Best of Gigantic: Stories from the First First Five Years, 2009–14


Best of Gigantic: Stories from the First Five Years, 2009–14, Gigantic Books, 2014.

Included are parables, fairy tales, monologues, and stories in which one might encounter a talking deer or a juggling god; a bratty cellist or a chatty head flight attendant; a body-contorting bank robber or a Nike-wearing mob boss and his personal trainer-cum-bodyguard; emperors, dictators, and would-be despots; servers, salespeople, and recently dismissed postal workers. Occasionally you won't come across anyone at all, just a list of ways you could greet a stranger—or end up in an asylum.

Featuring fiction from Nico Alvarado, Selena Anderson, Marie-Helene Bertino, Dan Bevacqua, Anelise Chen, Joshua Cohen, John Colasacco, Jon Cotner, Lydia Davis, Rebecca Evanhoe, Jean Ferry, Sasha Fletcher, I. Fontana, Avital Gad-Cykman, Anya Groner, John Haskell, Kevin Hyde, Mitchell S. Jackson, Margo Jefferson, Etgar Keret, Michael Kimball, Carmen Lau, Kitty Liang, Robert Lopez, Ottessa Moshfegh, Iris Moulton, Stephen O'Connor, Ed Park, Thomas Pierce, Joe Mungo Reed, Helen Klein Ross, Paul Scheerbart, Sparrow, Lauren Spohrer, Saša Stanišić, Marguerite W. Sullivan, Lynne Tillman, Anthony Tognazzini, Deb Olin Unferth, Laura van den Berg, Robert Walser, and Diane Williams.
