Jim Grimsley's novels and short stories have been favorably compared to the works of Samuel R. Delany, Jack Vance, and Ursula K. Le Guin. Now he unleashes and ambitious and audacious collision between science and magic. The Twil Gate links two very different realms. On one side of the portal is Senal, an advanced technological civilization of some thiry billion inhabitants, all cybernetically linked and at war with machine intelligences many light-years away. On the other side is Irion, a land of myth and legend, where the world is flat and mighty wizards once ruled. Jedda Martele is a linguist and trader from Senal.Although fascinated by the languages and cultures of Irion, she shares her people's asssumption that Irion is backward and superstitious and no match for her homeland's superior numbers and technology. But as the two realms march inevitably toward war, Jedda finds herself at the center of historic, unimaginable events that will challenge everything she has ever believed about the world--and herself. The Ordinary is a powerful and entrancing tale of magic, science, and the mysterious truth that binds them together.

Jesus is sending you this message : (stories) by Jim Grimsley ( Book )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 145 libraries worldwide
"An expedition into the complex nature of human existence, Jim Grimsley's elegant and dexterous stories slowly, with a powerful voice, take an iron grip on his readers and offer an authentic vision of a stark, and oftening unforgiving, world. Grimsley explores the dark edges and limitations of the human soul in this collection: a bachelor believes Jesus is sending him a message on his commuter train; an oil tycoon finds the meaning of life in a wayward jet; a young southern woman hopes to find a larger purpose to life before it's too late. Grimsley's fondness for fantasy and sci-fi elements, such as human cloning, often show up in his stories, lending his writing another layer of the fantastical."--P.  of cover.
