Fiction River: Risk Takers

Dean Wesley Smith

Money, business, sports, love: All involve risk-and skill. The skilled authors in this volume masterfully exhibit both. Buckle in while a locomotive engineer uses magic in a race to avoid extinction, a game developer must outmaneuver an alien for Earth's fate, and an exterminator risks everything to go after some really big rats. Crossing genre lines through science fiction, fantasy, mystery, historical, and mainstream, these adrenaline-pumping stories about taking risks offer nothing but reward. "... fans of the unconventional will be well satisfied." -Publishers Weekly on Fiction River: Pulse Pounders "Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives is a great choice for anyone who loves it when genres are swirled together. It's nominally more heavily influenced by mystery conventions and tropes, but the science fiction and fantasy elements in it are almost as strong." -Long and Short Reviews on Fiction River: Fantastic Detectives

About the Author

Fiction River is an original anthology series. Initially, based on the anthology series of old-Universe, Orbit, Pulphouse-Fiction River rapidly evolved into its own entity. Fiction River publishes stories in many genres from all kinds of writers, with New York Times bestselling authors published alongside some of the best new voices in fiction. Fiction River also goes where no anthology series has gone before, with regular audio editions, produced in-house, and ebook and trade paperback volumes that never go out of print. And Fiction River is available in English worldwide.
