Publisher's Summary

In Concert collects the collaborative short fiction of Melanie Tem and Steve Rasnic Tem, who have worked at the cutting edge of imaginative fiction for over a quarter century. In the twenty-one tales herein, the reader will find fear, joy, and mystery. In Concert showcases the wide range of their collaborative work. The title story tells of a lonely elderly woman who achieves rapport with a lost astronaut through the power of music.
In "The Icy Region My Heart Encircles," an aging Mary Shelley, creator of Frankenstein, keeps the heart of her late husband on the mantel and is haunted by her dead children and the living incarnation of her Monster. And in "The Man on the Ceiling," the authors take turns telling of the fears and darkness common to all families, while reminding the reader that "everything I tell you is true." The publication of In Concert is an event well worth celebrating.

Terrific reading of fascinating stories

I would listen to Abby Elvidge read the phone book. She has one of the most incredible voices I have ever heard- pliable, playful, capturing her obvious intelligence in the line readings.

Her the match of that voice with fascinating, dark, sometimes sexy stories is perfect. I highly recommend it.
