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.
