The Devil Delivered and Other Tales - Steven Erikson
Three wonderfully unique novelettes from the man behind the groundbreaking New York Times bestselling series Malazan Book of the Fallen

In between writing his ten-book epic that changed the way many look at fantasy storytelling, Steven Erikson also wrote great stories set outside of his awe-inspiring Malazan world. These three tales contain all the same style and flavor that made him a New York Times bestseller.

This collection includes:

The Devil Delivered: In the breakaway Lakota Nation, in the heart of a land blistered beneath an ozone hole the size of the Great Plains of North America, a lone anthropologist wanders the deadlands, recording observations that threaten to bring the world’s powers to their knees.

Revolvo: In the fictitious country of Canada, the arts scene is ruled by technocrats who thrive in a secret, nepotistic society of granting agencies, bursaries, and peer review boards, all designed to permit self-proclaimed artists to survive without an audience.

Fishing with Grandma Matchie: A children’s story of a boy tasked with a writing assignment becomes a stunning fantastical journey with his tale-spinning grandmother.

This collection contains three short stories, The Devil Delivered, Revolvo and Fishing with Grandma Matchie. All of them are super weird, absurd and crazy. I'm not even sure what I read most of the time...
