Rhapsody: Notes on Strange Fictions

by Hal Duncan
Release date: April 2014
Type: other fiction
Genres: non-fiction

Acclaimed author and critic Hal Duncan turns his analytic eye towards the development and current state of speculative fiction in the pages of Rhapsody. Duncan's trademark wry humor and suffer-no-fools approach to critiquing the genre  will make this book more than a resource for students of the field — anyone who enjoys reading tales of the fantastical and strange can find Duncan's insight worthwhile to read again and again.

"Rhapsody, though it is Duncan's first long-form critical work, is a strong and elegant - and sometimes wickedly crass - project, complexly argued and incisive while also managing to remain eminently readable and engaging." — Brit Mandelo for Tor.com

"Hal Duncan's Rhapsody is a quicksilver journey through the aesthetic consciousness of one of our most passionate and insightful masters of the form. This book will rightly take its place with Disch's The Dreams Our Stuff Is Made Of as a seminal critical text of speculative fiction." — Will Ludwigsen, author of In Search Of and Others
