THE DISCIPLES OF APOLLO collects Eric Brown’s finest short fiction, from the contemporary title story, in which the victims of a terrible malaise retreat to a sequestered island to see out their final months, to the far future of Dark Calvary, set on the dying world of Tartarus Major whose sun is about to go nova. Whether set in space of the future, or Earth of the here and now, Brown’s stories are imbued with a passionate concern for the human condition and the need to deliver compelling narratives.

“The Children of Winter” and “Hunting the Slarque” won the BSFA Award for the best short story of 1999 and 2001 respectively, while “Zarla’s World” is original to the collection.

THE ICE GARDEN & OTHER STORIES gathers eight stories as varied in space and time as they are in theme, and features such tropes as alien visitors, space opera, near future satire, cloning, and even murder-mystery. “Conway and the Aliens” is set in his popular Starship Seasons future, while “Dimensions of Deceit” is the latest tale in the Salvageman Ed series. “The Trees of Terpsichore Three” is a collaboration with Michael Coney. Three stories are original to the volume.
