Jeffrey Ford recommends
Meet Me in the Moon Room
Meet Me in the Moon Room (2001)
Ray Vukcevich
"The absurd and the profound are seamlessly joined through fine writing. Meet Me in the Moon Room is a first-rate collection."
The Devil in Brisbane
The Devil in Brisbane (2005)
Zoran živković
"The Devil in Brisbane is an anthology alive with all of the spontaneity, cunning, wild imagination, and artifice of its namesake. Zoran živković has conjured thirty tales of sardonic splendor from Australian writers both new and more established. In this case, the Devil is most definitely in the details."

The Traitor (2007)
(Cheek Frawg's Weird, book 1)
Michael Cisco
"Michael Cisco's The Traitor is a sinister, hilarious, and profound story, hallucinatory in its language magic... Lovers of dark fantasy will find something utterly unique and compelling here."
Shadowbridge (2007)
(Shadowbridge, book 1)
Gregory Frost
"Beautifully written and realized."

Escape From Hell! (2009)
Hal Duncan
"Duncan's writing is fluent and powerful. He possesses an imagination capable of both conjuring words and capturing the intricacies of moments."

The Enigmatic Pilot (2011)
Kris Saknussemm
"Kris Saknussemm's Enigmatic Pilot, with its shades of Twain and Melville's Confidence Man, its own unique style and vision, sense of humor and remarkable characters, is a balls out adventure story, a fascinating "historical" account of the Civil War era, a love story, and a mirror within which a reader might glimpse the current state of the union."

The Subterranean Season (2015)
Dale Bailey
"Bailey, unlike a lot contemporaries, never forgets the humor, which makes the darkness more profound."
