Avram Davidson

Posted by Mike on April 24, 2006

Got in a couple stragglers today, a mercilessly beat up copy of Jonathan Carroll's Land of Laughs and Avram Davidson's Everybody Has Somebody in Heaven, which happens to be a collection of stories related to his Jewish faith. I frequently get one intensely visceral feeling every time I start reading Avram's stuff, the tragedy that he is is still almost totally unknown, with a talent that ought to have put his oeuvre with the classics. Anyone in the dark, The Avram Davidson Treasury beckons. I was won over with the very first story I read, The Golem (in both of these titles), still one of my favorite short stories.

  1. Have you ever read the daily blog Jonathan Carroll keeps on his website? It’s astonishing.
