In the title novella, Cotman imagines a group of near-immortals living in Pittsburgh in an uneasy truce with Lord Decay. Their truce is threatened when one of them takes pity on a young woman who knows their secret. In "Among the Zoologists," a game writer on their way to a convention falls in with a group of rogue Darwinists whose baggage contains a great mystery. A volleyball tournament devolves into nightmare and chaos in "Mine." In Cotman's hands, the conventions of genresfrom fairytales to Victorian literature to epic fantasy and horror give shape to marvelously new stories.
