Aurora Award Finalist.

Alexander King has everything--wealth, power, a business empire over which he rules. But lately, the corporate game in which he excels has lost its thrill for him. He needs a new game. And then, on the crowded streets of Toronto, in the dead cold of winter, she appears before him.

The Dancer.

Achingly beautiful, half-naked, and dancing to a song that only she and King seem to hear, she becomes King?s new obsession, an obsession that draws him into a journey through a secret world hidden within the city he thought he knew?and to a very special club.

Note: includes an afterword by the author and excerpts from many of his other stories

REVIEWS
"'The Dancer at the Red Door,' with its mix of oblique horror, urban fantasy, and monsters ... recalls British horror novelist Clive Barker at his most disturbingly fanciful." ?Quill and Quire
"An excellent story ? urban fantasy at its best." ?Fantasy Book Critic
"...intriguing meditation on escapism...evoking Gaiman's Neverwhere, the obligatory helping of Lovecraft, plus a touch of something like Kubrick's Eyes Wide Shut" ?Strange Horizons

"Just as the song of the city leads King throughout his journey, so too does it lead the reader throughout Douglas Smith's beautifully crafted 'The Dancer at the Red Door.' The writing is lean and evocative; every element of the story works double-time as setting informs character, action creates mood, and nothing is superfluous. The song becomes a living, breathing creature which, more so than hearing, I could feel viscerally as I read Doug's wonderful story. Highly, highly recommended." ?Rainbow Dragon Recommends
