Northwest PassagesBook - 2009
"Be careful what you wish for. Young men in search of adventure...explorers driven to investigate the ends of the earth...a girl trying to find the perfect hiding place...a curiosity-seeker drawn to an abandoned amusement park. All of them are looking for something--and unfortunately, they usually find it. For the very unlucky, it sometimes finds them! In these ten spellbinding stories by World Fantasy Award winner Barbara Roden, very little is as innocent as it seems; but much is haunting, enigmatic, and terrifying. Where the Twilight Zone ends, the Northwest Passages begin. Publishers Weekly has described the work of two-time World Fantasy Award winner Barbara Roden as 'eloquent' and 'a standout.' Her stories--many of them inspired by some of the world's less travelled corners--have appeared in a number of anthologies, including Year's best fantasy and horror. [...] Northwest passages is her first collection"--p. [2-3] of jacket.
