Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes (Paperback)


Available from Our Distributor (Not in Store)
Twenty-five dark stories that span a daring breadth of genres - by the author of Objects of Worship and The Door to Lost Pages, which Publishers' Weekly calls "intensely memorable" and "insanely imaginative."

In these noir tales that unfold at the edge of realism, mythic nocturnes from impossible pasts, and disquietingly intimate stories of speculative fiction, Claude Lalumi re explores our collective and intertwined obsessions with sex and death.

"In Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes Claude Lalumi re plumbs the deep trenches of yearning, fear and the agonies of unfulfilled need." - from the introduction by Garry Kilworth

"Claude Lalumi re's stories are dark, mordant, precisely formed." Lucius Shepard

"Lalumi re's protagonists exhibit the sorts of yearnings and proclivities that our most respected social institutions teach us to mistrust: erotic energy, artistic mania, idiosyncratic mysticism, impassioned empathy with the natural world." James Morrow

"Claude Lalumi re's extravagant imagination is matched by only two other qualities: his compassion for his characters, and his sparkling facility with language." Paul Di Filippo

"Claude Lalumi re has a poet's sensibility. He suggests; never overstates." Richard Calder

"Claude Lalumi re's stories are delicious." Anna Tambour

"Montreal's own master of fantastic fiction."

"Lalumi re's fiction is indeed fueled by a rich inner psychology ... it is potent, memorable stuff." The New York Review of Science Fiction
