review To Charles Fort with Love

To Charles Fort with PDFEPUB #227 Fort with Love is award winning fantasist Caitlín R Kiernan's third collection of s. Very interesting and creepy set of stories Some connect to one another some to her novels and some are stand alone or connect to something I haven t read yet Also entertaining are the author s notes about the contexts of writing and publication which are sometimes erudite and other times bitchy Eg So and so rejected this story I got a prize for it the following yearBe aware going into that this really is horror most stories will not end happily and the collection ends on a strongly sad note

To Charles Fort with Love

Hort fiction a haunting parade of the terrible things which may lie To Charles PDF or beyond the boundaries of science. Kiernan nicely characterizes the spirit of this collection in the afterword to Nor the Demons Down Under the Sea where she writesThis is one of those stories which takes very seriously my belief that dark fiction dealing with inexplicable should itself present to the reader a certain inexplicability It s not about resolution nor understanding but that brief disturbing contact which usually characterizes actual paranormal encounters p 232Recommended

Caitlín R. Kiernan ´ 4 review

The minds which may exist beyond psychology and the forbidden places which will never be located in any orthodox glob. CRK is simply the best in her genre and one of the best humans writing in any genre The value of a collection of previously published short stories gathered around a theme and devoted to one of her primary inspirations is that I the obsessive fan don t have to hunt all over to find these great short works I m not that obsessive that i would hunt down all the periodicals and anthologies in which they originally appeared but who knows I may do that anyway The joyful plus of this volume is that the author comments on each story after you have read it and this gives sometimes fascinating insight into Ms Kiernan s thought processes both currently and at the time she wrote it Don t ask me to pick a favorite but many of these stories and cycles are worth the price of admission in and of themselves A wonderful addition for collector s like me

    It's probably not fair to only give this three stars when my only real issue with it is that I don't particularly care for horror There's some really fantastic imagery and tight little portraits of characters that make these short stories very neatly done and if you're into Lovecraft or a creeping sense of unease then I'

    Caitlín Kiernan does something a little unusual with her short story collections in that she organizes them intentionally around a common theme rather than just chronologically ie these are the stories I wrote in the past 5 years here you go This is a great way to skip right over the main problem people cite with short collectio
