Stories of the mysterious and macabre from "Canada's answer to Stephen King" (Helen Marshall, author of Gifts for the One Who Comes After).

In this follow-up to his award-winning debut collection, Monstrous Affections, David Nickle stretches the boundaries of horror into a sphere of "uncertainty, of helplessness, of traditions and change. . . . The stories are sui generis in presentation, veering from the discombobulating nightmare that is 'Basements' to the squid-laden eco-satire 'Wylde's Kingdom' to the sci-fi love of 'Love Means Forever.' When it comes to this book, only two things are certain; the stories never travel where you expect, and David Nickle is a monumental talent" (Publishers Weekly, starred review).

"Don't make the mistake of overlooking the talent based on preconceptions of what horror might be-read one of these stories and see if you aren't hooked. . . . Believe the hype. David Nickle is very good." -The Globe and Mail

"Anyone even vaguely interested in horror or weird fiction owes it to themselves to give David Nickle a look, and Knife Fight and Other Struggles is a great place to start." -The Winnipeg Free Press

"Knife Fight and Other Struggles is a remarkable collection that drops some hi-fidelity weirdness on the scene. Nickle's prose has gorgeous lines of symmetry and a steel spine." -Laird Barron, Shirley Jackson Award-winning author

"Dynamic imagination, masterful writing of both the everyday and the nightmare, characters that breathe, and a dark sense of humor make [Knife Fight and Other Struggles] a keeper." -Jeffrey Ford, World Fantasy Award-winning author

MEDIA REVIEWS
"David Nickle is my favourite kind of writer. His stories are dark, wildly imaginative, and deeply compassionate-even when they're laced with righteous anger. He's at the top of his game in this new book of short stories, and that's about as good as it gets." -Nathan Ballingrud, Shirley Jackson Award-winning author of North American Lake Monsters

"David Nickle is Canada's answer to Stephen King. His writing charms even as it slices like a blade between the ribs: sharp, subtle, and never less than devastating." -Helen Marshall, British Fantasy Award-winning author of Hair Side, Flesh Side
