Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

A chimerascope is an instrument for viewing fantasies. In Smith’s hands, it certainly delivers some interesting ones. The collection-opener, “Scream Angel,” is about an ex-soldier running a circus of aliens saved from death or slavery at the hands of the military and what happens when special forces catch up to him and reveal his secret. At the opposite end of the book, “Memories of the Dead Man” presents a woman recalling her time with Bishop, known as the Dead Man, in a post-apocalyptic scenario in which he’s bent on revenge, and she’s trying to survive with her young son. In between, there’s “The Dancer at the Red Door,” in which a man desperate to escape his life gets more than he bargained for when he follows the dancer and her song into a strange, hidden club. There are also fantasies of ex-goddesses, interstellar explorers, alien artifacts, and others in this engaging and entertaining volume, pieces of whose content resonate after the book is finished. --Regina Schroeder

Review

"A massively enjoyable trek ... all filtered through Smith's remarkable imagination and prodigious talent. ... Smith's writing, evocative yet understated, gracefully brings to life his imagined realms." --Quill and Quire, *Starred Review*
 
"Showcases the inventive mind and immense storytelling talent of one of Canada's most original writers of speculative fiction." --Library Journal 
 
"A gifted writer ... Smith paints his worlds so well that you are transported within a paragraph or two and remain in transit until the short story ends." --Broken Pencil Magazine
 
"An entertaining selection of stories that deftly span multiple genres" --Publishers Weekly
  
"An engaging and entertaining volume, pieces of whose content resonate after the book is finished."--Booklist 
 
"Douglas Smith is an extraordinary author whom every lover of quality speculative fiction should read. Rating: A+"--Fantasy Book Critic 
 
"Speaks volumes of his range and future potential. ... Smith is definitely an author who deserves to be more widely read." --Strange Horizons 
 
"A beautifully diverse selection of short tales that runs the full spectrum of the speculative genres. The tales are well-crafted, easily digestible; several of the stories are incredibly moving and stick with the reader long after." -- 2011 Sunburst Award jury 
 
"A superb collection... a collection you'll want to own and re-read. ... It's a complex mix: one of the many reasons this collection succeeds so powerfully." --Ideomancer Magazine
