Inhaltsangabe: A is for Alien is award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan s first collection devoted entirely to her science-fiction work. It includes the critically acclaimed novelette Riding the White Bull (chosen for The Year s Best Science Fiction, 22nd Annual Collection), along with seven other tales of a less-than-utopian future. Ranging from the wastelands and mountains of Mars to the streets of a late 21st-Century Manhattan, from the moons of Europa and Saturn to an iceless Antarctica, these tales bring Kiernan s trademark brand of the eco-gothic to bear on what it means to be human and the paths and decisions that may face mankind only a little farther along.
From Publishers Weekly:
Known for dark fantasy that skates the edge of horror, Kiernan ( Tales of Pain and Wonder) turns to science fiction with equally unsettling effects in these eight stories. The mostly off-screen aliens in Zero Summer, The Pearl Diver and Bradbury Weather seem oddly tentative compared to the fully realized monsters of Kiernans fantasy tales, and Riding the White Bull, In View of Nothing and Ode to Katan Amano focus on fraught relationships more than their isolated, almost sterile settings. Fans of Kiernans fantasy will be more drawn to two poignant rejoinders to stories of post-human glory: Faces in Revolving Souls, wherein a woman is isolated from her smug new culture by surgical rejection, and A Season of Broken Dolls, whose nameless protagonist is fascinated and revolted by art made of people.
