The Final Trick of Funnyman and Other Stories cover

    A writer of imagination and insight, Bruce Taylor delivers a collection of stories that amazes and intrigues.
    Terry Brooks
    The speciality of Bruce Taylor is brief, playful, bizarre stories that occupy the mysterious middle ground somewhere between fantasy and the surreal.
    Robert Silverberg

For more than 20 years, fantasist Bruce Taylor has been entertaining readers all over the world with his masterful blend of surrealism and magic realism. Now, for the first time, these short stories – published in, among others, New Dimensions, Twilight Zone and Pulphouse – have been collected, along with new work, in The Final Trick of Funnyman and Other Stories. From the vaguely sinister adventures of Mr M to the "Bradburyesque" boyhood exploits of Edward, Taylor's tales showcase an imagination at once intense and gentle, absurd and cutting.
