In this new collection from World Fantasy Award-winner Jeff VanderMeer, car accidents, Angkor Wat, dead whales, flower vendors, dogcatchers, classic television shows, frogs, and the moon are transformed by the author's imagination into something unique and magical. Showcaseing his Rhysling Award-winning poem "Flight," reprinted in Nebula Awards 30, The Day Dali Died also provides a selection of short-short fictions- including "Bullets and Airplanes," "The County Fair," and "How Benjobi Song Came to Rule Iphagenia" (original to this collection). From lost books to mythic journeys into the surreal, The Day Dali Died showcases VanderMeer's talent for both epiphany and precise detail.

The Age Of Spectacular Death

Author : Michael Hviid Jacobsen

This book explores death in contemporary society – or more precisely, in the ‘spectacular age’ – by moving beyond classic studies of death that emphasised the importance of the death taboo and death denial to examine how we now ‘do’ death. Unfolding the notion of ‘spectacular death’ as characteristic of our modern approach to death and dying, it considers the new mediation or mediatisation of death and dying; the commercialisation of death as a ‘marketable commodity’ used to sell products, advance artistic expression or provoke curiosity; the re-ritualisation of death and the growth of new ways of finding meaning through commemorating the dead; the revolution of palliative care; and the specialisation surrounding death, particularly in relation to scholarship. Presenting a range of case studies that shed light on this new understanding of death in contemporary culture, The Age of Spectacular Death will appeal to scholars of sociology, cultural and media studies, psychology and anthropology with interests in death and dying.

Perhaps "Errata" is a metafictional narrative about a short story assigned to Jeff VanderMeer (or a fictional version of Jeff VanderMeer) by a now-defunct literary journal (or a fictional version of a now-defunct literary journal) explicitly for the purposes of determining THE FATE OF THE WORLD. Or perhaps it's just a story about a Siberian penguin. It is incumbent upon you, the reader, to decide which stream of reality we are lazily floating along in. The real Jeff VanderMeer's recent books include the acclaimed novels Finch and Shriek: An Afterward. His short fiction has appeared in several Year's Best anthologies and has been shortlisted for Best American Short Stories. VanderMeer has also edited or co-edited several anthologies, including the prestigious Leviathan fiction anthology series, The Thackery T. Lambshead Pocket Guide to Eccentric & Discredited Diseases, and the acclaimed Steampunk anthology. He has won the World Fantasy Award twice. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) is best known for his unique and striking style with an extraordinary repertoire reaching out across film, painting, photography, and sculpture. Whilst his name may be most commonly associated with Surrealism, Dalí consummately displayed mastery over such broad genres as classical, modernist, and Cubist styles. A crucial figure in art history, Dalí has inspired countless literary works and this edifying Best Of volume gives readers a fascinating insight into the life and career highlights of one of art’s most controversial and exciting pioneers.

Detroit homicide Detective Bonnie Benham has been transferred from narcotics for using more than arresting and is working the case of a killer of adolescent girls. CSI collects DNA evidence from the scene of the latest victim, which had not been detected on the other victims. But no suspect turns up in the FBI database. Due to the notoriety of the crimes a task force is put together with Bonnie as the lead detective, and she implores the D.A. to use an as yet unapproved type of a DNA Search in an effort to identify the killer. Homicide Detective Neil Jensen, with his own history of drug and alcohol problems, understands Bonnie's frailty and the two detectives become inseparable as they track this killer of children.
