"[B.C. Edwards] is a writer possessed of a quicksilver anarchic imagination and I recommend his fiction highly to all and sundry."—Patrick McGrath

From "My Recipe for the Best Tuna Salad in the World":


I've finished clearing out the apartment, you boy-hungry mongoloid. The last of your things are in the vestibule. I'd come pick them up soon, as I'm sure you're aware, the front door won't shut completely and the glass has been broken in and so the rain is doing a number on that collection of forty-fives you inherited from your father but never got around to playing a single one of.

Meanwhile, as requested, here is that recipe for tuna salad that you've enjoyed so much over all of these apparently bitter years.

Every story in The Aversive Clause has its own unique world: the quiet moments of a couple's destruction as one inexorably turns into a monster, a girl trapped in a tree at the end of the world, acrobats hired to tumble at an oil tycoon's birthday, an entire city come to life to terrorize a dwarf.

B.C. Edwards is the author of the forthcoming novella Knucklebone and is the prose and audio editor at Pax Americana. He received his MFA from The New School. He is a regular contributor to BOMBlog, FAQNP, and the Brooklyn Review. His most recent work can be found in Red Line Blues, LyreLyre, Sink Review, FOOD I CORP, as well as Hobart, which nominated him for a 2012 Pushcart Prize. His short story "Illfit" is being adapted into a piece by the Royal Ballet of Flanders. He is also a Literary Death Match champion and has the medal to prove it. His forthcoming short story collection The Aversive Clause won the 2011 Hudson Prize.
