In this new collection from World Fantasy Award-winner Jeff VanderMeer, car accidents, Angkor Wat, dead whales, flower vendors, dogcatchers, classic television shows, frogs, and the moon are transformed by the author's imagination into something unique and magical. Showcaseing his Rhysling Award-winning poem "Flight," reprinted in Nebula Awards 30, The Day Dali Died also provides a selection of short-short fictions- including "Bullets and Airplanes," "The County Fair," and "How Benjobi Song Came to Rule Iphagenia" (original to this collection). From lost books to mythic journeys into the surreal, The Day Dali Died showcases VanderMeer's talent for both epiphany and precise detail.
