About this title

Synopsis:

Over twenty years in the making, SIDES represents the first ever collection of non-fiction by bestselling author Peter Straub. Featuring introductions, essays, afterwords, and even a "frivolity" along with the collected works of Putney Tyson Ridge, Straub's "self-invented human speed bump and alter ego" this collection presents a rare glimpse into the author's tastes and personal musings on topics ranging from The Stepford Wives and Dracula to Lawrence Block and Stephen King.

Also included is "The Fantasy of Everyday Life", Straub's Guest-of-Honor speech at the 1998 International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts, and "Mom", an essay that appeared in a book that combined short stories written by mother-son partnerships with essays written by male writers about their mothers. The "frivolity" here "Why Electricman Lives in New York" was written for an anthology celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of New York Is Book Country.

This long awaited collection closes with Putney Tyson Ridge's reviews and commentaries on every Peter Straub book published since the 1970s.

SIDES is a unique and exclusive Cemetery Dance book, with no other editions planned anywhere in the world!

From Publishers Weekly:

Bestselling horror master Straub's first collection of non-fiction, a mixed bag that will appeal mostly to die-hard fans, includes two decades' worth of introductions (e.g., to an edition of The Stepford Wives) and a series of odd short essays by Straub's alter ego, fictional critic and academic Putney Tyson Ridge. While the introductions, especially the essay on Dracula, contain some useful and original material, the quirky and self-deprecating Ridge commentaries provide little insight into Straub's approach to his work. Straub's many admirers will be left hoping for his eventual equivalent to Stephen King's Danse Macabre.
