Image Patricia Russo had her first professional short story, “True Love”, published in 1987 in the anthology Women of Darkness: Original Horror and Dark Fantasy by Contemporary Women Writers, edited by Kathryn Ptacek. Since then her work has appeared in Lone Star Stories, Electric Velocipede, Abyss and Apex, Talebones, Tales of the Unanticipated, Not One of Us, in the anthologies Corpse Blossoms and Zencore, and in many other fine publications. She is that rarest of authors: she has no website, no blog, nothing on the internet to indicate that she even exists — except for a trail of fiction that reveals the prolific and generous writer behind the name. This is her first collection of short stories.

Shiny Thing blurs the lines between fantasy, horror and science fiction. The stories inside are suffused with magic and danger, and will sometimes chill you to the bone. With a delicate touch Patricia Russo reveals humanity in all of its foibles and glorious moments, in settings that range from the perfectly average to the absolutely sublime. You can never be quite sure who is the monster and who is the heroine, and sometimes there is no divide. The characters are people you know, yet they do things you would never expect, and within each story there is one shining thing that somehow changes them all. You know the old saying — all that glitters is not gold. Well sometimes, all that is gold does not glitter. In Shiny Thing, your life depends on being able to tell the difference.

Image NEW YORK—What's left to do once you have conquered the internet in Turkey? How about starting an art gallery in New York? That's exactly what Emre Kurteppeli, the art collector and founder of Turkish internet hub Mynet, did after finding two partners — New York lawyer Mel Dogan and Turkish businessman Erkut Soyak — who were equally interested in supporting artists from emerging markets. They found a 9,000-square-foot piece of real estate on fashionable 24th Street in Chelsea, hired some big names in the industry, courted a splashy guest curator, and threw one of the most crowded art openings of the month at their new space, C24.

Image Perhaps the biggest difference between the NFL and NBA lockouts is that the guys who play hoop have more ways to make money. For NFL players, the best alternative market is the Canadian Football League, which doesn't pay big. For NBA talent, there's a whole world of opportunity out there in Europe, Asia and the Middle East.

That point was reinforced today when a Turkish team, Besiktas, let it be known that it has talked with Kobe Bryant's reps about adding the Lakers star to its roster if the lockout drags on.
