Fear and wonder, a powerful combination.

Terry Dowling is one of the best kept secrets in modern science fiction, fantasy and horror, a storyteller that Grand Master Jack Vance in his introduction calls, “A very talented writer, one I admire and respect.”

Now, for the first time, Amberjack: Tales of Fear & Wonder gives us the best of Terry’s recent uncollected work in a single wonderful volume. From invasion by the truly alien in “The Lagan Fishers”, “Truth Window” and “Flashmen” to the gut-wrenching horror of “Toother” and “The Suits at Auderlene”, from the day-after-tomorrow, hardline SF of “He Tried to Catch the Light” to the epic sweep and swashbuckling adventure of “The Library”, this is imaginative storytelling as it should be: provocative, unsettling, beautifully crafted, full of invention and genuine surprise and, yes, a definite touch of the dark side.
