Collected Stories by Lewis Shiner
An important and expansive collection from a vastly underrated writer. Shiner's fiction, interstitial (before the term was even coined) and exploratory, is stripped of any pretension, reveling in counterfactual numinosity. His characters exist in unfair worlds, trapped by circumstance yet always searching for Truth. Favorites include "Perfidia," "Primes," "Love in Vain" and "The Death of Che Guevara."
