Gerald Kersh had a wild imagination matched by a vivid, near-hallucinatory style. Many of his concepts are so original that they blur the distinction between fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and horror, but the cumulative impact of his short stories is horrific in the extreme.

  • Here is the Harlan Ellison collection of Gerald Kersh stories that kept Kersh's name alive after literally all his work, once best-selling, celebrated, and popular, had fallen out of print. Amazing that such a remarkable talent could be forgotten. These stories leave indelible impressions on the reader. They demonstrate a mastery of language, a darkly cynical world view, and a harshly realistic look at all the way we deceive and hurt ourselves by ignoring what it plainly before us. You owe it to yourself, if you enjoy today's dark fantasy, horror, and outré fiction, the weird and the terrifying stuff, to explore Gerald Kersh's steaming jungles and rotting port towns, because in Kersh is rooted much of what we're still reading today. Grab a copy and be amazed, delighted, and more than a little unsettled. This is the good stuff.

  • Read this book along with my sister well over fortyfive years ago and we happened to bring it up in conversation a short while ago. The story "Voices in the Dust of Annan" alone makes it a must read. It stuck with me all this time.

  • The book was given to me somewhere around 1970 and it just blew me away. If the sample version gives the introduction by Harlan Ellison, please read it. He summarizes far better than I ever could the gift that this writer has. I'm trying to get my favorite books from my collection into the Kindle and this book indeed is one of the best.

  • A senior sci-fi writer pulling out a number of stops in a series of engrossing stories, including the established classic, "Whatever happened to Corporal Cuckoo?"

  • Good classic sci-fi if a little dated.

  • One of the best writers in the English-speaking world. Period.

  • I had seen many enthusiastic recommendations of Kersh's work. This collection was often mentioned (and it was edited by a favorite writer of mine, Harlan Ellison) so I decided to use it as my introduction to his work. To say it was a disappointment is an inadequate description. Let me be clear: Kersh can flat out write. He can create a phrase that leaves you in admiring awe. Unfortunately, there is more to crafting fiction than turning a beautiful phrase. Almost every story in this collection started out setting a skilled tone, establishing an intriguing premise and featuring lush writing. Story after story simply didn't deliver on that initial promise. It's as if Kersh had never learned the basics of plotting -- too often the stories either petered out or ended in some trite, artificially tacked-on irony. Did he get bored by the story? Was he incapable of figuring out how to end it? It's as if James Joyce had collaborated with a marginally talented and easily bored high school freshman. If this is supposed to be top flight Kersh, I don't need to investigate his work further.

  • These stories transcend typical genre fiction with their eldritch, provocative, and outright humorous ideas. Each one is simply reading bliss. Any serious reader of speculative fiction should take advantage of the opportunity to experience this collection.
