9781566894135: A Collapse of Horses
Revue de presse :

"Some of the stories here evoke Kafka, some Poe, some Beckett, some Roald Dahl, and one, a demonic teddy-bear chiller called BearHeart, even Stephen King, but Evenson's deadpan style always estranges them a bit from their models: He tells his odd tales oddly, as if his mouth were dry and the words won't come out right." - New York Times' Sunday Book Review

" A Collapse of Horses is a perennially dusty, dark, haunted house of atmospheric dilemmas whose plots continually reverse a reader's expectations." - The Collagist

"Evenson is interested in philosophy and semiotics, the impossibility of ever truly knowing or naming the world, and our fundamental, helpless dependence on what our senses tell us...[His stories] are a wonderful feat of the uncanny." - Los Angeles Review,"Review"

"Evenson's fiction is equal parts obsessive, experimental, and violent. It can be soul-shaking." New Yorker,

"The Dark Fiction of an ex-Mormon Writer. - Entropy,"Ultimate Summer Reading List"

"This is Brian Evenson's 12th collection, and reading it one soon becomes aware of being in the presence of a peculiar intelligence." - Toronto Star

"Evenson is a writer with an uncommonly dark vision, and in 2016 he figures to find his biggest audience yet. - Star Tribune

"Violence is punishing but unbelievably subtle in Evenson's delicate, minimalist stories. And ultimately, there is something cosmic something utterly Lovecraftian, but without the baroque language about this type of horror: Beneath the slippery, often abstruse plots lies a vast gulf of nothingness, in the purest and most unsettling sense of the word." - NPR

"A master of literary horror, Evenson's books mix literary sentences with science fiction and fantasy tropes and tie them together with a thread of uncanny dread. - GQ

"This new collection, released alongside new editions of three of his older works, offers a great summation of Evenson s strengths as a writer." - Vol. 1 Brooklyn , " Mid-Year 2016: The Year's Best Fiction (So Far)"

"The stories that comprise A COLLAPSE OF HORSES venture into increasingly dark, even apocalyptic, terrain while maintaining a narrative control that owes at least as much to the experimental spirit of the Oulipo as to the usual suspects of American weird (Poe, Bowles, Burroughs)." - The White Review, Interview

"A Collapse of Horses is a stunning collection of disparate tales of existential terror, which could serve as a good introduction to readers who are not familiar with his work. However, allow your reviewer to warn you: once you have read Evenson, you will want to read all of Evenson; yet beware, like most addictions, it is a dangerous pursuit and one not easy to pass through unscathed." - The Brooklyn Rail

"From surrealism to horror, there's nothing Evenson doesn't do here, and he proves, once again, that he is a master of whichever genre he decides to tackle." - LitReactor

"There is no colour in these stories, and hardly an image. Taken separately, they can seem as cold as ice. But allowed to touch each other horribly, they burn. The collection as a whole comes as close to adding up as the world is likely to allow to those who have lost their way. Each story says what the world does to those who drift into its claws without a lie to cling to." -- Strange Horizons

"A collection of 17 powerful and sometimes very weird stories, some of which will send a shiver up the spine of the most well-balanced reader. Brian Evenson has a genuinely original imagination and a strong stomach." -- Sydney Morning Herald

'One of the premier dark fiction writers working today, Brian Evenson releases a new collection of his hallucinatory stories, A Collapse of Horses. The brilliant title story reads like an Oliver Sacks case study rendered by Edgar Allan Poe. His standout novel Last Days, a labyrinthine mystery inside a cult of amputees, also gets a new reissue.' -- Campus Circle
