Jurassic and the Great Tree by Keith Brooke ($0.99/£0.86)
infinity plus singles #11 [Dec 2011]
We come to Pavonis Minor, invited by the Burul’chasi, descendants of the first wave of human settlement. They have successfully resisted intrusion into their territories for many years, yet now they want someone to come, now they want someone to see. “Only one man,” they said, through their intermediary. “Only one man may come.” And so we three are here, riding in the body of one. Which is all very well until the three begin to disagree… “‘Jurassic and the Great Tree’, with its brilliant and remorseless anthropological logic, resembles Michael Bishop at his best. But that’s because it’s well-argued anthropology, rather than well-copied Bishop” (Simon Ings)
The Euonymist by Neil Williamson ($0.99/£0.86)
infinity plus singles #12 [Dec 2011]
In a future where naming is vital and the labelling of a new species can have major ramifications, what hope is there for an ancient tongue that is effectively linguistically dead? “A rich and rewarding read from a stylish new Scottish talent” (World Fantasy Award-winner Jeff VanderMeer).
The Sculptor by Garry Kilworth ($0.99/£0.86)
infinity plus singles #13 [Dec 2011]
An artist pays tribute to a cruel and powerful leader. Cunning and elegant short fiction from an author whose “Sumi Dreams of a Paper Frog” was described by JG Ballard as “The best short story I have read for many years” and who has been described by New Scientist as “the best short story writer in any genre”. This story was winner of the Interzone readers’ poll for best story of the year.
Lizard Lust by Lisa Tuttle ($0.99/£0.86)
infinity plus singles #14 [Dec 2011]
“They say that the sight of a lizard drives a woman wild with desire. Any woman, any lizard, the merest glimpse. But lizards belong to men; they’re death to women.” An ordinary woman is torn from her normal life and thrust into a weird alternate reality where the power to structure human relationships, and even to travel between worlds, resides in the living bodies of small green lizards. “Tuttle creates out of a genuinely strange imagination.” (Josephine Saxton in The New Statesman) “Simply one of the very best writers in the field” (Science Fiction and Fantasy Review)
Valley of the Sugars of Salt by Anna Tambour ($0.99/£0.86)

Moving and surprising fiction from an author described by World Fantasy Award-winner Jeff VanderMeer as “Rapacious, intelligent and witty”.
