       Additional Information  
      For perhaps two decades, a small group of writers rooted in the genres of science fiction, fantasy, and horror have been simultaneously exploring and erasing the boundaries of those genres by creating fiction of remarkable depth and power. Their connections to the genres they have been radically redefining have, for many of these writers, limited the appreciation of their accomplishments to a specialized readership. For example, though John Crowley and Jonathan Carroll have massive underground reputations, and Peter Straub has written two books with Stephen King and other bestselling novels such as Ghost Story, Koko, and The Throat, many if not most readers of Conjunctions will be unfamiliar with their work. In this haunting and beautiful collection of tales, Crowley, Carroll, and Straub join Elizabeth Hand, China Mieville, M. John Harrison, Neil Gaiman, and Kelly Link to demonstrate precisely how science fiction, fantasy, and horror have been unobtrusively colonizing serious literature during the past twenty years. As an added bonus, science fiction and fantasy experts Gary K. Wolfe and John Clute offer a critical perspective and explain everything in sight. With original cover art by master cartoonist Gahan Wilson.
    Contributors Include: Peter Straub, Gary K. Wolfe, John Clute, John Crowley, Jonathan Carroll, Elizabeth Hand, China Mieville, John M. Harrison, Neil Gaiman, and Kelly Link among others.

    Edited by Peter Straub.
