Summary

When the apocalypse has come and gone, life still goes on for the survivors struggling to adapt to the new normal. 
In a drowned world, the descendants of surface dwellers remember the cities that were lost, the inhabitants of ocean floor colonies cling to outmoded customs and scavengers search the flooded ruins for anything that might be of use. In a world ravaged by droughts, two college students come face to face with how the other half lives. A lone explorer traverses the icy wasteland that used to be Europe. A group of children travels across a zombie-infested America in search of shelter and safety. After a robot uprising, a police officer is assigned to clean-up duties and finds an unexpected miracle among the ruins. And in a world blasted by electromagnetic solar storms, a nineteenth century technology suddenly becomes the sole means of long distance communication. 
This collection contains eight stories of life after the apocalypse of 24500 words or approximately 85 print pages altogether.

    “The combination of love and blades is a match to be enjoyed in many highly diverse ways.” – SF Revue  
    A decade ago, readers thrilled to the debut of a new series of elegant, romantic fantasy stories. Best-selling author Jacqueline Carey hailed the first Lace and Blade as “a banquet of adventure, intrigue, and romance.” Publisher’s Weekly wrote, “Readers will be left starry-eyed and hoping for the series to continue.” Now those hopes are fulfilled in this new volume, brimming with tales that enchant and delight. Here are stories of love and betrayal, of alchemy and swordplay, of lovers lost and found, of dreams denied and fulfilled -- from the secret heirs of Alexander the Great to a bard who sings traumatized dragons back to sanity to  an African girls’ cricket team to an American patriot on the eve of the Revolutionary War, from the rooftops of Victorian Paris to 17th Century India to imaginary but no less vivid lands and characters who will whisper to you of sweet, sweet dreams long after the final page is turned. 
    This volume includes stories by Robin Wayne Bailey, Carol Berg, Marie Brennan, Doranna Durgin, India Edghill, Rosemary Edghill, Heather Rose Jones, Pat MacEwen, Diana L. Paxson, Marella Sands, Dave Smeds, Judith Tarr, and Lawrence Watt-Evans.

    “With terse sentences that read like poetry, Schutt strips each scene of excess context and cuts to the heart of the moment….Schutt's haunting yet lyrical words linger long after the final page.”—Los Angeles Times
    
    
    
    Hailed by George Saunders as “a truly gifted writer,” with Pure Hollywood & Other Stories, Pulitzer Prize finalist and O Henry Prize winner Christine Schutt returns to the short story form that launched her acclaimed career and her inimitable style that John Ashbery once described as “pared down but rich, dense, fevered, exactly right and even eerily beautiful.” 
    
    
    
    In 11 captivating tales, Pure Hollywood brings us into private worlds of corrupt familial love, intimacy, longing, and danger. From an alcoholic widowed actress living in desert seclusion, to a young mother whose rejection of her child has terrible consequences, a newlywed couple who ignore the violent warnings of a painter burned by love, to an eerie portrait of erotic obsession, each story in Pure Hollywood is an imagistic snapshot of what it means to live and learn love and hurt.  
    
    
    
    In league with JD Salinger, Katherine Mansfield and Guy De Maupassant, in Pure Hollywood Schutt gives us sharply suspenseful and masterfully dark interior portraits of ordinary lives, infused with her signature observation and surprise. Timeless, incisive, and precise, these tales are a rush of blood to the head, portals through which we open our eyes and see the world anew.
