Tim Pratt’s (Little Gods, The Strange Adventures of Rangergirl) Hart & Boot is a stunning collection of thirteen stories of the fantastic. Critics have called Pratt’s short fiction “Quite Gaimanesque…” and this comparison is not unfounded. His straightforward storytelling techniques, combined with an uncanny ability to convey a sense of wonder and the fantastic, are part of the reason why the title story to this collection was selected by Michael Chabon for inclusion in The Best American Short Stories 2005 anthology.

Tim Pratt has been nominated for the Nebula, the John W. Campbell, and the Mythopoeic Fantasy awards, and his work (including “Bottom Feeding,” herein) routinely finds its way to the Locus Recommended Reading lists. In 2005, he won the Norton Award. His fiction has appeared in numerous anthologies and magazines, including Polyphony, The Year’s Best Fantasy and Horror, Lenox Avenue, The Third Alternative, and Realms of Fantasy.

“...sharp writing, cool characters, fascinating ideas, and the courage to have fun.”
— Jeffrey Ford, author of The Girl in the Glass

“Pratt... writes with the assured prose of a seasoned pro, creating one of the more likable casts of characters it’s been my pleasure to encounter. But what really has my admiration is his ability to balance perfectly the various elements of lightheartedness and melodrama, and make it all unfold in a manner that’s seamlessly believable.”
— Charles de Lint, author of Widdershins and Blue Girl

“Tim Pratt demonstrates his range and charm in this collection.”
— Elizabeth Bear, author of Blood and Iron, and Carnival
