Publishers Weekly, 2009-07-27 Those familiar with five-time Hugo winner Resnick only from his recent comic PI novels (Stalking the Vampire, etc.) will be delighted by this collection of short fiction demonstrating his versatility. "The Lord of the Jungle" features a would-be Tarzan who takes refuge in Africa to evade creditors and build a Communist gorilla nation. "Two Hunters in Manhattan" pits New York City Police Commissioner Teddy Roosevelt against Dracula. The standout stories share the theme of a hunter's obsessive quest for mysterious prey: in "Hunting the Snark," a guide tracks a powerful predator that's been consuming members of his expedition, while the short but powerful "The Soul Eater" follows a galactic hunter's Ahab-like pursuit of a giant energy being. Resnick packs a wide variety of genre tales full of surprising twists and turns. (Sept.) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
