  • Avec les nouvelles de : George R. R. Martin, Robert Silverberg, Glen Cook, Walter Jon Williams, Byron Tetrick, Terry Dowling et Jeff VanderMeer.
    Préfaces de Jack Vance et de Dean Koontz.
    À l'autre bout du temps, un soleil rouge et obèse jette sur la Terre mourante sa lumière de fin du monde. Ceux qui arpentent cette terre agonisante sont les derniers héros de l'humanité. Ils s'appellent Cugel ou Rhialto, T'saïs ou Pandelume, ils sont mages ou voleurs, bretteurs ou escrocs, mais ils sont toujours flamboyants, car ils sont nés il y a de cela soixante ans, sous la plume de Jack Vance. Maître de la narration, créateur de mondes et styliste unique, Jack Vance est probablement l'auteur qui a suscité le plus de vocations.
    Des générations entières d'écrivains ont voulu marcher sur ses traces et devenir, à leur tour, des marchands de rêves. George R. R. Martin et Gardner Dozois ont réuni les plus grands noms des littératures de l'imaginaire - Glen Cook, Robert Silverberg, Jeff VanderMeer ou Walter Jon Williams - pour saluer, comme il se devait, Maître Jack Vance et son cycle de La Terre mourante.

  • It should have been a simple job. But for Garrett, a human detective in a world of gnomes, tracking down the woman to whom his dead pal Danny left a fortune in silver is no slight task. Even with the aid of Morley, the toughest half-elf around, Garrett isn't sure he'll make it out alive from a land where magic can be murder, the dead still talk, and vampires are always hungry for human blood.

    A series far ahead of its time, now back in print
    Anyone else would have learned by now: when trouble comes knocking, don't open the door. But there's a reason why Garrett's still in the P.I. business after all these years-he's not one to learn his lessons. Maybe that's why he lets himself get roped into being a bodyguard for Kip Prose, an obnoxious kid being threatened by creatures that can't quite be described. But before Kip Prose has a chance to explain what he's done to get on the hit list of some nameless nasties, the precocious Prose is abducted, and the chase begins...
