Multi-award winning author.

"Doug Smith is, quite simply, the finest short-story writer Canada has ever produced in the science fiction and fantasy genres, and he's also the most prolific. His stories are a treasure trove of riches that will touch your heart while making you think."
—Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids and FlashForward

"A great storyteller with a gifted and individual voice."
—Charles de Lint

"One of Canada's most original writers of speculative fiction."
—Library Journal

DESCRIPTION:
Mary and her teenage son, Jase, survive by their own wits in a post-plague Earth. On the run from a vicious gang, they are saved by Bishop, a man with mysterious powers who just may be the Dead Man, the legendary hero of the Fall of Earth. But Bishop’s dark past catches up with them all, forcing Bishop to choose between his love for Mary and Jase, or revenge against the men who killed his family.

REVIEWS:
"All that you want in a sf short story is here from powerful characters, to action, mysterious happenings, and a dark, violent, but excellent tale. … A bittersweet ending adds to the power of the story. (A++)"
—Fantasy Book Critic

"Shows off Smith's flair for the cinematic. ... Smith plans to write a novel about the Dead Man...I do look forward to reading it."
—Strange Horizons

"Memories of the Dead Man," has echoes of Stephen King wandering about its post-apocalyptic narrative."
—Quill and Quire

"...a wonderful example of the places this author is unafraid to go."
—SF Crowsnest Reviews

"...would make a great movie...a unique, post-apocalyptic blend of The Road Warrior and X-Men. Bishop's powers are well thought-out and explained, and Mary is a sympathetic and effective narrator."
—Tangent Online

"The style and subtleties of the storytelling kept me firmly on the edge of my seat. ... The characters were what really impressed me, though--by a few lines into meeting each one you had a clear and definable presence in your mind.”
—SF Crowsnest Reviews
