Firesoul is actually male but perceiving himself as femalen his psychotic state and the reality of the story Jonathan Franzen: The Comedy of Rage is from hisher point of view The storys deliberately set upon two levels supernatural and psychotic and the levels merge and You Are the Rain interchangeThe story concludes with remarkable lines from the fictional dangerous play The Kingn Yellow I resist the temptation to reprint them here Beyond Any Measure A supernatural suspense story with reincarnation vampires lesbianism wild suspense story with reincarnation vampires lesbianism wild I finally was able to run down a copy of Wagner s In a Lonely Place via Interlibrary Loan It s ridiculous given the uality of the stories within this collection that Cycle Style it s out of print and prohibitively expensivef you decide to purchase a used copy Wagner was a very Artscroll Children's Siddur interesting guy a Pulp writer who trained to be a doctor and psychiatrist Ifnterested to know there s long piece on him from a high school friend John Mayer with whom he shared a real nterest n Pulp at I said above the stories Iron Cross in A Lonely Place are of high uality thenfluences varied though Lovecraft seems prominent In several stories Wagner s own biography plays out a bit beneath the surface but Zachary's Virgin if I hadn t of read the article I wouldn t of known that Briefly1 In the Pines A modern day ghost ors Pfaueninsel it story setn the mountains of Tennessee A couple tries to put their lives back together after an automobile accident Wagner really captures the area and the people of the mountains really well And he wisely ncorporates the old blues song In the Pines nto the story It s a dark haunting song and Wagner delivers a worthy story to accompany Torah With Ramban's Commentary Translated, Annotated, And Elucidated: Devarim/Deuteronomy (Artscroll) it2 Where the Summer Ends Great story with a goofy title I would of calledt Kudzu Hints of Lovecraft A college student and collector like Wagner himself befriends an old antiue store owner n the Red Hook part of Knoxville 3 Sticks A much anthologized and for #good reason story of an ancient race a war veteran and artist and some strange art work found n the woods #reason story of an ancient race a war veteran and artist and some strange art work found n the woods can t help but wonder f the makers of Blair Witch Project took the weird things hanging from the trees from this story Again Lovecraft nfluenced Also something of an homage to Pulp artists4 The Fourth Seal Not bad but not great either story of medicine doctors and secret cults Wagner s personal biography plays out some here5 More Sinned Against A shift n style telling a modern day Hollywood BabylonLife n the Fast Lane story that nvolves porn drugs and Voodoo Not bad but not great either6 220 Swift Completely crazy and Voodoo Not bad but not great either6 220 Swift Completely crazy Time Capsule involving secret gold mines little people mountaineers moonshine folk lore a hit man Spanish conuistadors and ultimately an albino king from the underworld Wonderful7 The River of Night s Dreaming A dreamlike and nightmare like storynvolving an escapee from a prison an old dark house and some kinky stuff Wagner s background Hot Under the Collar in psychiatrys evident here Very good8 Beyond Any Measure Wild story Horses involving reincarnation drugs sex black magic setn a very decadent modern day London There s a party scene that seems right out of Eyes Wide Shut Good with a very twisted ending Goblin King i d been looking for this book for about ten years could never findt for less than 50 finally stumbled on The Luthier's Apprentice it by accident at the LA paperback book festival 20 couldn t afford not to buyt went home and read Factories in the Field: The Story of Migratory Farm Labor in California it straight through filled with glee now wast worth t well would say no although Sticks Villa Mendl: Leben und Schicksal der Ankerbrot-Erbin Bettina Mendl is of course a great story scary as hell and often anthologized and 220 Swifts pretty good and Where the Summer Ends and The River of Night s Dreaming are both excellent okay so guess t s worth Schlechter Sex 2 it already but then THEN the last story Beyond Any Measure which franklysn t really all that good lots of goofy 80s leather SM cocaine party nonsense and chicks makin out New Jewish Voices: Plays Produced by the Jewish Repertory Theatre in the shower for our enjoyment suddenly on the last two pages pulls out this amazing premise holy shit such a greatdea couldn t believe t just really brilliant wish the story tself was better but hey t s a once n a century type story Sword and Sorceress 24 idea andf wagner never did anything else n his life that dea alone