Prisoners & Other Stories LIMITED  $24.95 



Afterword by Dean R. Koontz

In a recent interview, Ed Gorman said that his work is essentially about "outsiders trying to strike some sort of weary compromise with a hostile world."

The prize-winning stories collected here certainly reflect that theme.

From the young man visiting his father in prison -- to the teenage girl trying to escape the grip of her mothers boyfriend -- to the father searching for his daughters murderer... these are people we see every day, yet we did not know intimately until now.

As Reflections noted, "Ed Gorman is a serious writer with a voice and vision all his own..." And, in the words of The San Francisco Chronicle, "Ed Gorman has a wonderful style of writing that allows him to say things of substance in an entertaining way."

Prisoners offers the reader a variety of moods and styles -- from the mournful beauty of "The Wind From Midnight" to the hard-boiled sorrow of "Failed Prayers" to the bitter power of the Shamus-winning "Turn Away."

Here youll find crime, horror and mainstream stories by the writer whose first novel, Rough Cut, Library Journal called "an auspicious debut" and whose most recent novel, The Night Remembered, The San Diego Chronicle said made Gorman "one of todays best crime writers."

Prisoners also contains a warm and witty afterword by best-selling author Dean R. Koontz.

Baltimore, MD: CD Publications, First Edition. 6 X 9. Hard Cover. As New / As New. ISBN: 188147500X. This is Ed Gormans first short story collection and features twenty-two gems within. Introduction by the author. Afterword by Dean R. Koontz. Only version published.
