A IS FOR ALIEN is award-winning author Caitlín R. Kiernan’s first collection devoted entirely to her science-fiction work. It includes the critically acclaimed novelette ‘Riding the White Bull’ (chosen for THE YEAR’S BEST SCIENCE FICTION #22), along with seven other tales of a less-than-utopian future. Ranging from the wastelands and mountains of Mars to the streets of a late 21st-Century Manhattan, from the moons of Europa and Saturn to an iceless Antarctica, these tales bring Kiernan’s trademark brand of the eco-gothic to bear on what it means to be human and the paths and decisions that may face mankind only a little farther along.

Two time winner of both the World Fantasy Award and the Bram Stoker Award, Caitlín R. Kiernan was recently described by the New York Times as “one of our essential writers of dark fiction” and S. T. Joshi has declared “…hers is now the voice of weird fiction.” Her twelve novels include The Red Tree (nominated for the Shirley Jackson and World Fantasy awards) and The Drowning Girl: A Memoir (winner of the James Tiptree, Jr. and Bram Stoker awards, nominated for the Nebula, Wold Fantasy, British Fantasy, Mythopoeic, Locus, and Shirley Jackson awards). To date, her critically acclaimed short fiction has been collected in thirteen volumes, including Tales of Pain and Wonder, A is for Alien, The Ammonite Violin & Others, Confessions of a Five-Chambered Heart, Two Worlds and In Between: The Best of Caitlín R. Kiernan (Volume One), and, most recently, The Ape’s Wife and Other Stories. Currently, she’s writing the graphic novel series Alabaster for Dark Horse Comics. She lives in Providence, Rhode Island.
