Praise for Brian Evenson:

 

"There is not a more intense, prolific, or apocalyptic writer of fiction in America than Brian Evenson." -- George Saunders

 

"Brian Evenson is one of the treasures of American story writing, a true successor both to the generation of Coover, Barthelme, Hawkes and Co., but also to Edgar Allan Poe." -- Jonathan Lethem

 

"One of the most provocative, inventive, and talented writers we have working today." -- The Believer

 

About A Collapse of Horses:

 

A stuffed bear's heart beats with the rhythm of a dead baby; Reno keeps receding to the east no matter how far you drive; and in a mine on another planet, the dust won't stop seeping in. In these stories, Brian Evenson unsettles us with the everyday and the extraordinary the terror of living with the knowledge of all we cannot know.


Praised by Peter Straub for going "furthest out on the sheerest, least sheltered narrative precipice," Brian Evenson has been a finalist for the Edgar Award, the Shirley Jackson Award, and is the World Fantasy Award and the winner of the International Horror Guild Award, the American Library Association's award for Best Horror Novel, and one of "Time Out New York"'s top books.
