Fiction. CONTAGION AND OTHER STORIES is one of Brian Evenson's most sought after and lauded collections of fiction. It has been out of print for nearly a decade. With short stories like the O. Henry Award-winning "Two Brothers," Evenson takes his readers into a world that is at once apocalyptic, dark, observant, and grotesque without ever dipping into static genre conventions. CONTAGION AND OTHER STORIES shows Brian Evenson at his best—taunt sentences, sharp dialogue, and deep psychological subtext. A must have for any fan of contemporary fiction or fans of Brian Evenson.

"CONTAGION remains one of the most strange and powerful books of the new millennium."—The Believer

About the Author:

Brian Evenson is the author of twelve books of fiction, most recently the novel Immobility (Tor Books, 2012), the story collection WINDEYE (Coffee House Press, 2012), and the limited edition novella Baby Leg (New York Tyrant Press, 2009). In 2009 he also published the novel Last Days (which won the American Library Association's award for Best Horror Novel of 2009) and the story collection FUGUE STATE, both of which were on Time Out New York's top books of 2009. His novel THE OPEN CURTAIN (Coffee House Press) was a finalist for an Edgar Award and an IHG Award. His work has been translated into French, Italian, Spanish, Japanese and Slovenian. He lives and works in Providence, Rhode Island, where he directs Brown University's Literary Arts Program. Other books include The Wavering Knife (which won the IHG Award for best story collection), Dark Property, and Altmann's Tongue. He has translated work by Christian Gailly, Jean Frémon, Claro, Jacques Jouet, Eric Chevillard, Antoine Volodine, and others. He is the recipient of three O. Henry Prizes as well as an NEA fellowship.

Review:

"It's work that lodges in a reader long after he's through turning the pages, like ancient scripture or true crime." -- Rick Moody, author of THE ICE STORM and PURPLE AMERICA

"Readers of Ballard and Burroughs will exult in CONTAGION..." -- Rikki Ducornet, author of THE FANMAKER'S INQUISITION
