Michael Shea has graced the field of the fantastic for more than thirty years and it’s time we celebrated him. His prose is as rich and inventive as his considerable imagination, and the range of his tales is enviable, from sardonic, witty, fantasy to monstrous horror. The AUTOPSY AND OTHER TALES is a feast of deliciously literate fantasy and terror, and a book that should be on the shelves of every reader who cares for either field. Shea enriches both.
