More Short Fiction from OMNI

Omni magazine is known for the variety and depth of its fiction, and this second anthology of reprints continues the tradition.

All the stories in Omni Visions Two were originally published by Omni magazine between 1985 and 1988. They range from the weird, almost mainstream stories of Carol Emshwiller and Kate Wilhelm through the fantasies of Greg Bear and Howard Waldrop to the science fiction of Rober Silverberg and Richard Kadrey. Among the 13 selections are the Hugo Award-winning novelette "Permafrost" by Roger Zelany and Lucius Shepard's poetic gem "Pictures Made of Stones." In addition, Howard Waldrop combines a coming-of-age story with a Shakespearean revenge play and his vision of an alternative Africa.

Here's what the critics said about Omni Visions One:

"...Another fine collection" - SF Chronicle

"A good debut" - True Review

"This...varied assortment of ten stories will be welcome by SF fans..." - Publisher Weekly

"...Datlow provides a balanced selection of imaginative pieces from writers both inside and outside the genre...all bear the Omni trademark for extending the boundaries of science fiction into high art." - Booklist

Ellen Datlow is the fiction editor of Omni magazine. She is also the series editor for the best-selling Omni Best Science Fiction and the co-editor of the World Fantasy Award-winning series The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror.
