The Very Best of Caitlin R. Kiernan

by Caitlin R. Kiernan

With an introduction by Richard Kadrey

Caitlín R. Kiernan is one of dark fantasy and horror’s most acclaimed and influential short fiction writers. Her powerful, unexpected stories shatter morality, gender, and sexuality: a reporter is goaded by her toxic girlfriend into visiting sadistic art exhibits; a countess in a decaying movie theater is sated by her servants; a collector offers his greatest achievement to ensnare a musician who grieves for her missing sister.

In this retrospective collection of her finest work—previously only available in limited editions—Kiernan cuts straight to the heart of the emotional truths we cannot ignore.

Reviews

“Bodies, relationships, and the world are all changeable, shifting, and unstable in this collection by a master of dark fiction.”
