Product description

Review

"Nickle has carved a path for himself as a pre-eminent author of speculative fiction. He covers a vast literary cross-section, but does so free of clutter. While this work is certainly a political treatise against oppressive entities and their dreadful acts, Nickle never loses sight of the dark poetry inherent in the genre, nor does he overlook simply spinning a good yarn. For all the expanded scope and complexity of ideas and story structure, Volk remains accessible." --Cemetery Dance "It's a nailbiter of an action novel that is spooky as hell, a critical and sharp demolition of Lovecraft's own romanticization of eugenics, a notion that Nickle demolishes with Lovecraft's own tools--very satisfying indeed." --Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing.net "[Volk is] a political, psychological and philosophical allegory of remarkable depth and ambition: the most intellectually provocative horror novel of the twenty-first century." --Alex Good, The Toronto Star "Volk is technically and intellectually very ambitious, and it succeeds on almost every level, including as good, intelligent entertainment." --See The Elephant Magazine "David Nickle's stories are sui generis in presentation, veering from the discombobulating nightmare that is 'Basements' to the squid-laden eco-satire 'Wylde's Kingdom' to the sci-fi love of 'Loves Means Forever.' When it comes to this book, only two things are certain; the stories never travel where you expect, and David Nickle is a monumental talent. --Publishers Weekly (starred review) "Believe the hype: David Nickle is very good." --The Globe and Mail "David Nickle is my favorite kind of writer. His stories are dark, wildly imaginative, and deeply compassionate--even when they're laced with righteous anger. He's at the top of his game in this new book of short stories, and that's about as good as it gets." --Nathan Ballingrud, author of North American Lake Monsters

About the Author

David Nickle is a Toronto-based author and journalist whose fiction has appeared in magazines and anthologies like Cemetery Dance, The Year's Best Fantasy and Horror, the Northern Frights series and the Queer Fear series. Some of it has been collected in his book of stories, Monstrous Affections. His first solo novel, Eutopia: A Novel of Terrible Optimism, led the National Post to call him "a worthy heir to the mantle of Stephen King." His most recent novel, Rasputin's Bastards, was called supernatural eeriness at its best. He also works as a reporter, covering Toronto municipal politics for a chain of community newspapers.
