In a world of cataclysm and unraveled time, a young woman's face, a misbegotten childhood in a Parisian brothel, and the fragment of a lost movie masterpiece are the only clues in a man's search for his past. Steve Erickson's Days Between Stations is the stunning, now classic dream-spec of our precarious age -- by turns beautiful and obsessed, haunted and hallucinated, in which lives erotically collide, the past ambushes the future, and forbidden secrets intercut with each other like the frames of a film.--P. [4] of cover

The pleasure of influence : conversations with American male fiction writers by Rob Trucks( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this collection of interviews, eleven of the most important American male fiction writers of our time - Pulitzer Prize winner Robert Olen Butler, National Book Award winner Charles Johnson, National Book Award nominees Thom Jones, Barry Hannah, and Stephen Dixon, as well as Russell Banks, Rick Moody, Chris Offutt, Stewart O'Nan, Steve Erickson, and Gordon Lish - candidly discuss the origin, process, and achievement of their own fiction. All of the writers in this collection are working with personal truths, particular to their experience, yet they operate within a defined referential tradition. The material is unmistakably their own, the way they tell the story is their own, but they are always mindful of the world that preceded them."--Jacket
Zeroville : a novel by Steve Erickson( )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On the same August day in 1969 that a crazed hippie "family" led by Charles Manson commits five savage murders in the canyons above Los Angeles, a young ex-communicated seminarian arrives with images of Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift--"the two most beautiful people in the history of the movies"--tattooed on his head. At once childlike and violent, Vikar is not a cineaste but "cineautistic," sleeping at night in the Roosevelt Hotel where he's haunted by the ghost of D. W. Griffith. Vikar has stepped into the vortex of a culture in upheaval: strange drugs that frighten him, a strange sexuality that consumes him, a strange music he doesn't understand. Over the course of the seventies and into the eighties, he pursues his obsession with film from one screening to the next and through a series of cinema-besotted conversations and encounters with starlets, burglars, guerrillas, escorts, teenage punks, and veteran film editors, only to discover a secret whose clues lie in every film ever made

Black clock 18( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In an age that defies the definitive, Black Clock 18 offers its version of the cinematic "director's cut." Most authors have buried in their cyber-catacombs the book that got away, or the less compromised version of the published magnum opus stained with the blood of those darlings every writer learns must be killed; this edition of Black Clock is filled with those cherished artistic detours that finally were abandoned for the sake of the whole. From an alternate version of Brian Evenson's The Open Curtain to an excised chapter of Aimee Bender's The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake to a deleted excerpt from Greil Marcus' The Shape of Things to Come to a newly reconsidered version of a Jonathan Lethem story that originally appeared in another journal to Rick Moody's "Thirteen Stories" that turned into another book entirely to Joanna Scott's "Untelling" of her upcoming novel, Black Clock 18 either represents the resurrection or provides the final resting place of editorial decisions regretted, rued and reconciled
