Short Fiction

R. A. Lafferty

Description

Though often packed into the genre of science fiction, R. A. Lafferty might fit better into a category of the bizzare. Through a blend of folk storytelling, American tall tales, science fiction, and fantasy, all infused with his devout Catholicism, he has created an inimitable, genre-bending, sui generis style.

Lafferty has received many Hugo and Nebula Award nominations and won the Best Short Story Hugo in 1973.

Collected here are all of his public domain short stories, all of which were originally published in science fiction pulp magazines in the 1960s.
