Partial Eclipse [PDF]

by Graham Joyce
Graham Joyce, author of Requiem, Indigo, and other award-winning novels, has written some of the most indelible fiction of the past ten years. His work is intelligent, provocative, utterly unpredictable, and has won him a devoted following on both sides of the Atlantic. Subterranean Press now proudly presents Graham's first collection of shorter fiction: Partial Eclipse, a hugely entertaining volume that features an impressive variety of styles, subjects, and narrative modes.

The stories and novellas gathered here range from wartime England to Leningrad under the Siege, from the coal mines of Coventry to the hallucinatory beauty of the Greek islands. Some of the stories ("Gap Sickness," "The Careperson") utilize overtly science-fictional premises. Some ("Under the Pylon," "Black Dust") recall the overall ambience of The Tooth Fairy, Graham's unforgettable portrait of adolescent rites of passage. Others, such as "Candia" and "Xenos Beach," are accounts of magical, erotic, and dangerous encounters in exotic ports of call. And some of the stories transcend all traditional categories. One of these is the unforgettable novella, "Leningrad Nights," a story of suffering and survival in a frozen, surreal city ruled by "the blind justice of the Whistling Shell."
