When the young members of a British acid-folk band are compelled by their manager to record their unique music, they hole up at Wylding Hall, an ancient country house with dark secrets. There they create the album that will make their reputation, but at a terrifying cost: Julian Blake, the group’s lead singer, disappears within the mansion and is never seen or heard from again.
Now, years later, the surviving musicians, along with their friends and lovers—including a psychic, a photographer, and the band’s manager—meet with a young documentary filmmaker to tell their own versions of what happened that summer. But whose story is true? And what really happened to Julian Blake?
Stories, edited by bestselling authors Neil Gaiman (author of The Ocean at the End of the Lane and the epic American Gods) and Al Sarrantonio, is 'an unmissable collection' (Guardian), filled with distinctive, original and thrilling tales from writers such a Jodi Picoult, Lawrence Block, Roddy Doyle and many more.
Rather than being dictated by genre, for co-editors Gaiman and Sarrantonio there is only one true distinction in fiction: the one dividing realistic and imaginative fiction. STORIES is a collection of the very best original fiction from some of the most imaginative writers in the world, as well as a showcase for some of fiction's newer stars.
One hell of a huge book of great, exciting stories which will become a uniting force for readers of all forms of imaginative fiction.

Christian singer Trip Marlowe has found worldwide success, but the dynamic rock star retains his strict morality and faith. Temptation comes in the form of a mysterious blond waif and IZE, a new drug more addictive than crack and heroin . . .
The two men will find themselves on a bizarre collision course as a dark and powerful force seeks to shape what’s left of humanity’s consciousness.
“A brutal vision of Apocalypse . . . Hand’s powerful vision of these days of wrath is not so much a protracted self-pitying whisper as a Nietzschean insistence on salvation through creative evolution.” —Publishers Weekly, starred review
“[A] wild, psychedelic, thoughtful thriller . . . Another dynamite read!” —The Des Moines Register
