With his setting of Stefan George's portentous poetic text Ich fühle Luft von anderem Planeten (I feel the air of another planet) in the Second String Quartet, Op. 10 (1908), Arnold Schoenberg proclaimed the arrival of a new kind of music for the twentieth century. Pendragon Press marks the centenary of this epochal masterpiece with the publication of a wide-ranging collection of essays on Schoenberg's chamber works, and the man behind the music. With a list of distinguished contributors from three continents including Alexander Carpenter, James Deaville, Murray Dineen, Sabine Feisst, Allen Forte, Áine Heneghan, Yoko Hirota, Elaine Keillor, Don McLean, Christian Meyer, Severine Neff, Bryan Proksch, and James Wright the book presents new historical, theoretical, biographical, and semiotic perspectives on Schoenberg's chamber music, aesthetics, teaching, and persona. The links between his chamber music and earlier traditions, as well as its impact on subsequent generations of composers internationally, are among the areas of focus. The book features an Introduction written by Lawrence Schoenberg, the composer's son.

"Here is how monstrous humans are." A sentient, murderous prosthetic leg; shadowy creatures lurking behind a shimmering wall; brutal barrow men--of all the terrors that populate The Glassy, Burning Floor of Hell, perhaps the most alarming are the beings who decimated the habitable Earth: humans. In this new short story collection, Brian Evenson envisions a chilling future beyond the Anthropocene that forces excruciating decisions about survival and self-sacrifice in the face of toxic air and a natural world torn between revenge and regeneration. Combining psychological and ecological horror, each tale thrums with Evenson's award-winning literary craftsmanship, dark humor, and thrilling suspense.

Distilled through the occluded lens of weird fiction, Michael Kelly's third collection of strange tales is a timely and cogent examination of grief, love, identity, abandonment, homelessness, and illness. All cut through with a curious, quiet menace and uncanny melancholy. Advance Praise for All the Things We Never See "The stories in Michael Kelly's All the Things We Never See balance on the delicate knife edge of the weird, taking place at the moment of incision, just before the blood rushes to the cut. Full of quiet menace and strangeness, with characters bound into odd relationships both to the world and themselves, relationships they themselves often fail to understand, this is weird fiction at is finest." -- Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World "Michael Kelly's sharp collection of uncanny stories will leave you questioning your relationships, your identity, and reality itself. These stories dig between your ribs and place a cold finger on your heart." -- Paul Tremblay, author of The Cabin at the End of the World, and A Head Full of Ghosts "After having nurtured a sterling reputation as a curator of weird fiction, Michael Kelly here reminds us that he's one of its best practitioners, too. ALL THE THINGS WE NEVER SEE is eerie and unsettling in the best ways, subverting reality and turning it back on itself, questioning the very earth under your feet. In the end, you're left not scared so much as uncertain, even vulnerable--your throat exposed to unseen forces." -- Nathan Ballingrud, author of Wounds, and North American Lake Monsters "Like a cottonmouth sleeping under a silk sheet, there's something unsettling under the surface of Michael Kelly's stories--and once these tales sink their fangs into you, as they did into me, you'll find the venom is strangely addictive." -- Craig Davidson, author of The Saturday Night Ghost Club Michael Kelly is the former Series Editor for the Year's Best Weird Fiction. He's a Shirley Jackson Award-winner, and a World Fantasy Award nominee. His fiction has appeared in a number of journals and anthologies, including Black Static, The Mammoth Book of Best New Horror 21 & 24, Supernatural Tales, Postscripts, Weird Fiction Review, and has been previously collected in Scratching the Surface, and Undertow & Other Laments.

