"This collection of wry and witty, dark and perilous contemporary fables and tales is populated by people--and monsters and aliens and animals and inanimate objects--motivated by and grappling with the fears and desires that unite us all."--P.  of cover.
"If Mother Goose and Philip K. Dick had a love child, and Richard Brautigan raised him in "Watermelon Sugar," he might write stories like Ben Loory." -Jonathan Evison
Loory's collection of wry and witty, dark and perilous contemporary fables is populated by people-and monsters and trees and jocular octopi-who are united by twin motivations: fear and desire. In his singular universe, televisions talk (and sometimes sing), animals live in small apartments where their nephews visit from the sea, and men and women and boys and girls fall down wells and fly through space and find love on Ferris wheels. In a voice full of fable, myth, and dream, "Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day" draws us into a world of delightfully wicked recognitions, and introduces us to a writer of uncommon talent and imagination.
