The Madness of Dr. Caligari

(2016)
An anthology of stories edited by

 
 
22 of today's top weird fictioneers have been challenged for these tales, inspired by the 1920 uber classic The Cabinet of Dr Caligari. In this kaleidoscopic selection of stories everything is to be questioned: is all authority merely abuse? Are we all hypnotized all the time? Asleep and dreaming? Is psychotherapy,merely sadism? Do our memories lie? Who are we, really? What is real; what is magick; what is delusion? What is love?... and how could we ever know the difference? Joe Pulver (award-winning editor of The Grimscribe's Puppets, Cassilda's Song, A Season in Carcosa and others) presents us with these unsettling thoughts and images,in tales which will by turns disturb, frighten, enlighten, perhaps even disgust readers-- but will surely never lull you into ceasing to look over your shoulder to see who-- or what, is creeping up behind... and to wonder

Drawn to mysteries, mystics, devils and nightmares, Joe is a Martian, made of other-era junk from Tom Waits' basement and outtakes from recordings. Discovered HPL at 15, fell hard. Discovered Robert W. Chambers soon after, fell harder! When he began to write he played in fields he loved. He still does. He's also influenced by NOIR fiction, Marvel Comics, poetry, Weird Fiction (Michael Cisco, Jean Ray, Ligotti), and music. Pulver doesn't shy away from his influences, but they serve as guideposts. His work remains uniquely his own. Joseph S. Pulver, Sr. has released 4 acclaimed mixed-genre collections His fiction and poetry has received over two dozen Honorable Mentions from Ellen Datlow, and appeared in such anthologies as Autumn Cthulhu, The Children of Old Leech, The Year's Best Horror, The Book of Cthulhu, A Mountain Walked, and Best Weird Fiction of the Year. He's been praised by Thomas Ligotti, Laird Barron, Michael Cisco, Livia Llewellyn, Jeffery Thomas, and many others.