One of the year's most anticipated books by The Millions, Colorlines and Remezcla! Carribean Fragoza's debut collection of stories reside in the domestic surreal, featuring an unusual gathering of Latinx and Chicanx voices from both sides of the U.S./Mexico border, and universes beyond. "Eat the Mouth that Feeds You renders the feminine grotesque at its finest."—Myriam Gurba, author of Mean "Eat the Mouth that Feeds You will establish Fragoza as an essential and important new voice in American fiction."—Héctor Tobar, author of The Barbarian Nurseries "The writing is sharp and unexpected, and full of vivid turns."—David Ulin, Books editor, Alta Magazine In visceral, embodied prose, Fragoza's imperfect characters are drawn with a sympathetic tenderness as they struggle against circumstances and conditions designed to defeat them. A young woman returns home from college, only to pick up exactly where she left off: a smart girl in a rundown town with no future. A mother reflects on the pain and pleasures of being inexorably consumed by her small daughter, whose penchant for ingesting grandma's letters has extended to taking bites of her actual flesh. A brother and sister watch anxiously as their distraught mother takes an ax to their old furniture, and then to the backyard fence, until finally she attacks the family’s beloved lime tree. Victories are excavated from the rubble of personal hardship, and women's wisdom is brutally forged from the violence of history that continues to unfold on both sides of the US-Mexico border. "Fragoza's surreal and gothic stories, focused on Latinx, Chicanx, and immigrant women's voices, are sure to surprise and move readers."—Zoe Ruiz, The Millions "Fragoza's debut collection delivers expertly crafted tales of Latinx people trying to make sense of violent, dark realities. Magical realism and gothic horror make for effective stylistic entryways, as Fragoza seamlessly blurs the lines between the corporeal and the abstract."—Publishers Weekly "Fierce and feminist, Eat the Mouth That Feeds You is a soul-quaking literary force."—Dontaná McPherson-Joseph, The Foreword "The magic realism of Eat the Mouth that Feeds You is thoroughly worked into the fabric of the stories themselves . . . a wonderful debut."—Brian Evenson, author of Song for the Unraveling of the World "Fragoza's prose, a switchblade of a magical glow, cauterizes as it cuts. In a setting of barren citrus trees, poison-filled balloons, and stuccos haunted by the menace of the past, Eat the Mouth That Feeds You reinvents the sunny noir."—Salvador Plascencia, author of The People of Paper "Carribean Fragoza goes deep. This book makes central the lives of women, whether sourced locally or rooted in Mexico, whether alive or dead to the world, surrealistic or hyper realistic, in the flesh or as spirits centuries old. This is storytelling that astonishes . . . "—Sesshu Foster, author of Atomik Aztex "I felt this collection deep in my bones. Like the Chicanx women whose voices she centers, Carribean Fragoza's writing doesn’t flinch. It is sharp and dream-like, tender-hearted and brutal, carved from the violence and resilience of generations past and present."—Natalia Sylvester, author of Everyone Knows You Go Home

Bruce Weigl's poetry has been acclaimed by C. K. Williams as "powerful and frightening, poems [that] force us to repudiate our comfortable uncertainties, our drowsy vagueness," and Carolyn Forche has said that Bruce Weigl "is one of the most important poets of our time." With Song of Napalm and followed by Archeology of the Circle, Weigl has established himself as a poet of incomparable power and lyric fury. For Weigl, home is where the heart is and where the soul must reside. To leave one's home is to leave a vital part of oneself behind, and to return is to reconnect with one's history. The Unraveling Strangeness represents the record of a man in the middle of his life who comes back to his home after being away for twenty-five years. In these poems we find odes to New York City neighborhood life -- live from the front stoop. Poems such as "Hinckley and Nixon" point to a larger national turmoil that seeps its way into the consciousness of the mean streets of New York. Weigl closes with poems penned by a world-weary eye that extends childlike tribute to the wonders of the country. At stake in this journey is a rediscovery of deep and abiding connections to place, to family, and to old friends. Reginald Gibbons has raved that Bruce Weigl's poetry contains "a largeness of spirit that is filled with both hard memories and forgiveness."

Dr. Maria Hnaraki's question is answered in the affirmative as the author takes us on a journey of discovery through the five steps/chapters of this book, constructed in the spirit of the traditional pendozalis five-step dance.
