Author(s): Brian Evenson
"A stuffed bear beats with the rhythm of a dead baby's heart; a crew on a space mission are dying of exposure to alien dust and at the hands of a killer among them; and a town keeps receding to the east as a man travels back to the father who drove him away. In these stories, Brian Evenson unsettles us with the everyday and the extraordinary:the terror of living with the knowledge of all we cannot know."
"Brian Evenson is the author of a dozen works of fiction. He has been a finalist for the Edgar Award and the Shirley Jackson Award, and has won an International Horror Guild Award and American Library Association's award for Best Horror Novel. He lives in Los Angeles and teaches at CalArts."
