OVERVIEW: F. Paul Wilsons third, and according to the author, final volume of short fiction. This is what he says in his newsletter: AFTERSHOCK & OTHERS: "My third and last collection of short fiction. I may put together some sort of omnibus volume in the future, or perhaps a special collection of stories from the Secret History of the World, but all those will be culled from SOFT & OTHERS, THE BARRENS & OTHERS, and this volume. I am pretty much done with short fiction. I cant give a reason for that. Simply put, the form no longer appeals to me." Hey, we dont like to hear that.. but glad another collection is avaialbe by F. Paul. - Dave. Aftershock & Others is the third collection of short fiction by New York Times bestselling author F. Paul Wilson, hailed by the Rocky Mountain News as “among the finest storytellers of our times.” The title novelette won the Bram Stoker Award and its companions touch on the past, present, and future—from the inflationary insanity of Weimar Germany (“Aryans and Absinthe”) to disco club–era Manhattan (“When He Was Fab”), to the rationing of medical services in a grim near future (“Offshore”). Wilson’s stylistic diversity and versatility are on display in stories that pay tribute to Ray Bradbury (“The November Game”), use a sentient killer virus as a point-of-view character (“Lysing toward Bethlehem”), and pay unabashed homage to pure pulp fiction in two yellow peril stories (“Sex Slaves of the Dragon Tong” and “Part of the Game”). And finally, Wilson treats us to his popular antihero Repairman Jack at his most inventive: trapped in a drugstore with four killers (“Interlude at Duane’s”). Remainder.
