Big (or at least, interesting) doings at small presses

Lately I’ve been having fun with a piece that appeared in the Washington Post Book World on December 21.  In “Collector’s Corner, Where Small (and Often Chilling!) Is Beautiful,” Michael Dirda profiles a number of small presses that are publishing some very intriguing, off-the-beaten-path works. Check out the links; some of these presses have fascinating web pages.

I already knew about  Night Shade Books from their excellent anthology, Eclipse One. Come to find out, Eclipse Two has recently been released by these inventive folks. Some the writers in these collections have a marvelous sense of the absurd; see “Unique Chicken Goes in Reverse.”

Here’s a graphic from the Night Shade site:

I often feel this way while blogging!
