note: Other Gods, my earlier short fiction collection, is also available at Dark Regions, also with cover art by M. Wayne Miller. For more info on it, click here.
