Shadow Casting: The Best of Paul Kane - Paul Kane

"Paul Kane is a first rate storyteller, never failing to marry his insights into the world and its anguish with the pleasures of phrases eloquently turned." — Clive Barker, bestselling author of The Hellbound Heart, Mister B. Gone and The Scarlet Gospels

One man's dangerous addiction leads to a glimpse of another world, while another seeks total mastery over his own bodily functions. As two immortal godlike creatures in charge of balancing all of existence come to a crossroads with their relationship, another person has to face the fact that he only has a short amount of time left to live. And while a sleepy English village hides one terrifying secret, the mystery of a famous horror writer's success turns out to be the result of another... Including the award-winning 'A Chaos Demon is for Life', 'Dead Time' — which was turned into an episode of the NBC/Lionsgate primetime series Fear Itself — and 'Rag and Bone', selected for The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror, this collection gathers together some of Paul Kane's best fiction and celebrates his twenty years as a professional writer. With an introduction by the bestselling author of Furnace and The Ancient, Muriel Gray, and stunning cover art from the award-winning Vincent Chong, this is a very special commemorative book that no collector or genre fan will want to be without.
