Summary

Three tricky tangles with technology:



 
Once
Upon A Midnight

 
A woman whose job at a bio-weapons lab is
to calculate the destructiveness of the world’s most deadly organisms is
overwhelmed by a personal calamity. And the results could be catastrophic.
(First published in In Poe’s Shadow, Dark Opus Press, 2011 and Tesseracts 16:
Parnassus Unbound, Hades Publications, Inc., 2012.)

 
Democracy

 
A small tropical island claims to have
perfect democracy thanks to technology enabling every citizen to vote on every
issue of governance. When cynical reporter Jayne Connor investigates, the truth
is stranger than anything she could have imagined.

 
Shakedown

 
A top gaming competitor seems like the
perfect choice to pilot a virus-sized submersible through the bloodstream by
virtual reality. But can the human mind exist in two realities at one time?
(First published in Canadian Tales of the Fantastic, Red Tuque Books, 2011.)

    At last, a single volume that gathers together all of the short stories featuring Agatha Christie's most famous creation, Hercule Poirot. The dapper, mustache-twirling little Belgian with the egg-shaped head and curious mannerisms has solved some of the most puzzling crimes of the century—and, in his own humble opinion, is "probably the greatest detective in the world." 
    In this complete collection of more than 50 stories, ranging from short tales to novellas, Poirot faces violent murders, poisonings, kidnappings, and thefts—all solved with his characteristic panache. Only Agatha Christie could have devised cases worthy of Hercule Poirot's skill and "little gray cells."

    For more than sixty years, the imagination of Ray Bradbury has opened doors into remarkable places, ushering us across unexplored territories of the heart and mind while leading us inexorably toward a profound understanding of ourselves and the universe we inhabit. In this landmark volume, America's preeminent storyteller offers us one hundred treasures from alifetime of words and ideas -- tales that amaze, enthrall, and horrify; breathtaking journeys backward and forward in time; classic stories with the undiminished power to tantalize, mystify, elate, and move the reader to tears. Each small gem in the master's collection remains as dazzling as when it first appeared in print. 
    There is magic in these pages: the wonders of interstellar flight, a conspiracy of insects, the early bloom of love in the warmth of August. Both the world of Ray Bradbury and its people are vivid and alive, as colorfully unique as a poker chip hand-painted by a brilliant artist or as warmly familiar as the well-used settings on a family's dining room table. In a poor man's desire for the stars, in the twisted night games of a hateful embalmer, in a magnificent fraud perpetrated to banish despair and repair a future, in a writer's wonderful death is the glowing proof of the timeless artistry of one of America's greatest living bards. 
    The one hundred stories in this volume were chosen by Bradbury himself, and span a career that blossomed in the pulp magazines of the early 1940s and continues to flourish in the new millennium. Here are representatives of the legendary author's finest works of short fiction, including many that have not been republished for decades, all forever fresh and vital, evocative and immensely entertaining. This is Bradbury at his very best -- golden visions of tomorrow, poetic memories of yesterday, dark nightmares and glorious dreams -- a grand celebration of humankind, God's intricate yet poignantly fallible machineries of joy.
