"Shiner doesn't work through dazzle, diversion, or sleight of hand. His prose is a model of clarity. When you come to the end of a story, you know what happened; you know how Shiner feels about it. The power seldom arises in trick and technique, but is located instead in voice and conviction. He is not the sort of writer who keeps an ironic distance. His work is more the heartfelt sort... The emotional world of these stories feels very like the real world to me." - from the introduction by Karen Joy Fowler


Containing 41 stories and extensive author's notes, Collected Stories is the definitive compilation of Shiner's short work. His best known stories are all here, including "The War at Home," "Twilight Time," "The Circle," "Perfidia," and "Mozart in Mirrorshades," as well as a brand new story, "The Death of Che Guevara."

The limited edition will be accompanied by Widows and Orphans, a chapbook of stories not in the main volume, including: "Deserted Cities of the Heart," (short story version), "How I Won the War on Drugs," (with Bruce Sterling) "The Shoemaker's Tale," "Like the Gentle Rain," and "You Never Know."
