Reassuring Tales: Expanded Edition by T.E.D. Kline
Trade Paperback – Pickman’s Press – 2021 – 168 pages
Creatures sinister but unseen. Madmen who may not be so mad. Realities that twist into astonishing patterns. Insidious new technologies beyond our understanding or control. Welcome to the existential weird fiction of master storyteller T.E.D. KLEIN, the acclaimed editor of Twilight Zone magazine and author of the bestselling novel The Ceremonies and the award-winning four-novella collection Dark Gods.
More than a decade ago, Klein’s shorter stories were collected in Reassuring Tales in an edition limited to 600 copies. It quickly sold out and is today expensive and hard to find even for dedicated fans. This new expanded edition reprints the earlier book’s contents, along with two previously uncollected stories, three poems, an essay, new illustrations, and an interview with the author.
Be advised: the tales found here are anything but reassuring…
