Item description for Brighten to Incandescence: 17 Stories by Lucius Shepard Michael Bishop...

Seventeen of writer Michael Bishop's favorite stories were handpicked from his previously uncollected works to create this compelling collection, providing an excellent overview of a career that includes award-winning science fiction, horror, fantasy, satire, space opera, and mystery. In "A Tapestry of Little Murders," a murderer attempts to escape along a literal road to self-destruction. A medical missionary, tortured by government thugs, reveals her dying wish in "With a Little Help from Her Friends." In "The Procedure," an operation to remove a tumorous growth will hopefully excise from the patient's mind and body all tendencies toward faith and superstition. From futuristic mystery and Vietnam-era dark fantasy to theological speculation on Christ's death, a variety of lyrical voices speak through these haunting stories. An essay by the author divulges the genesis of each story.

Reviews - What do customers think about Brighten to Incandescence: 17 Stories?

For anyone who enjoys a deftly written short story  Jul 20, 2003
Brighten To Incandescence is an impressive anthology of seventeen short stories written by Nebula Award-winning author Michael Bishop. From a heart-touching piece on the life of a Hollywood B-movie actor; to a brutal murderer's self-destructive path and ultimate end; to a conversation with Mary Shelley's ghost, these involving, adroitly written stories-with-a-twist, are gathered largely from small-press publications and anthologies, are so good that it's extremely difficult to read just one. Brighten To Incandescence is highly recommended reading for anyone who enjoys a deftly written short story in general, and to the legions of Michael Bishop fans in particular!
