Subterranean Press. Burton, MI; Subterranean Press; 2003. Poppy Z. Brite is a master of the short form. In her newest gathering (and first collection since 1998) you'll find everything from stories with an alternate world Poppy as the coroner of New Orleans ("Oh Death, Where is Thy Spatula?" "Marisol"), to a traditional Halloween story ("Lantern Marsh"), to one published as a hard-to-find chapbook ("Pansu"), to a brand-new novella related to her upcoming novel, Liquor. (This is not an excerpt; it stands alone.) Even if you're a huge Poppy Z. Brite fan, you're certain to have missed many of these. The Devil You Know is available exclusively from Subterranean Press. Contents: The Devil You Know, O Death, Where Is Thy Spatula?, Lantern Marsh, Nothing Of Him That Doth Fade, The Ocean, Marisol, Poivre, Pansu, Burn, Baby, Burn, System Freeze, Bayou de la Mere, The Heart of New Orleans, A Season in Heck. 1st edition hardcover, issued as a SIGNED/LIMITED edition. Fine in fine dj. OUT OF PRINT FROM THE PUBLISHER.
