Princes and prelates courted him; emperors called him friend and teacher.

Conscientious Inconsistencies

Conscientious Inconsistencies by Nancy Jane Moore

A Collection of Short Fiction
by Nancy Jane Moore
$4.99 (Collection) ISBN 978-1-61138-258-7

“Break all rules, including these.”

So advises one of the stories in this reprint collection. These stories jump — conscientiously — from a homage to Alexandre Dumas to an action-packed adventure set in the near future. There’s also an epic fantasy or space opera — take your pick — told in aphorisms, a contemplation on death, and a tale of what happens when walls begin to divide a place. As Lyndon Perry wrote of the now-out-of print PS Publishing hardcover edition, “Moore’s style rises above a particular perspective and stands on its own as quality short fiction.”
