These children who come at you with knives, and other fairy tales by Jim Knipfel ( Book )
2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 377 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A masterful storyteller whose memoirs and novels have earned him widespread acclaim, this is Knipfel's first foray into the short story, and he delivers in spades: this wickedly dark satire on the notion of happily ever after turns the traditional fairy tale on its head. Among the array of lonely losers wallowing in discontent, the enterprising reader of this volume may meet a talking chicken who learns the world has little patience for intelligence, a foul-mouthed gnome set on world domination, and a magical snowman wrestling with the horror of being alive
The buzzing : a novel by Jim Knipfel ( Book )
6 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and held by 357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Meet Roscoe Baragon, crack reporter at a metropolitan newspaper. Baragon covers what is affectionately called the Kook Beat, where the loonies call and tell him in meticulously deranged detail what it's like to live in their bizarre and lonely world. Lately Baragon's been writing stories about voodoo curses and alien abductions; about fungus-riddled satellites falling to earth and thefts of plumbing fixtures from SRO hotels by strange aquatic-looking creatures. Not exactly New York Times material. Maybe it's the radioactive corpse that puts him over the edge. Or maybe it's the guy who claims to have been kidnapped by the state of Alaska. But Baragon is now convinced that a vast conspiracy is under way that could take the whole city down - something so deeply strange that it could be straight out of one of the old Japanese monster movies that he watches every night before he goes to sleep. But stuff like this only happens in the movies. Right?

The blow-off by Jim Knipfel ( Book )
2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 268 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"When a local drunk is mugged near the toxic Gowanus Canal by 'a hulking, hairy beast who smells really bad,' Hank Kalabander thinks nothing of blaming the assault on the legendary Bigfoot. His sardonic crime blotter for The Hornet, a local Brooklyn rag, often gleefully recounts the tragedies that befall the borough's dimmer residents. But when an upstart reporter from The Eagle, a tabloid paper, lifts his piece and implicates Bigfoot in two more attacks, the crimes become local news fodder and the hunt for the 'Gowanus Beast' takes off"--From publisher description

Heart of glass by Werner Herzog ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2005 in German and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This visionary film with a resemblance to a folk tale is set around 1800. It begins with a prophet shepherd describing the Apocalypse. In the valley below, the foreman of a glass factory has died and with him the secret of producing an exquisite glass ruby from which the whole community lives. In his search for the formula, the factory owner is overcome with a madness that engulfs the village. This is the most extreme expression of Herzog's disillusioned romanticism. A trance-like atmosphere pervades the film; most of the cast were hypnotised before each day's shooting. The screenplay is based on the second chapter of a novel, The Hour of Death, by Herbert Achternbusch, which is in turn based on a Bavarian folk legend
