Paperback

Book Description
Palaeobiology: A Synthesis was widely acclaimed both for its content and production quality. Ten years on, Derek Briggs and Peter Crowther have once again brought together over 150 leading authorities from around the world to produce Palaeobiology II. Using the same successful formula, the content is arranged as a series of concise articles, taking a thematic approach to the subject, rather than treating the various fossil groups systematically.This entirely new book, with its diversity of new topics and over 100 new contributors, reflects the exciting developments in the field, including accounts of spectacular newly discovered fossils, and embraces data from other disciplines such as astrobiology, geochemistry and genetics.Palaeobiology II will be an invaluable resource, not only for palaeontologists, but also for...

From Publishers Weekly
In his introduction to this quartet of new novellas by some of the U.K.'s best practicing horror writers, Crowther (The Longest Single Note) extols the importance of "subtlety and imagination" in the crafting of memorable tales of the macabre. The four stories here are low-key in their telling, but not all are the best examples of how an oblique approach can produce effective horror. In Terry Lamsley's eerie and sometimes darkly amusing "So Long Gerry," a student rents a flat that still seems to be occupied by its previous tenant and where a menacing alternate reality may be trying to assert itself. Mark Morris's "Stumps" suggests a malignant influence infesting the grounds of a family's newly purchased home through creepy, half-glimpsed twitchings of animated undergrowth. Where these two stories succeed in...

From Publishers Weekly
Though perhaps best known as an editor of anthologies of horror and dark fantasy (Destination Unknown, etc.), Crowther proves in this generous debut story collection to be a master of those genres. From the hypnotic stream-of-consciousness of "Incident on Bleecker Street" to the casual violence of "The Visitor," his writing in the 26 entries here--including poetry and an excerpt from a novel-in-progress--exhibits a stunning range. The power of music supplies the resonant theme of both "Head Acres" and the title story; in the former, music leads to death, while in the latter, music transcends it. "Home Comforts" turns the familiar slayer-vs.-vampire plot on its head, while the evocative and touching "Too Short a Death" shows that vampires can be as human as anyone else. "Gallagher's Arm" is a light Lovecraftian...

From Library Journal
From Ray Bradbury's gentle tale of love's conquest of fear ("The Love Affair"), never before published in the United States, to Michael Moorcock's ebullient homage to the Mars fiction of Leigh Brackett ("The Lost Sorceress of the Silent Citadel"), the 16 original stories in this collection capture the eternal fascination with the red planet. Including tales by Ian McDonald, Gene Wolfe, and other veteran sf authors, the stories in this volume range from science fantasy to high-tech adventure and belong in most libraries' sf collections.
