In early April, Gollancz is due to publish a new collection of R.A. Lafferty‘s best short fiction! Here are the details…
Edited and collated by Jonathan Strahan, with a volume introduction by Neil Gaiman, THE BEST OF R.A. LAFFERTY is the authoritative collection of short fiction by R.A. Lafferty.
Acclaimed as one of the most original voices in modern literature, Raphael Aloysius Lafferty has been awarded and nominated for a multitude of accolades over the span of his career, including the World Fantasy Award for Lifetime Achievement.
This collection contains 22 unique tall tales, including:
‘Eurema’s Dam’ – introduced by Robert Silverberg

This is a great way to discover the works of a master of sci-fi!
