Fred Chappell: The Lodger. Cover and frontispiece by Stephen E. Fabian. Published April 1993. World Fantasy Award winner for best short story! Possession is nine-tenths of 'The Lodger' -- along with the wit and insights that have made Fred Chappell one of our most high-regarded fantasists. Following up on his critically acclaimed collection More Shapes Than One (1991), Chappell has crafted a subtle satire that calls to mind both the light fantasy of his World Fantasy Award-winning tale 'The Somewhere Doors' and the dark character studies of his Lovecraftian gothic Dagon (1968).
