• Welcome!

    The purpose of this site is to aquaint you with our imprint and to tell you about the books we sell. In an excess of reticence, perhaps, we keep the commercial pitch behind the green tabs above. Using them you can learn about us, our products, and other matters.

    What you see in front of you is our blog—a free-wheeling discussion about books, reading, literature, language, and much else likely to interest our customers—people who read books. Please comment and participate.

    And we'd really love it if you would buy our books.

Short Reviews of Short Fiction

“All Summer in a Day” (1954) by Ray Bradbury

Ray Bradbury packs more character and pathos into the six pages of “All Summer in a Day” than most authors squeeze out of a 250 page novel. What if the sun only came out from the rain clouds one day every seven years? And what if one little girl was the only child in her class to have seen it before?

Sure, I could tell you, but wouldn’t you rather read the story instead? It’s a good ’un.

–John A. Magee

“All Summer in a Day” by Rad Bradbury appears in The Very Best of Fantasy & Science Fiction.
