Itsy Bitsy Spider

Itsy Bitsy Spider
Title: Itsy Bitsy Spider
Author:
Genre: fantasy, heroic
Annotation:This first major retrospective collects Kelly's finest short fiction from a 20-year career and includes a dazzling array of work, from hard science fiction and Twilight Zone-inspired fantasies to stark futuristic horror. The grim fable 'Pogrom' presents a near-futuristic scenario in which internecine warfare has broken out between the ageing boomer generation and a youthful dispossessed proletariat who must support them. The landmark novella 'Mr Boy' is the wildly inventive tale of a genetically stunted 12-year-old who literally lives inside his mother, who has turned herself into a three-quarter-scale model of the Statue of Liberty. 'The First Law of Thermodynamics' is a remarkable evocation of the psychedelic sixties -- the time of Vietnam, Kent State, and acid rock -- in which, like that era itself, nothing is what it appears to be. The now-famous title story, 'Think Like a Dinosaur', is a tale of a transporter beam maintained by aliens, through which humanity can visit the stars.
