New: Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes by Claude Lalumière

Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes by Claude Lalumière

Cover by Marc Tessier

Just out in paperback and ebook formats, a collection of dark and sensuous fiction from “Montreal’s own master of fantastic fiction” (RoverArts.com).

Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes: Twenty-five dark stories that span a daring breadth of genres. In these noir tales that unfold at the edge of realism, mythic nocturnes from impossible pasts, and disquietingly intimate stories of speculative fiction, Claude Lalumière explores our collective and intertwined obsessions with sex and death.

“In Nocturnes and Other Nocturnes Claude Lalumière plumbs the deep trenches of yearning, fear and the agonies of unfulfilled needs.” – from the introduction by Garry Kilworth

“Claude Lalumière’s stories are dark, mordant, precisely formed.” Lucius Shepard

“Lalumière’s protagonists exhibit the sorts of yearnings and proclivities that our most respected social institutions teach us to mistrust: erotic energy, artistic mania, idiosyncratic mysticism, impassioned empathy with the natural world.” James Morrow

“Claude Lalumière’s extravagant imagination is matched by only two other qualities: his compassion for his characters, and his sparkling facility with language.” Paul Di Filippo

“Claude Lalumière has a poet’s sensibility. He suggests; never overstates.” Richard Calder

“Claude Lalumière’s stories are delicious.” Anna Tambour

“Lalumière’s fiction is indeed fueled by a rich inner psychology … it is potent, memorable stuff.” The New York Review of Science Fiction
