What is included with this book?


Shuteye for the Timebroker gathers a wide, wild assortment of stories that collectively represent critically acclaimed author Paul Di Filippo's extensive concerns, themes and styles. Pure science fiction in the "Galaxy" mode can be found in the title piece, while modern-day publishing practices get a raking-over in the satirical "The Secret Sutras of Sally Strumpet" (included in The Year's Best Science Fiction Twenty-Second Annual Collection, edited by Gardner Dozois). Humorous fantasies such as "Captain Jill" and "Billy Budd" segue into a Dunsanyian tale such as "Walking the Great Road." There's a touch of horror to be found in "Underground," "Eel Pie Stall," and "We're All In This Alone" (the latter co-written with award-winner Michael Bishop). A politically-charged story of a fantastic assassin occurs in "Shadowboxer." Finally, the nearly three dozen vignettes under the title "The Farthest Schorr" form a mini-collection in themselves, as they take flight from the surreal paintings of Todd Schorr.

Author Biography

Paul Di Filippo lives in Providence, RI, with his mate of thirty years, Deborah Newton, two cats named Mab and Penny, and a cocker spaniel (large, brown, male) named Brownie. Of late, he has been turning his talents to scripting comics. But he continues to write stories and novels as well. His novel, TIME'S BLACK LAGOON, features a certain amphibious creature from a classic 1950's film.
