Outside magazine on Jim Shepard’s A WORLD TO COME

“…no one is better at inhabiting a voice…”

“nearly flawless”

“There’s no topic he can’t handle, and each story in The World to Come is its own sort of joy to read…”

And perhaps my favorite: “There’s nothing more present than death in Jim Shepard’s latest collection of short stories.”
