Praise for Derryl Murphy "Plunk us both down in the same imaginary world and [Murphy will] be wandering its outback like a native while I'm still standing in the bus station, face scrunched up over the tourist map, trying to make sense of the grid references." --Peter Watts, author of Blindsight "In Murphy's version of reality, magic is in the numbers, and the details. Present-day action spins out in surprising directions, touching on history, poetry, mathematics, and myth. I was reminded of Tim Powers at times, but this is Powers on speed, weird, wonderful, and fast. Stock up on snacks: you'll be reading this book in a single sitting." --Holly Phillips, author of The Engine's Child "Derryl Murphy is one cool writer: smart as a whip, funny, insightful, and always engaging. He's a master storyteller and a brilliant stylist." --Robert J. Sawyer, author of The WWW Trilogy

Derryl Murphy's stories have appeared in a variety of magazines and anthologies over the years. He is also the author of the ecological science fiction collection Wasps at the Speed of Sound and, with co-author William Shunn, of the ghost story Cast a Cold Eye. He has been nominated three times for Canada's Aurora Award, and anticipates that someday he'll be nominated and lose again. He lives on the Canadian Prairies with his wife, two sons, and dog, and vaguely remembers the day when he thought this whole writing thing would be glamourous.
