9781501262036: Rip-Off!

Audie Award Finalist, Original Work, 2013

In Rip-Off!, 13 of today’s best and most honored writers of speculative fiction face a challenge even they would be hard-pressed to conceive: Pick your favorite opening line from a classic piece of fiction (or even non-fiction)—then use it as the first sentence of an entirely original short story.

In the world of Rip-Off!, "Call me Ishmael" introduces a tough-as-nails private eye—who carries a harpoon; The Wonderful Wizard of Oz inspires the tale of an aging female astronaut who’s being treated by a doctor named Dorothy Gale; and Huckleberry Finn leads to a wild ride with a foul-mouthed riverboat captain who plies the waters of Hell.

Once you listen to Rip-Off! you’ll agree: If Shakespeare or Dickens were alive today, they’d be ripping off the authors in this great collection.

The stories included in Rip-Off! are:

· "Fireborn" by Robert Charles Wilson
· "The Evening Line" by Mike Resnick
· "No Decent Patrimony" by Elizabeth Bear
· "The Big Whale" by Allen M. Steele
· "Begone" by Daryl Gregory
· "The Red Menace" by Lavie Tidhar
· "Muse of Fire" by John Scalzi
· "Writer’s Block" by Nancy Kress
· "Highland Reel" by Jack Campbell
· "Karin Coxswain or Death as She Is Truly Lived" by Paul Di Filippo
· "The Lady Astronaut of Mars" by Mary Robinette Kowal
· "Every Fuzzy Beast of the Earth, Every Pink Fowl of the Air" by Tad Williams
· "Declaration" by James Patrick Kelly

As a bonus, the authors introduce their stories, explaining what they ripped-off—and why.

Rip-Off! was produced in partnership with SFWA—Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America. Gardner Dozois served as project editor.

About the Author :

John Scalzi is one of the most popular and acclaimed SF authors to emerge in the last decade. His massively successful debut Old Man’s War won him science fiction’s John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer. His New York Times bestsellers include The Last Colony, Fuzzy Nation, and Redshirts; which won 2013’s Hugo Award for Best Novel. Material from his widely read blog The Whatever (whatever.scalzi.com) has also earned him two other Hugo Awards. He lives in Ohio with his wife and daughter.

“Jack Campbell” is the pen name of John G. Hemry, a retired naval officer who graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis before serving with the surface fleet and in a variety of other assignments. He is the author of The Lost Fleet series as well as the Stark’s War series and the Paul Sinclair series. His short fiction appears frequently in Analog magazine. He lives with his indomitable wife and three children in Maryland.

Tad Williams is a New York Times and London Sunday Times bestselling author of fantasy and science fiction, with novels translated into more than twenty languages and a global readership. He hosted a syndicated radio show for over a decade, co-created the first completely interactive television program, and is currently involved in film, television, comic books, computer games and other multimedia projects. He and his family live in California.

Robert Charles Wilson was born in California, but grew up near Toronto, Ontario. Apart from another short period in the early 1970s  spent in Whittier, California, he has lived most of his life in Canada, and in 2007 he became a Canadian citizen. He resided in Nanaimo, British Columbia, and breifly in Vancouver. Currently he lives with his wife Sharry in Concord, Ontario, just north of Toronto. He has two sons, Paul and Devon. His novel Spin won science fiction’s Hugo Award in 2006. Earlier, he won the Philip K. Dick Award for his debut novel A Hidden Place; Canada’s Aurora Award for Darwinia; and the John W. Campbell Award for The Chronoliths.



Allen Steele is a science fiction writer with nineteen novels and six collections of short fiction to his credit. His works have been translated worldwide and have received the Hugo, Locus, and Seiun awards, and have been nominated for the Nebula, Sturgeon, and Sidewise Awards. He is also a recipient of the the Robert A. Heinlein Award. His first published story, "Live from the Mars Hotel," was published in 1988, and his first novel, Orbital Decay, was published in 1989. His best-known work is the Coyote series -- Coyote, Coyote Rising, Coyote Frontier, Coyote Horizon, and Coyote Destiny -- and the associative novels set in the same universe: Spindrift, Galaxy Blues, and Hex. A graduate of New England College and the University of Missouri, he is a former journalist, and once spent a brief tenure as a Washington correspondent. He was born and raised in Nashville, Tennessee, and now lives in western Massachusetts with his wife and dogs.



Daryl Gregory is the award-winning author of novels including PandemoniumThe Devil’s Alphabet, and Raising Stony Mayhall, which was named one of Library Journal's best books of the year. His comics work includes Planet of the Apes and Dracula: The Company of Monsters (with Kurt Busiek).



Gardner Dozois is an American science fiction author and editor. He was editor of Asimov's Science Fiction magazine from 1984 to 2004. He has won multiple Hugo and Nebula awards, both as an editor and a writer of short fiction.

Actor, screenwriter and audiobook narrator, SCOTT BRICK definitely gives new meaning to a hyphenate career with credits in film, television, stage and radio. He studied both acting and writing at UCLA, spent ten years with a traveling Shakespearean company, and then went on to become a freelance writer. In 2000, Brick ventured into narrating audiobooks and quickly found himself embraced by the audio world. He’s won numerous Earphones Awards for his narrating skills, as well as Audie Awards. AudioFile Magazine named Brick “one of the fastest-rising stars in the audiobook galaxy,” and proclaimed him a Golden Voice.



NICOLA BARBER has appeared on stage in New York and across the country, including with Scarlett Johnansson in The Nanny Diaries. She holds a degree in theatre arts from UNC-Chapel Hill, and has taken classes at the London Academy of Dramatic Art. She has been training and performing voiceovers since 2001, and can be heard in video games, animation, commercials, and corporate videos, as well as on award-winning audiobooks.

Review :

“An engaging read from start to finish” - Nerdspan

“A delightful read” - Gamers Sphere

"Mash Up is a fantastic collection of stories from different authors who bring their own unique perspective to each one." -  Bio Gamer Girl
