This is a collection of wonderful offbeat stories the are reminiscent of Poe. They were so enjoyable that I had to read more by this author. My next choice was Fowlers End, see my review, after which I will try Night in the City. Give this book a go you will not be disappointed and I predict you will be more than pleased you read it.

Straight back to the 1960s and 1970s. Bought this for "Whatever Happened to Corporal Cuckoo?" which I'd remembered from my yoof, innit. Still a good read, though some of Kersh's other stuff strikes me now as naive and a bit childish.

This writer has a rare gift. 28 Jan 2014

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 Forgotten Genius of the Macabre 29 Aug 2014
By Gene Stewart - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.
Gerald Kersh is the best author you've probably never heard of. 9 July 2014
By John - Published on
Format: Paperback
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.
