The Deaths of Henry King

By (author) Brian Evenson, By (author) Jesse Ball, Illustrated by Lilli Carré

<p>In <em>The Deaths of Henry King</em>, the hapless Henry King, as advertised, dies. Not just once or even twice, but seven dozen times, each death making way for a new demise, moving from the comic to the grim to the absurd to the transcendent and back again. With text by Jesse Ball and Brian Evenson complimented by Lilli Carré's macabre, gravestone-rubbing-style art, Henry King's ends are brought to a vividly absurd life. </p> <p><strong>Brian Evenson</strong> is the author of a dozen books of fiction, most recently the story collection <em>Windeye</em> and the novel <em>Immobility</em> (both finalists for a Shirley Jackson Award). His novel <em>Last Days</em> won the ALA's RUSA award for Best Horror Novel of 2009. His novel <em>The Open Curtain</em> was a finalist for an Edgar Award and an International Horror Guild Award. He lives in Providence, RI, where he teaches in Brown University's literary arts department. </p> <p><strong>Jesse Ball</strong> is the author of five novels, including the forthcoming <em>A Cure for Suicide</em> (Pantheon, 2015), <em>Silence Once Begun</em>, and several others. He has received numerous awards, including a 2014 NEA Creative Writing Fellowship and the 2008 <em>The Paris Review</em>'s Plimpton Prize. He gives classes on lucid dreaming and lying in the SAIC's MFA Writing program. </p> <p><strong>Lilli Carré</strong> is an artist living in Chicago. She has created several books of comics, including <em>Heads or Tails</em> (Fantagraphics), and her first children's book, <em>Tippy and the Night Parade</em> (Toon Books). Her work has appeared in <em>The New Yorker</em>, <em>The New York Times</em>, and <em>Best American Comics</em>.</p>
