Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0961035250, Hardcover)Collected for the first time anywhere, here are the short stories of detective John J. Mallory, from Resnick's STALKING THE UNICORN, STALKING THE VAMPIRE and STALKING THE DRAGON. Mallory is a hard-boiled detective from our world, unhappily stranded in a Manhattan filled with trolls, pink elephants, a blue-nosed reindeer, powerful demons and more.
The stories are witty fast-paced urban fantasies with dialogue seemligly drawn from 1930s film comedies. Connie Willis writes in her preface: STALKING THE ZOMBIE is the fun, funny, tall-tale telling Mike at his cutting-loose best. It's inventive, satiric, fast-paced, a roller-coaster ride of a book. And you're going to have a whale--oops, pink elephant---of a time reading it!
Eight short mysteries, the title story being original to this collection. Cover by Spectrum Artist Douglas Klauba. And all-new introduction by Mike Resnick explaining where the character came from and detailing Mallory's history. A preface by Connie Willis. This is collection is a treat for John J. Mallory fans.
