Shadow Bones cover

    In Shadow Bones, Memmott pursues vectors that glance through sci-fi and fantasy into other magical and imaginative spaces, never ceasing to pose the central ontological question: 'What does it mean to be human?' From the residual memory of clones to a grandfather teaching his grandson to fish for the moon, these unique stories manage to entertain while quietly eschewing the snug comforts of genre. A promising fictional debut.
    Brian Evenson
    For David Memmott, Speculative Northwest's secret weapon, reality in our Age of Rust and Robots is about as stable as one of those particles in what's left of a Chernobyl core: always on the verge of shimmering into something that will take your breath away with its mythic resonance, wise magic, and compassionate imaginative fire. On into the unknown!
    Lance Olsen

Twelve speculative fictions by a Rhysling Award winner and author of three poetry collections, bringing together works that have appeared around the world in publications as diverse as Oregon East, the cult 1980s magazine New Pathways in Science Fiction and Fantasy, and Italy's L'Uomo Duplicato, all wrapped up in a luscious full-colour cover by Brian Clark.
