  • About Me

    I grew up in the town of Catskill, New York, where they teach the stories of Washington Irving in history class. As I understood it then, Rip Van Winkle took his long nap in the woods behind my house. As I understand it now, he may still be out there.

    My first novel, The Manual of Detection, was published by The Penguin Press. My stories have appeared in Best New American Voices, Best American Fantasy, Chicago Review, Conjunctions, and elsewhere.

    I write book reviews for the L.A. Times, and I'm an editor of Small Beer Press, publisher of fiction fine & weird.

    Any favorite authors? Books?

    Italo Calvino, Angela Carter, G.K. Chesterton, Jorge Luis Borges, Kelly Link, Milorad Pavić, Raymond Chandler, Robert Walser, E.T.A. Hoffmann, George Eliot, Karen Joy Fowler.

    Actually I liked your story "The Trials" so much that I went out and read your novel too. It was soooooo cool.

    I sent you a comment on the Big Game. And for some reason, after I did I looked here. I didn't realize you wrote MOD! Nice job! I read and enjoyed it. Hang in there.
