Mapping the Terrain of Used and Rare Books

“Sideshow, and Other Stories,” by Thomas Ligotti

Sideshow is just what it says: A sideshow to the author’s longer major works. Songs of a Dead Dreamer, Grimscribe, and Noctuary all stand alone very well, but make an obvious trilogy. Sideshow is a departure from the previously mentioned collections that contains five short-short stories contained between a fictional foreword and afterword that hold it as a cohesive Own.

It is a book of its own. A collection that is a sideshow in of itself – It is limited and numbered to just 350 copies, and signed by the author. Something short and rare.

The stories are quick and enigmatic, a little confusing, maybe. But they blossom between the two Foreword and Afterword pieces of this work.

This is a difficult volume to find, but I would highly recommend obtaining it, if you can.

About jansonbriggs

Book collectoe/ dealer, aspiring author, have had poems published in a few small magazines.... I like cats and quiet. I like airplane lift-offs and the new-renewal of wandering (wondering?) around somewhere new. I like solitude. I miss people. Bob Dylan. Running water; still water - I like water. A good sence of humor. Again: A good sense of humor. That's what keeps us sane and human and Kind.
