Avram Davidson was one of the great original American writers of this century. He was erudite, cranky, Jewish, wildly creative, and sold most of his wonderful stories to pulp magazines.

Now, his estate and his friends have brought together a definitive collection of his finest work, each story introduced by an SF luminary: writers like Ursula K. Le Guin, William Gibson, Poul Anderson, Gene Wolfe, Guy Davenport, Peter S. Beagle, Gregory Benford, Thomas M. Disch, and dozens of others. This is a volume every lover of fantasy will need to own.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Not merely a treasury, it’s a genuine treasure. Some of its pages will carry you away to strange seas and shores, others will show you the marvelous within the seemingly ordinary, and just about all of them will take your breath away. But that’s what magicians do.”

    Washington Post Book World

  • “Davidson had one of the most original imaginations in the history of American SF and fantasy…and he deserves to be enjoyed by generations of ordinary readers rather than left to the dubious mercy of SF academics.”
