Two excellent new titles are simply wonderful recommendations featuring top-notch writers and varied, absorbing plots. Jack Dann edits The Fiction Factory (1930846363, $24.95), a fine collaborative collection of Jack Dann's short fiction with stories written with one or more co-authors from Gardner Dozois to Jack Haldeman and Barry Malzberg. These 18 stories include a Nebula-nominated short ''High Steel'' as well as others nominated for honors, and are as varied as an account of first dates with Jesus, time machines, and a vampire in a concentration camp. These are quite diverse presentations packed with magic and variety: a huge delight for any who like different plots.
