…a new vision of both fantasy and sf, a startling blend of visceral imagery and fresh evocative prose that marked the evolution of imaginative fiction into a form that drew from fantasy, sf, and horror to create something indefinably new….From MiÃƒÂ©ville’s expansion on his world of New Crobuzon focusing on the deliberately mutilated creatures called the Remade (“Jack”) to Clive Barker’s horrifically stunning portrayal of two cities in literal battle (“In the Cities, the Hills”) the tales live up to their assigned category. Other contributing authors include Michael Moorcock, Sarah Monette, K.J. Bishop, and M. John Harrison. Highly recommended for all libraries interested in the latest in sf and fantasy as well as modern horror.
