A high quality production typical of Centipede Press' meticulous attention to detail: three-piece cloth-over-boards construction with head and tail bands and integral ribbon place marker; full-color pictorial dust jacket by Brian McCarty printed on Mohawk Carnival stock. Written over the course of three decades, these remarkable stories showcase the breadth and power of Michael Blumlein's vision. By turns prescient, poignant, haunting and humorous, they consistently amaze and delight. They are powered by sex, romance, pleasure in all its forms, anguish in some of its forms, ambition and music. Michael Blumlein is the author of "The Movement of Mountains," "X,Y," "The Healer," and, most recently, "Ageless." He is also the author of the award-winning story collection "The Brains of Rats." In addition to writing, Dr Blumlein practices and teaches medicine at the University of California at San Francisco. Blumlein is nothing if not humane and just. And funny. His signature wit is on full display. The man is a born barker, a pitchman for the weird, the provocative and the ridiculous. He's a nature boy. He's sentimental. He's a student and a biology geek. Undeniably, the stories themselves are exemplary, and the literary excellence they embody is embellished immeasurably by the illustrious illustrations of contemporary artist and photographer, Brian McCarty who is increasingly becoming known as an underground force majeur for his work with toys, which he cleverly integrates into real-life situations through the use of forced perspective in carefully crafted photographic scenes. Although his fanciful scenarios are grounded in reality, his use of wit and whimsy often contribute to his works being associated with the Art-Toy, Lowbrow, and Pop Surrealist movements. McCarty has created collaborative work with a number of well-known artists from the Art-Toy and Pop Surrealist movements, including Mark Ryden, Gary Baseman, Tim Biskup, Joe Ledbetter and a host of others. An uncommon McCarty-signed edition, which adds significantly to the volume's collectibility factor. May require additional postage for expedited or international delivery.
