Heroes and Villainsby Lewis Shiner

Tales of adventure and suspense:

- Five stage magicians set out to topple Hitler in 1934.
- A middle-aged lawyer finds himself battling new, predatory species.
- A hate-filled demagogue threatens the peaceful existence of the cats and dogs at the city dump.
- A secret agent in 1963 Egypt must stop a madman bent on world domination.

These four stories show Lewis Shiner writing 'hard-edged, often political genre fiction at its finest,' (Publishers Weekly). For those new to Shiner's work, Heroes and Villains is an ideal starting point, offering the complex characters and moral issues of his acclaimed novels in condensed and action-packed form. For Shiner's many fans, who include George R.R. Martin, Jonathan Lethem, and Karen Joy Fowler, no further incentive is required.

Born in Texas, Lewis Shiner is a musician, rock music journalist and award-winning author, writing across genres. He has published six short stories collections and eight novels, including Glimpses, winner of the World Fantasy Best Novel Award.

From the author of OUTSIDE THE GATES OF EDEN.

Four short stories, showcasing Shiner's powerful writing style.

'The Black Sun' was nominated for the Sidewise Award for Alternate History.

'High adventure, exotic locales, and beautiful women all triumph. Shiner merges well-researched and detailed historical elements with cinematic action and crisp writing' Publishers Weekly

'First-rate from end to end, with a wild range of subjects' James P Blaylock
