To win his freedom, a slave becomes a gladiator Rafe is well over six feet of muscle, with a warrior’s body marred by only one scar. Long ago, this slave’s owner promised him that if he won fifty fights in the pit—fights to the death against men of all colors—he would be granted his freedom. In his first fight, Rafe slipped, and his opponent cut his side. The pain showed him his true purpose. Since then, he has never lost a fight, and he has never again been cut. Rafe has only eight fights left before he can claim his reward, but Ezra Clayton is not certain he wants to free the greatest gladiator the South has ever known. As the deadline draws near and the blood continues to flow, Rafe knows that if his freedom is denied, he will have to take it, as he has taken so many lives: with his two bare hands.

Fourteen stories - including "Radiant Green Star", winner of the 2001 Locus Award for Best Novella - make up this classic collection.

Futuristic war, menacing wind spirits, parallel worlds, a six-thousand-foot dragon: this collection proves that Shepard is neither genre fantasist not strict realist, but one of the most intriguing writers we have today.

When millionaire ad executive Rich Larson flees New York for the Catskills, he seeks the kind of happiness derived from a rod, reel, and a bucket of worms. But after he assumes a new identity as Johnny Paycash, a singer-songwriter who regularly performs at the Hooten Holler Taproom, he is inexplicably framed as a drug-dealing terrorist by a crooked, cross-dressing cop. After his fingerprints are found on a bag of cocaine, Johnny is arrested, thrown in the slammer, and forced to rely on Fat Schanz, his gambling-addicted ex-convict lawyer, to bail him out. If not for his girlfriend, Sugarfoot, a vivacious farm girl who sings like an angel and shoots like Annie Oakley, Johnny might go insane the exact defense his lawyer is planning on his behalf. As Johnny stands in court in front of Judge Perkins, he receives raucous support from the unruly regulars of the Hooten Holler Taproom including Big Al, a house painter who looks like Elvis, and Tommy Dick, a womanizing honky-tonk piano man. As mayhem surrounds the trial, a mysterious ghostwriting gossip columnist chronicles the adventures and leads the entire oddball group to a surprise unveiling of the truth about a kidnapping, a murder, and quite possibly a miracle.

When Janine, Aiden Fesyo's long-term girlfriend, announces she's earned a promotion and is leaving, she also informs him that he has a four-year-old child out there somewhere. Janine vows the child will never be found. Aiden believes otherwise. In his search, he encounters people linked to members of the latest team on the "HorrorShow," a 3D sorreality contest where contestants pass through nine circuses on California Island to win a trillion-dollar prize. The team consists of a spangled banner of races and troubled pasts, assembled by the government to stave off bankruptcy. There's a gay Hispanic gymnast whose lover died of retroviral plague; a Native American stunt coordinator whose cowardice caused a catastrophe; an Aborigine swimmer obsessed with her brother's death; a genetically engineered "fiteball" player caught in a point-shaving scandal; a Bosnian movie star who strangled a starlet; a Japanese American prostitute and assassin; and an African American "bizzyball" player, dreaming of the child she aborted. The team contends with hot-headed centaurs, homunculi bikers, mutant hairdressers, clumsy ninjas, talk show hosts in army tanks, and distortion fields that carry them through space and time. Aiden and the team unite in a climactic encounter with a triple-bodied Satan, who explains why God is playing a game with the universe.
