Boys, beasts & men

Miller, Sam J. (author.). El-Mohtar, Amal, (writer of introduction.).

Summary: "Despite his ability to control the ambient digital cloud, a foster teen falls for a clever con man. Luring bullies to a quarry, a boy takes revenge through unnatural powers of suggestion. After an alien invasion, a survivor fears that he brought something infectious back from the Arctic.A rebellious group of queer artists create a new identity that transcends even the anonymity of death. In Shirley Jackson and Nebula Award-winning author Sam J. Miller's devastating debut short fiction collection, queer infatuation, inevitable heartbreak, and brutal revenge seemlessly intertwine. Miller shows his savage wit, unrelenting candor, and lush imagery in this essential career retrospective, taking his place alongside luminaries of the short fiction form such as Carmen Maria Machado, Carson McCullers, and Jeff VanderMeer." -- Back cover.