would last him forever much respect This s a collection of Wagner s short horror stories and t s one of my favorite horror collections of all time Incredible stories that really stay with you long after you read them It s too bad Wagner died so young I was lucky enough to obtain a copy when first published and The Riptide Ultra-Glide it has pride of placen my libraryIt can still be found but the price s ridiculousAlthough Karl s over fond of the word lich these stories stand the test of time and are truly unforgettable Especially Sticks and The Fourth Seal I highly recommend. Of Night’s Dreaming Beyond Any Measur. Sticks was phenomenal and so tightly streamlined Mardi Gras it made most of the other stories feel overwritten Its no wonder this story has been anthologized so much The River of Night s Dreaming a King n Yellow story was also somewhat good although t went n a much less nteresting direction than I had hoped for after the ntrigue of the opening scenes 220 Swift held promise but ultimately relied too much on a somewhat tedious build up that grew muddy and failed to deliver much of substance considering too much on a somewhat tedious build up that grew muddy and failed to deliver much of substance considering nvestment At times Wagner employs the male gaze to a ridiculous extent like That Yankee Cat: The Maine Coon in Beyond Any Measure where the two roommates are lounging around togethern their lingerie because that s normal and he feels the need to describe how the one woman s straining thigh muscles shaped her buttocks nicely as she reached for a book Seriously Beyond that many of these stories are weighed down with the kind of banal and unnecessary expository detail for which I long ago lost any patience Introduction Peter Straub pretty much raves about KEW high praise from one of his peers It s really nteresting reading this n comparison to the Ghost Stories of Washington introduction he did to Walk on the Wild Side The Best Horror Stories of Karl Edward Wagner

perhaps one of the best most believable conspiracy theories I ve ever read220 Swift takes several tropes that Robert E Howard used The Thinking Beekeeper: A Guide to Natural Beekeeping in Top Bar Hives in his stories an old Greek myth blended uniuely served superbly I kind of knew wheret was going but the ending still horrified meThe River of Night s Dreaming So often the supernatural element Urban Legend Detectives Case 4: The Samejima Case is obvious In this story the POVs so unreliable as to toss reality up for grabs What really happened I m not sure but Die vier Jahreszeiten it was one

#of this book for merely being a 1984 mass market paperback this book can cost upwards 40 n online shops keep an eye out The Huguenot Sword in your local used bookstores and even so that I finally read the thing I have to say I was a little underwhelmed by my first exposure to Karl Edward WagnerThe first three of the seven stories herein are nearly brilliant and cemented Mr Wagner as an author I wish to continue to exploren the Poetic Machinations: Allegory, Surrealism, and Postmodern Poetic Form immediate future The other four however left me rather frustrated mainly because after the bar had been set so high from the earlier stories these were actually pretty disappointingTake fornstance The Fourth Seal a conspiratorial tale of the medical world It s paced perfectly on that later and In the Shadow of Empires its great revelations are well executed yet the ending just felt hamfisted and kind of predictable220 Swift a particular favorite of Peter Straub started out nicely two archaeologists explore a series of minesn the west with signs uickly growing n number and certainty that something nhuman had created the warren of tunnels beneath the ground Sounds neat and creepy doesn t The 101 Dalmatians it Its uite so for the first half yet just when things seem to come to a dark conclusionit takes a strange turn showing what appears to be an epilogue of sorts which uickly expands From Pocahontas to Power Suits: Everything You Need to Know about Women's History in America into a whole other stretch of revelation which frankly I found uite out of placen the overall framework and context of the story And to top The Story of the Orchestra it off the denouement while tying backnto the original promise of the story felt somewhat forced Only Say the Word into a different direction and I wasn t left very satisfied withtThe River of Night s Dreaming had a most astonishing buildup with a bus containing mental hospital patients crashing off of a road and Sweet Music on Moonlight Ridge into a river and an unnamed woman having narrowly survived the river wanderingnto a creepy seemingly deserted town Like 220 Swift however the turn t takes from there was kind.
