Kindle Crack: Ebook Deals from Bret Easton Ellis, Philip K Dick, Italo Calvino, and More

Bret Easton Ellis sales are pretty rare, but here’s one that features what is possibly his most famous work. American Psycho is a complete nightmare, and entirely required reading for anyone who likes dark and strange fiction. PKD was one of my favorite authors for quite a span, and this book is still one of my favorites

Kindle Crack: The Literary Edition, Featuring Thomas Pynchon, Umberto Eco, G. W. Sebald, and More

 The opening poem is a clever little lick based on the tune to “Off to See the Wizard” from The Wizard of Oz. The second features an interesting palate of shifting perspectives, but I haven’t been able to dig further yet. Helen Dewitt’s fiction reads sort of like David Foster Wallace’s, and I’m sure it’s a

Kindle Crack: Ebook Deals on Titles by Borges, Lispector, Bernhard and More

Borges, for me, is the original master of weird lit. His work is consistently puzzling, dazzling, and befuddling, and you shouldn’t let the fact that you’ve heard at least one literary snob name-drop him discourage you from pursuing his work with impassioned fervor. Everything he pens is gold, and Labyrinths for three bucks is definitely

Kindle Crack: Ebook Sales from Niel Gaiman, Clive Barker, Stanislaw Lem, and More

Svevo’s Zeno’s Conscience was fiercely advocated by James Joyce in its time, and you can sort of see why. Although it’s not a modernist hypertext like Ulysses and Finnegan’s Wake, it clearly habits the weird, transitory milieu of the early turn of the century. It’s one of the better “life-as-a-ridiculous-man” narratives (see Sartre’s Nausea), and it’s more than worth

Kindle Crack: Bird Box, Hill House, and Other Killer Ebooks You Can Snag Cheap

“Hey, it’s that one book that one movie on Netflix of the same title is based on!” Yes, it is. I’ve heard mixed reviews of the movie, and I know nothing about the book. It’s hot right now though, so why not? No reason not to snag it while it’s cheap. Now this one, I

Kindle Crack: Or Bookbub for Weirdos

I’m not overly familiar with Compass, although I own it. It’s supposedly a genius, eclectic work set to a dreamlike narrative; “dreamlike” + tons of accolades from almost everyone who’s read this thing = good enough for me. Besides, for two bucks? Why not? Nightwood is a brilliant, underpraised weird classic lauded by none other than T.
