The Norton Book of American Short Stories

by Peter S. Prescott

The Norton Book of American Short Stories embraces many of the most famous examples of the genre from "Young Goodman Brown" to "The Lottery," and it also includes lesser-known stories of equal merit by many famous authors: Irving's "The Devil and Tom Walker," Faulkner's "Wash," and Edith Wharton's masterly ghost story, "Pomegranate Seed."

The Norton Book of Ghost Stories

by Brad Leithauser

This spellbinding book will delight as it terrifies. Brad Leithauser, the noted poet and novelist, had excellence as his only criterion in assembling this collection of twenty-eight of the eeriest short stories in the English language. Included are the most intriguing works by the writers who have defined the genre over the years--Henry James, Oliver Onions, and M. R. James--as well as stories by other authors whose forays into the supernatural are less well known: V S. Pritchett, Muriel Spark, John Cheever, A. S. Byatt, Elizabeth Taylor, and Philip Graham among others. This surprising gathering of writers makes this collection a must-have for confirmed ghost-story fans as well as for those who simply love good writing. Brad Leithausers introduction redefines the genre, finding its origins in our fascination with the world beyond our senses. Whatever the stories' similarities, however, each creates its own unique atmosphere of uncanniness that is as hard to analyze as it is to resist. After all, it is "in their restless u ease, their dissatisfaction with the prova! as Leithauser writes, that the ghost storie bewitching power lies.

The Norton Book of Science Fiction

by Ursula K. Le Guin Brian Attebery

From the book jacket: In the tradition of other groundbreaking Norton anthologies, Ursula K. Le Guin and Brian Attebery's Norton Book of Science Fiction provides the first truly comprehensive and coherent look at the best of contemporary science fiction. Its 67 stories, all published since 1960, offer compelling evidence that science fiction is the source of the most thoughtful, imaginative-indeed, literary- fiction being written today. Aficionados will find rarely anthologized gems by their favorite authors-Poul Anderson, Margaret Atwood, Octavia Butler, Samuel R. Delany, Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Joanna Russ, Theodore Sturgeon, James Tiptree, Jr., Gene Wolfe, Roger Zelazny-as well as startling work by today's rising stars. Newcomers will delight in the sophisticated range of voices probing the nature of reality and the condition of the human spirit. And readers of all stripes will enjoy Ms. Le Guin's robust and insightful introduction. As the new millennium approaches we look to our great writers to provide the bridge between past and present, between what is today and what will be in the future. Those writers are these. Their stories-and thus this anthology-will be a source of exhilaration and illumination for years to come.

The Norton Field Guide to Writing

by Richard Bullock

From the preface: I began work on The Norton Field Guide to Writing with three goals in mind: (1) to offer the kind of writing guides found in the best rhetorics, (2) to make the book as user-friendly as the most popular handbooks, and (3) to keep it brief. If I've gotten it right, this book will be a handy guide that will help college students with all their written work. Just as there are field guides for bird watchers, for gardeners, and for accountants, this will be one for writers.
