New Chuck Palahniuk Story Featured In Neil Gaiman's New Anthology 'Stories'
Our favorite affiliate, St. Helen's Book Shop, is the best place to not only order Chuck Palahniuk books online, but to also have them personally signed and inscribed to you by the man himself! (yes, Chuck visits the store quite frequently to fulfill online inscription requests). Usually our promotions for St. Helen's Book Shop have to do with a new novel, but this time, Chuck is signing copies of an anthology of short stories edited by Neil Gaiman! The anthology features a short story Chuck read on tour in the past called The Loser.
Here are the details from St. Helen's themselves. (and hurry, they only have 100 of these!)
Limited Quantity! Chuck Palahniuk will only be signing 100 of these for us, and then they will be gone. If you placed your order before July 4th, your copy will ship the weekend of July 17th. All other orders will not ship till early September, after our next meeting with Mr. Palahniuk.
New anthology containing the brand-new Chuck Palahniuk story, "The Loser", featuring "a college kid on acid as a contestant on a game show."
"Stories" is a groundbreaking anthology that reinvigorates, expands, and redefines the limits of imaginative fiction and affords some of the best writers in the world--from Peter Straub and Chuck Palahniuk to Roddy Doyle and Diana Wynne Jones, Stewart O'Nan and Joyce Carol Oates to Walter Mosley and Jodi Picoult--the opportunity to work together, defend their craft, and realign misconceptions.
Gaiman, a literary magician whose acclaimed work defies easy categorization and transcends all boundaries, and "master anthologist" ("Booklist") Sarrantonio personally invited, read, and selected all the stories in this collection, and their standard for this "new literature of the imagination" is high. "We wanted to read stories that used a lightning-flash of magic as a way of showing us something we have already seen a thousand times as if we have never seen it at all."
