Secret Life Reduxpromo sheet

Secret Life Redux (Select Fire). This trade paperback reprint from Prime Books “remixes” the original Golden Gryphon hardcover by removing four stories that constitute juvenalia, adding two short-shorts, deconstructing the introduction, re-weaving the title story through the text, and including additional materials, including story fragments, in the notes at the end of the book. This version is especially useful for beginning and intermediate writers to study for this reason. A version of this edition has been published in Germany by Shayol Press under the title A Heart For Lucretia.
