Seventeen of writer Michael Bishop's favourite stories were handpicked from his previously uncollected works to create this compelling collection, providing an excellent overview of a career that includes award-winning science fiction, horror, fantasy, satire, space opera, and mystery.

In A Tapestry of Little Murders, a murderer attempts to escape along a literal road to self-destruction.

A medical missionary, tortured by government thugs, reveals her dying wish in With a Little Help from Her Friends.

In The Procedure, an operation to remove a tumourous growth will hopefully excise from the patient's mind and body all tendencies toward faith and superstition.

From futuristic mystery and Vietnam-era dark fantasy to theological speculation on Christ's death, a variety of lyrical voices speak through these haunting stories.

An essay by the author divulges the genesis of each story.
