Selected Stories

Stories of space, love, loss, hope, and more are all part of this debut collection from multiple award-nominated author Jake Kerr.

Featuring the best-selling novelette “The Old Equations,” these stories range from contemporary tales of innocence ("Looking For Bad Guys") to the apocalyptic story that launched Kerr’s three linked stories in The Apocalypse Triptych ("Biographical Fragments of the Life of Julian Prince.”

A mixture of breathtaking science fiction and contemporary shorts, Selected Stories highlights Kerr’s position a leading practitioner in science fiction’s humanist tradition.
