Gahan Wilson is one of the masters of macabre cartooning, ranked with Charles Addams, Edward Gorey, and Gary Larson. He is also a masterful storyteller. From the horror of "blot" to the gentle unease of "Campfire Story," from the classic oral-horror style of "The Marble Boy" to the science fiction scares of "It Twineth Round Thee in Thy Joy," the collection in The Cleft and Other Odd Tales shows Wilson at his very best.
Originally published in Playboy, Omni, and notable anthologies such as Again, Dangerous Visions, Wilson's short fiction is gathered here for the first time. The 24 stories are each accompainied by an original, full-page illustration done especially for this volume.
Gahan Wilson has won two World Fantasy Awards and the Bram Stoker Award for Life Achievement. His most recent cartoon collection is Gahan Wilson's Even Weirder. His latest CD-ROM is Gahan Wilson's The Ultimate Haunted House.
