From Wikipedia, the free Encyclopedia

Michael Shea is an American fantasy author. His works include Nifft the Lean (1982) (winner of the World Fantasy Award) and The Mines of Behemoth (1997) (later republished together as The Incomplete Nifft, 2000), as well as The A'Rak (2000) and In Yana, the Touch of Undying (1985). While the Nifft stories are in some ways unexceptional examples of the "swords-and-sorcery" genre modelled on Jack Vance, they are notable for their imaginative depiction of the world of demons (which could be read as a satire on 1980s greed and consumerism), and a witty blend of horror, flowery diction, and occasionally crude humor. One earlier novel The Color out of Time is an homage to H.P. Lovecraft's "The Colour out of Space" (1984); and his first novel, A Quest For Simbilis, is an authorized (but noncanonical) sequel to Vance's Eyes Of The Overworld.

There are overlaps between Shea's work in the science-fiction and fantasy genres, e.g., demons and aliens that act as endoparasites.
