Summary
This is the final and definitive short story collection of award-winning SF author Jay Lake, author of Green, Endurance, and Kalimpura. Long before he was a novelist, SF writer Jay Lake, was an acclaimed writer of short stories. In Last Plane to Heaven, Lake has assembled thirty-two of the best of them. Aliens and angels fill these pages, from the title story, a hard-edged and breathtaking look at how a real alien visitor might be received, to the savage truth of "The Cancer Catechisms." Here are more than thirty short stories written by a master of the form, science fiction and fantasy both. This collection features an original introduction by Gene Wolfe
