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

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