They Do the Same Things Different There

by Robert Shearman
Release date: September 10, 2014
Type: speculative fiction
Genres: fantasy, horror, short stories
Tags: new weird

World Fantasy Award nominee 2015, Shirley Jackson Award nominee 2014.

Robert Shearman visits worlds that are unsettling and strange. Sometimes they are just like ours — except landlocked countries may disappear overnight, marriages to camels are the norm, and the dead turn into musical instruments. Sometimes they are quite alien — where children carve their own tongues from trees, and magic shows are performed to amuse the troops in the war between demons and angels. There is horror, and dreams fulfilled and squandered, of true love. They do the same things different there.

Robert Shearman has written four previous collections of short stories, and they have collectively won the World Fantasy Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and three British Fantasy Awards. He is probably best known as a writer on the BBC TV series Doctor Who, and his work on the show gave him a Hugo Award nomination. His last book, Remember Why You Fear Me, is also published by ChiZine Publications.
