SYNOPSIS

WHAT TO MAKE OF DR. BLACK, NOT PARTICULARLY THE MOST orthodox of heroes or anti-heroes? As written by Brendan Connell, Dr. Black seems to have always existed and yet be utterly unique. He is simultaneously learned and, in certain environments, a bit of a fool. He has some tastes that are quite normal and others that are outrageous. There is always a bit of comedy as a sting in the tail of the more serious stories, and a seeming encyclopedic knowledge on the author’s part of the comic pratfalls of yesteryear in others.

From Jeff Vandermeer's intro

REVIEW by Seregil of Rhiminee, Rising Shadow

Brendan Connell's new collection, The Metanatural Adventures of Dr. Black, is a collection of stories about Dr. Black, his life and his fascinating and strange adventures in different places. It's a unique collection - a literary feast of talent, imagination and style - that deserves to be read and praised by the readers.

Ben Peek-theurbansprawlproject.com-5 Stars

"At times slyly funny, at times surreal, and always with a deft hand at workplay, and a confident voice that is willing to break down the traditional structures of a story and a paragraph, it is a hugely strong book by Connell."
