A young man at loose ends finds he cannot look away from his new lover's alien gaze. A young woman out of time seeks her old lover in the cold spaces between the stars. The fleeing worshippers of an ancient and jealous deity seek solace in an unsuspecting New World congregation. In a suburban nursery, a demon with a grudge and a lonely exorcist face off for what could be the last time. And when a big city mayor who delineates his mandate by the slash of a blade faces an unexpected challenger . . . it turns into a struggle that threatens to consume everything. In KNIFE FIGHT AND OTHER STRUGGLES, David Nickle follows his awardwinning debut collection MONSTROUS AFFECTIONS with a new set of dark tales that span space, time and genre. "If the Group of Seven had worked in prose instead of oils- and if they'd been raised on a diet of Lynch and Cronenberg- they might have come close to what David Nickle fishes from his id for our edification." Hugowinning author Peter Watts, from the Introduction
