Comments To Charles Fort, With Love

  • Annie

    WOW. Caitlin Kiernan is amazing and brilliant - every time I read another book of hers I'm just more and more impressed. I think one aspect I love most is the amazing worldbuilding. It's different than the usual way I think of worldbuilding in fantasy - hers is slower and more intricate, threads of ideas winding through all of her work. The connections built between characters throughout all of her short stories and novels give a really deep sense of history that just gets deeper the more you re [...]

    It's probably not fair to only give this three stars when my only real issue with it is that I don't particularly care for horror. There's some really fantastic imagery and tight little portraits of characters that make these short stories very neatly done, and if you're into Lovecraft or a creeping sense of unease then I'd definitely pass these along.I found them a little light on actual plot to my taste - several of them came across more like paintings than stories, which is not what I'm gener [...]

  • Beastnessa

    Caitlín Kiernan does something a little unusual with her short story collections, in that she organizes them intentionally around a common theme, rather than just chronologically (i.e. "these are the stories I wrote in the past 5 years, here you go"). This is a great way to skip right over the main problem people cite with short collections: the hit-or-miss factor. Even the most omnivorous, egalitarian readers have their personal taste, and not all the short stories in a given collection will b [...]

  • Paige Ellen Stone

    CRK is simply the best in her genre and one of the best humans writing in any genre. The value of a collection of previously published short stories, gathered around a theme and devoted to one of her primary inspirations is that, I, the obsessive fan, don't have to hunt all over to find these great short works. I'm not that obsessive that i would hunt down all the periodicals and anthologies in which they originally appeared (but who knows, I may do that anyway). The joyful plus of this volume i [...]

    Caitlin R. Kiernan’s new collection To Charles Fort, With Love (Subterranean Press, 2005) is a collection of 13 brooding tales about the darker mysteries of life told with a lyrical intensity and a love of all things fortean. This collection is indebted to Lovecraft and Charles Fort in ways that made me very happy to be reading them. An excellent collection that makes me want to go and find her novels and give them a try. I wouldn't call it horror, its more in the stream of fabulists like Powe [...]

  • Terence

    Kiernan nicely characterizes the spirit of this collection in the afterword to “Nor the Demons Down Under the Sea,” where she writes:This is one of those stories which takes very seriously my belief that dark fiction dealing with inexplicable should, itself, present to the reader a certain inexplicability. It’s not about resolution nor understanding, but that brief, disturbing contact which usually characterizes actual paranormal encounters. (p. 232)Recommended.

    What to say besides that Caitlin R. Kiernan is a fantastic author. I first became aware of her work after reading the short story "Onion," published in an anthology edited by Ellen Datlow and Terri Windling. "Onion" instantly cemented her reputation as a top-notch writer. This collection is on the same par, and each page of it is a treasure.

  • Doug

    I read only two stories from this collection. Kiernan gives some sense of the mysteries referred to by the late great Charles Fort as the "damned data"--those annoying facts which might expand our awareness of what this reality is, if we drop the biases and filters of our cultural programming. Anyway, the fiction itself wasn't so revelatory but I applaud the effort and the honoring of Fort.

  • Josh Hesterman

    Lovecraftian with an extra dash of intelligibility and wit, this volume treads the line between the dark worlds we inhabit with graceful ease, and is a great addition to the subtler modern horrors I adore!

  • Karl

    This is copy 201 of 250 signed numbered copies signed by the author.

  • Eddie Watkins

    I hate to be ungenerous but I just didn't think these stories were that good. Good ideas, yes, but too verbose, and maybe too in-your-face. But I will give it another try some day down the road.

  • Jeannie Sloan

    What a wonderful book! I can really see how the author has matured through the years. There is less teen angst here and more mature plots. Great book.

  • Soccermom174

    it should make a second book because it was very interesting to read
