Wild Things by C. C. Finlay
I first met Charlie (virtually) when he became the editor of The Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction in January, 2015. When I began choosing titles for The Story Collection Storybundle, I wondered if this short story expert had a collection of his own. No surprise—of course he does! And we’re in luck because Charlie specially prepared the ebook of his fine hardcover collection, Wild Things, for Storybundle. Fasten your seatbelt—you’re about to travel from a high fantasy King Arthur tale, to mining asteroids in deep space, to the American Revolutionary War, and much more in The Story Collection Storybundle.
C.C. Finlay is the author of half a dozen books and dozens of stories. His stories have been republished in numerous Year’s Best reprints, nominated for the Hugo, Nebula, Sturgeon, and other awards, and translated into sixteen languages. He’s the ninth editor of the eminent Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction. Finlay has also taught at Clarion, Clarion YA, Alpha Writers, and Odyssey Online Writing Classes. He’s the resident editor for the Online Writing Workshops.
Here’s what the critics have to say about C. C. Finlay’s Wild Things:
“[T]hese stories show Finlay exploring a variety of genres, bringing freshness and intelligence to them all… an absorbing and often surprising collection.” – Booklist
“Finlay shows himself to be a versatile writer of imaginative fiction in his first story collection… these 14 tales display an insightful knowledge of human nature.” –Publishers Weekly
“Finlay displays an astonishing range, an active imagination and a developing assurance and control: a writer to watch.” – Kirkus
“Finlay’s stories will endure.” – Ideomancer
