Kafkaesque is officially out!
Happy 11/11/11! I probably should have made this post at 11:11 AM (but I forgot). But if I had posted it then, it would have been pretty Kafkaesque. Or obsessive compulsive, but let's not quibble over semantics when I have a book to talk about.
Kafkaesque, our Kafka-inspired anthology edited by John Kessel and James Patrick Kelly, is now on the shelves. This anthology features nineteen excellent short stories from a fantastic range of authors, including Jorge Luis Borges, T. C. Boyle, Carol Emshwiller, J. G. Ballard, Eileen Gunn, Terry Bisson, Philip Roth, Jeffrey Ford, Michael Blumlein, Theodora Goss, Jonathan Lethem, and Carter Scholz, all exploring the impact Franz Kafka left in the literary world.
Kafkaesque also features a new translation of Kafka's "A Hunger Artist" alongside the R. Crumb (Fritz the Cat) comic of the same story, so it's a must have for the Kafka completest (kompletest? hmm...).
