Going Home Again/Waldrop, Howar/Paper/0958686408/S050-E2
"Howard Waldrop is one of the best short story writers alive, bar none, in and out of any genre. His stories are unlike any other on the planet. There are regional writers, there are post-modern writers, there are New Yorker writers and John Campbell school writers and New Wave writers and cyberpunk writers and fantasists and magical realists...and there is Howard. His stories are wacky, whimsical, profound, emblematic, funny, and right off the deep end; and most of them keep resonating as memories of experiences lived rather than read. Howard's stories are larger than life, yet they somehow touch the very centre of it.
"Howard Waldrop is the resident Weird Mind of his generation and he writes like a honkytonk angel." - The Washington Book World.
"Howard Waldrop's stories transcend the boundaries of genre even as they fulfill them; real classics, real art." - Pat Cadigan.
"The result of Waldrop's bizarrely eclectic imagination and gonzo sense of humour is magic. He has produced one of the most original and consistently excellent bodies of short work. A genius." - Gardner Dozois.
