“Elation, compulsion, exploration, love and exquisitely timed bullying, a lascivious oyster, a man called Eggplant, the dangers of smelling like honey pudding, the enticement of innocent toadlets, the unending day of deadness. The daughter of a part-time magician and a Las Vegas showgirl turns to science. Destiny points a young man to brassiere design. Suddenly orphaned siblings try to protect their most vulnerable. Fortunes craze in neighbourhoods living cheek-by-jowl. Unintendeds abound, as life cavorts in all its unclassifiable contrariness.”
The Finest Ass in the Universe by Anna Tambour! Introduction by Jeffrey Ford.
“On my short list of beloved idiosyncrasts, which includes R.A. Lafferty and Avram Davidson, there is still no one else the least bit like Anna Tambour.”
– Marc Laidlaw
“Anna Tambour is a rogue punk-prophetess whose writings not only stray from the beaten path; some of them are so far out there that you can hear the distant drums of strange story-tribes being awakened by her prose.”
– I. O’Reilly, British Fantasy Society review
“A collection of strange and beautiful stories” — “An astonishingly original and entertaining collection”
