Acerca de


THE REALITY MACHINE is Cliff Burns' first major release in seven years, a compilation of fifteen tales that stake out bold, new territory and reaffirm his status as one of the most daring, provocative and mind-bending prose stylists of our time. This volume contains stories that have appeared in seven major anthologies, including THE 20 (All-Time) BEST SF STORIES, THE YEAR'S BEST FANTASY & HORROR and TESSERACTS IV & V. Other offerings in this collection have been featured in leading literary and genre magazines in Canada, the United States and elsewhere.

Burns' surreal, sharply satirical and often hallucinogenic short fiction has evoked comparisons to the likes of Philip K. Dick, Harlan Ellison, J.G. Ballard, William S. Burroughs and Samuel Beckett...but his voice is entirely his own. Whether his subject matter is sex, politics, drugs or rock 'n roll (all figure prominently in Cliff Burns' literary canon), his unique take on the near future has earned a cult following among fans of the macabre and bizarre...and generous praise from the likes of Timothy Findley, Kim Newman and Andrew Vachss. Of Burns' first, full-length collection, SEX & OTHER ACTS OF THE IMAGINATION (1991), Mr. Findley wrote:

"This is a book of hot dreams and frozen nightmares. It floats on a plane few writers achieve, where the imagery is raw but the insights are tender. The people in these stories will stay with me for a long time to come."

From the Publisher:

Black Dog Press is pleased to announce the release of Cliff Burns' latest short story collection, THE REALITY MACHINE. Cliff Burns is one of this country's leading fantasists, an infernal combination of the literary and the truly bizarre...and horrific. His fiction destroys once firmly held preconceptions and disorients with its language and imagery. Publicists once crowed that 2001: A Space Oddysey was "the ultimate trip". Which makes, one supposes, THE REALITY MACHINE the penultimate trip, a soul-shaking journey into places The Twilight Zone only hinted at, not-so-distant futures where:

-goblins exist but the real monsters are far more human in appearance -a crook with a face only a true midnight movie maven could love charms and terrorizes Tinseltown -the end of the world finally happens...but everyone sleeps right through it

THE REALITY MACHINE also features "New World Man", a story selected by German editor Jonathan Gates for inclusion in an anthology of the 20 BEST SCIENCE FICTION STORIES of all time.

Cliff Burns' fictions are disorienting, trippy, possibly even mind-altering; they are psychedelic tonics for a troubled time, acid tests for the coming age.
