"The World Fantasy Award-winning collection from the architect of the Well-Built City Trilogy No matter how far into the realms of space and fantasy Jeffrey Ford's stories may venture, they have one trait in common: They're grounded in the universal. " The Fantasy Writer's Assistant, Ford's debut collection, is no exception. "Creation," which received the World Fantasy Award for Best Short Story, relates a boy's attempts to animate a man made of sticks and pebbles. Even as the creature's life fades along with the summer, its loneliness and yearning for contact are palpable. Other blends of the worldly and otherworldly are evident in "Bright Morning," in which a man searches far and wide for a cursed Kafka book, and "At Reparata," when the grief of a king over the death of his queen takes the form of a destructive moth that could overtake the entire kingdom. " The Fantasy Writer's Assistant " reveals Jeffrey Ford at his creative best.".
