The Physics of Imaginary Objects, in fifteen stories and a novella, offers a very different kind of short fiction, blending story with verse to evoke fantasy, allegory, metaphor, love, body, mind, and nearly every sensory perception. Weaving in and out of the space that connects life and death in mysterious ways, these texts use carefully honed language that suggests a newfound spirituality.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"It looks like prose to the eye, but it's memorable for the beauty and rhythm of the language, and it longs to be read aloud. . . Some stories in the collection have a traditional structure, but their magic is still in the poetry."
"--Wall Street Journal"


"One of the best [collections of fiction] I've read in a very long time. Reach out into the darkness and take its hand, fall in love with the shadows, and open yourself up to the unknown."
"--The Nervous Breakdown"


"Occasionally you stumble across a piece of literary fiction so eloquent in its style, honest in its material, and direct in its approach that it resonates with you days, weeks, years after you read it. 'The Physics of Imaginary Objects' is one of these intelligent, enlightening, and brazen books that you'll want to place on your shelf at eye-level so you will remember to keep picking it up. Hall's poetic style and articulate precision give this book a revolutionary quality. It nudges you along with an air of solemn importance and modest wisdom. Expertly composed and awesomely beautiful, Hall's hybrid of poetry and prose is neither sparse nor excessive, sentimental nor detached, diffident nor ostentatious."
"--Newpages.com"


"This enigmatic collection comprises curious musings on the convergence of the natural and human worlds. [Delivers] atmospheric and dreamlike stories sure to fascinate."
"--Publishers Weekly"
