Overview

From African Death Gods to the hard life of a low-level drug dealer, author Bernard Schaffer spins tales of the dark and desperate. Now, after several years, all of his short works have been collected in one specially-priced volume.
Codex Fantastica contains stories from the author's groundbreaking collections "Women and Other Monsters" and "Overdogs" as well as assorted essays and more. Tales of a spurned wife's revenge so stunning, you will not believe what you just read. A two-part vampire tale about a man seeking revenge on the fanged monster that stole his woman. A father who will stop at nothing to save his little girl. Journeys into the afterlife where nothing is as advertised and the truth is much stranger and better than anything one could possibly imagine.

According to best selling author Tony Healey of the Far From Home saga, "Nobody out there is doing what Schaffer is doing right now: Re-writing the rule book."

Codex Fantastica contains 19 awe-inspiring works from one of American literature's best and bravest new voices.
