9780062122599 â€œJeffrey Ford is one of the few writers who uses wonder instead of ink in his pen....A rare and wonderful talent.â€ â€”Jonathan Carroll, author of The Wooden Sea Eclectic is certainly an adjective that can be used to describe the work of the phenomenal Jeffrey Fordâ€”along with imaginative, provocative, mesmerizing, and brilliant. His powerful dark fantasy, The Physiognomy, was a New York Times Notable Book of the Year; his novel, The Girl in the Glass, won the EdgarÂ® Award, mystery and crime fictionâ€™s most prestigious prize. Crackpot Palace is Fordâ€™s fourth superb collection of short fiction, and in it, his prodigious talent shines as brightly as ever. Here are twenty tales both strange and wonderful, filled with mad scientists, vampires, lost souls, and Native American secrets, from an author who has been glowingly compared to Kafka, Dante, and Caleb Carr (The Alienist).
