Winner of FC2’s American Book Review/Ronald Sukenick Innovative Fiction Prize   A monogrammed cube appears in your town. Your landlord cheats you out of first place in the annual Christmas decorating contest. You need to learn how to love and care for your mate—a paring knife. These situations and more reveal the wondrous play and surreal humor that make up the stories in Amelia Gray’s stunning collection of stories: Museum of the Weird.   Acerbic wit and luminous prose mark these shorts, while sickness and death lurk amidst the humor.

Museum of the Weird invites you into its hallways, then beguiles, bewitches, and reveals a writer who has discovered a manner of storytelling all her own.
