Description: "Brian Evenson is one of the treasures of American story writing, a true successor both to the generation of Coover, Barthelme, Hawkes and Co., but also to Edgar Allan Poe."—Jonathan LethemA metal band stranded on a tropical island, a king's servant hypnotized by his horse, a magician's disappearing act gone awry—the characters in these stories live as interlopers in a world shaped by mysterious disappearances and unfathomable discrepancies between the real and imagined. Brian Evenson, master of "literary horror," presents his most far-ranging collection to date, exploring how humans can persist in an increasingly unreal world. Haunting, gripping, and psychologically fierce, these tales illuminate a dark and unsettling side of humanity.Praised by Peter Straub for going "furthest out on the sheerest, least sheltered narrative precipice,"Brian Evensonis the author of ten books of fiction. He has been a finalist for the Edgar Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and the World Fantasy Award, and the winner of the International Horror Guild Award, the American Library Association's award for Best Horror Novel, and one ofTime Out New York's top books. The recipient of a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship and three O. Henry Prizes, including one for the title story inWindeye, Evenson lives in Providence, Rhode Island, where he directs Brown University's literary arts program.
