Going Home Again by Howard Waldrop

The words "inimitable" and "unique" are bandied about too often in artistic circles, so much so that critics seem to have forgotten those words were invented to describe Howard Waldrop's fiction.

Waldrop's mastery of arcane knowledge, his transcendent wit, and the way his stories explode like cheerty bombs inside a reader's mind have all made Howard Waldrop one of the most beloved writers of the past two decades. Readers who encounter his work never forget the experience, and this new collection compiles nine such experiences (heretofore uncollected), including:

"Flatfeet!", a madcap tour of this century's first decades, courtesy of the Keystone Kops.

"Ocean's Ducks," an homage to those brave black actors of the 1930s.

Remember those "Little Moron" jokes in the schoolyard, like "Why did the Little Moron throw the clock out the window?" "He wanted to see Time fly." Now ask yourself again "Why Did?"

And beware the masked Mexican wrestlers of "El Castillo de la Perserverancia"!

Howard Waldrop's unique and inimitable talents are on full display here. Read on, marvel, and rejoice.
