Here, with his first-ever collection of stories, he proves he's equally adept at shorter lengths. The tales gathered in Iterations have been nominated for the Hugo and Bram Stoker Awards, and have won the Aurora Award the Crime Writers of Canada's Arthur Ellis Award, and France's top SF award, Le Grand Prix de l'Imaginaire.
