Publisher Description

Sides

by Peter Straub


Over twenty years in the making, SIDES represents the first ever collection

of non-fiction by bestselling author Peter Straub. Featuring introductions,

essays, afterwords, and even a "frivolity"‹along with the collected works of

Putney Tyson Ridge, Straub's "self-invented human speed bump and alter

ego"‹this collection presents a rare glimpse into the author's tastes and

personal musings on topics ranging from The Stepford Wives and Dracula to

Lawrence Block and Stephen King.


Also included is "The Fantasy of Everyday Life", Straub's Guest-of-Honor

speech at the 1998 International Conference of the Fantastic in the Arts,

and "Mom", an essay that appeared in a book that combined short stories

written by mother-son partnerships with essays written by male writers about

their mothers. The "frivolity" here‹"Why Electricman Lives in New York"‹was

written for an anthology celebrating the twenty-fifth anniversary of New

York Is Book Country.


This long awaited collection closes with Putney Tyson Ridge's reviews and

commentaries on every Peter Straub book published since the 1970s.


SIDES is a unique and exclusive Cemetery Dance book, with no other editions

planned anywhere in the world!
