Overview

COLLECTED HERE ARE KLEIN'S RARE AND OBSCURE SHORT STORIES, HARD TO FIND EVEN FOR DEDICATED FANS.

Creatures sinister but unseen. Madmen who may not be so mad. Realities that twist into astonishing patterns. Insidious new technologies beyond our understanding or control. Welcome to the existential weird fiction of master storyteller T.E.D. KLEIN, the acclaimed editor of Twilight Zone magazine and author of the bestselling novel The Ceremonies and the award-winning four-novella collection Dark Gods.

More than a decade ago, Klein's shorter stories were collected in Reassuring Tales in an edition limited to 600 copies. It quickly sold out and is today hard to find even for dedicated fans. This new expanded edition reprints the earlier book's contents, along with two previously uncollected stories, three poems, an essay, new illustrations, and an interview with the author.

Stories include:

  • Camera Shy
  • Curtains for Nat Crumley
  • Growing Things
  • Imagining Things
  • Ladder
  • Magic Carpet
  • One Size Eats All
  • Renaissance Man
  • S.F.
  • The Events at Poroth Farm
  • They Don't Write 'em Like This Anymore
  • Well-Connected

Be advised: the tales in this collection are anything but reassuring...

About the Author

A lifelong New Yorker, T.E.D. Klein was the founding editor of "Twilight Zone Magazine" from 1981 to 1985. His first (and so far only) novel, "The Ceremonies," was a New York Times bestseller and won the 1984 British Fantasy Society award. In 1985 he published "Dark Gods," a collection of four novellas, one of which, "Nadelman's God," won the 1986 World Fantasy Award; another, "Children of the Kingdom," was cited by Victor LaValle in the New York Times as "the greatest New York City horror story of all time." He later edited the true-crime magazine "CrimeBeat" and wrote the screenplay for Dario Argento's thriller "Trauma." His nonfiction writing has been collected in "Providence After Dark." In 2012, the World Horror Convention bestowed on him its Grand Master award. "In close to 25 years of writing," says literary critic S. T. Joshi, "Klein has only two books and a handful of scattered tales to his credit, and yet his achievement towers gigantically over that of his more prolific contemporaries."
