The Boarder


With the delicate touch and deep sympathies of Ray Bradbury, Karen Joy Fowler or Jeff Ford, Alex Jablokov guides us through the remembered days of the 1960s when a teen boy and his family played host to an enigmatic and eccentric Russian exile named Vassily, whose spaceship-building past was full of hidden truths and treasures.

The Paul Di Filippo Presents series showcases modern masterpieces of science fiction and fantasy selected by acclaimed author and critic Paul Di Filippo.
