    From the author of Between Everything and Nothing, “an inspired collection of twenty stories, brilliant in its command of tone and narrative perspective” (Kirkus Reviews, starred review). 
     
    Demons in the Spring is a collection of twenty short stories by Joe Meno, author of the smash hits The Boy Detective Fails and Hairstyles of the Damned, with illustrations by twenty artists from the fine art, graphic art, and comic book worlds—Todd Baxter, Kelsey Brookes, Ivan Brunetti, Charles Burns, Nick Butcher, Steph Davidson, Evan Hecox, Kim Hiorthoy, Paul Hornschemeier, Cody Hudson, Caroline Hwang, kozyndan, Geoff McFetridge, Anders Nilsen, Laura Owens, Archer Prewitt, Jon Resh, Jay Ryan, Souther Salazar, Rachell Sumpter, and Chris Uphues. 
     
    In these stories, oddly modern moments occur in the most familiar of public places—from offices to airports to schools to zoos to emergency rooms. A young girl refuses to go anywhere unless she’s dressed as a ghost. A bank robbery in Stockholm goes terribly wrong. A teacher becomes enamored with the students in his school’s Model United Nations club. A couple is affected by a strange malady. A miniature city begins to develop in a young woman’s chest. These inventive stories are hilarious, heartbreaking, and unusual. 
     
    A portion of the author’s proceeds from the book will go directly to benefit 826 CHICAGO, a nonprofit tutoring center, part of the national organization of tutoring centers with branches in San Francisco, Los Angeles, New York City, and Seattle.

    While many elements of civilized culture provided much comic fodder for Mark Twain, detectives occupied a portion of his observations and writing for a time. The story of the Stolen White Elephant, though entirely preposterous, is rumored to be modeled after real life efforts of an actual police department who misplaced the body of a deceased victim. This audio story will leave you laughing out loud.

    “An ingenious and appealing collection of linked stories” about archaic medical procedures, centuries of history, and one remarkable New York City family (Chicago Sun-Times).   In 1664, Dr. Olaf van Schuler flees the Old World and arrives in New Amsterdam with his crazy mother, two bags of medical implements, and a carefully guarded book. He is the first in what will become a long line of peculiar physicians.   Plagued by madness and guided by an intense desire to cure human affliction, each generation of this unusual family is driven by the science of its day: spontaneous combustion, phrenology, animal magnetism, electrical shock treatment, psychosurgery, genetic research. As they make their way in the world, New York City is also evolving—from the dark and rough days of the seventeenth century to the towering, frenetic metropolis of today.   “Good literary fiction about science and scientists is hard to find, probably because it is so hard to write. . . . Fortunately there are some writers who bridge the gap well: Richard Powers, Andrea Barrett, and Alan Lightman, to name a few. And, now, Kirsten Menger-Anderson, whose debut, Doctor Olaf van Schuler’s Brain, offers sharp, entertaining, moving, and above all provocative stories about doctors and their work and raises profound questions about the role of medicine in American life. . . . Darkly funny, often sad, frequently frightening, and sometimes hopeful, they are the product of a gifted literary writer.” —The Boston Globe   “A fascinating kaleidoscope ride across generations of physicians and their patients . . . In this quirky, moving collection, Menger-Anderson illustrates the power of medicine—and family.” —San Francisco Chronicle   “An unforgettable literary experience.” —Mary Roach, author of Stiff

    The short stories were written during and about World War, I am often overshadowed by the excellent verse of the War Poets. 
    Yet the short story is perhaps their equal in other ways.  Within these succinct little time capsules of words are captured ideas, attitudes, feelings, and life that is expressed in a few pages just as movingly, imaginatively, and tellingly as in any other form. 
    Some of these stories will be familiar but some may not.  From Virginia Woolf to Katharine Mansfield and John Buchan to C. E. Montague various writing styles try to make sense of this world at war. 
    Some may do so directly and some obliquely.  Some speak of class others of the masses but all reveal their author’s intent and their mastery of war and its effects and consequences upon the human condition as told through their words.
