The Oxford Illustrated EncycloPreydia
(Click for large version)
The Oxford Illustrated EncycloPreydia is the comprehensive who's who and what's what of the wonderful works of author John Sandford. Everything is covered in this volume, from Lucas Davenport's early days at the Minneapolis Police Department, to the hacking techniques used by the computer criminal Kidd. Definitive character biographies, behind-the-scenes views, reconstructed timelines it's all here, cross-referenced and indexed for easy access.
But it's not just a simple directory. This work also includes essays from today's top writers, from Stephen King and Greg Egan, to Alice Munro and George R.R. Martin, covering every aspect of the Prey universe. Bask in George Takei's fabulous deconstruction of the Mind Prey TV movie debacle, pick sides in the point / counterpoint argument over denormalization of traditional gender roles in modern fiction as argued by Barbra Kingsolver and Richard Dawkins. And finally learn the truth about Del's unusual name in Chuck Palahniuk's never-before-seen short story, The Curious Case of the Pinking Shears.
Whether a casual reader or a true Prey aficionado, this book has something for everyone. And it's all edited by John Sandford himself. Truly, a gift for any reader.
