There are certain authors who I always read. If Jeffery Ford wrote a soup can label, I would read it; if Lisa Goldstein penned an ad for aspirin, I would seek it out. This is also true for the writing of Benjamin Rosenbaum, and I was delighted to get The Ant King and Other Stories, a compilation of many of his splendid works. Now I can revel in the beautiful words and wonderful weirdness that comes with a Rosenbaum piece.

From official release/information:

Book Description: "Urbane without being arch, sweet without being maudlin, mysterious without being cryptic."-Cory Doctorow, BoingBoing

A dazzling, postmodern debut collection of pulp and surreal fictions: a writer of alternate histories defends his patron's zeppelin against assassins and pirates; a woman transforms into hundreds of gumballs; an emancipated children's collective goes house hunting.
