What to expect

In his Locus review of Two Worlds and In Between—the first volume of The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan—Gary K. Wolfe wrote, “…it makes you wish the second volume were here now.”

Well, the long wait is over.

Beneath an Oil-Dark Sea: The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan Volume Two completes this ambitious undertaking, collecting the finest of Kiernan’s stories from 2004 to 2012, selected by the author herself. The book includes twenty-five short stories and one poem, plus the short novel Black Helicopters—over two hundred thousand words of fiction, including the World Fantasy Award–winning “The Prayer of Ninety Cats.”
