Jack Cady’s keen and profound insight into the collective psyche of the modern world—both from a narrative standpoint and from a critical cultural analysis—is on ready display in Fathoms, his second collection of fiction and non-fiction. Fathoms includes his Bram Stoker and Nebula Award-winning story, “The Night We Buried Road Dog,” as well as the marvelous whimsy of “The Poet in the School,” the haunted “Play Like I’m Sheriff,” and the mercurial danger and delight of “The Curious Candy Store.”

There is an endless depth to the mystery of the world, and, once again, Jack Cady takes us deep into the marvel of it
