Reviews

An SF novelette from a multi-award winning author.

"Doug Smith is, quite simply, the finest short-story writer Canada has ever produced in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and he's also the most prolific. His stories are a treasure trove of riches that will touch your heart while making you think." --Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids and FlashForward
 
"A great storyteller with a gifted and individual voice." --Charles de Lint
 
"One of Canada's most original writers of speculative fiction." --Library Journal 

"Would make a great movie...a unique, post-apocalyptic blend of The Road Warrior and X-Men. Bishop's powers are well thought-out and explained, and Mary is a sympathetic and effective narrator." --Tangent Online 

"All that you want in a sf short story is here from powerful characters, to action, mysterious happenings, and a dark, violent, but excellent tale. ... A bittersweet ending adds to the power of the story. (A++)" --Fantasy Book Critic
 
"Shows off Smith's flair for the cinematic. ... Smith plans to write a novel about the Dead Man...I do look forward to reading it." --Strange Horizons
 
"Has echoes of Stephen King wandering about its post-apocalyptic narrative." --Quill and Quire
 
"A wonderful example of the places this author is unafraid to go." --SF Crowsnest Reviews
 
"The style and subtleties of the storytelling kept me firmly on the edge of my seat. ... The characters were what really impressed me, though--by a few lines into meeting each one you had a clear and definable presence in your mind." --SF Crowsnest Reviews

Book Description

Mary and her teenage son, Jase, survive by their own wits in a post-plague Earth. On the run from a vicious gang, they are saved by Bishop, a man with mysterious powers who just may be the Dead Man, the legendary hero of the Fall of Earth. But Bishop's dark past catches up with them all, forcing Bishop to choose between his love for Mary and Jase, or revenge against the men who killed his family.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
