What is included with this book?
Last Plane to Heaven is the final and definitive short story collection of award-winning SF author Jay Lake, author of Green, Endurance, and Kalimpura.
Long before he was a novelist, SF writer Jay Lake, was an acclaimed writer of short stories. In Last Plane to Heaven, Lake has assembled thirty-two of the best of them. Aliens and angels fill these pages, from the title story, a hard-edged and breathtaking look at how a real alien visitor might be received, to the savage truth of "The Cancer Catechisms." Here are more than thirty short stories written by a master of the form, science fiction and fantasy both.
This collection features an original introduction by Gene Wolfe.
JAY LAKE lives and works in Portland, Oregon, within sight of an 11,000-foot volcano. He is the author of more than two hundred short stories, four collections, and a chapbook, along with ten novels including the acclaimed Green series. In 2004, Lake won the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. He also has been a Hugo nominee for his short fiction and a three-time World Fantasy Award nominee for his editing.
