McSweeny's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales by Michael Chabon

McSweeny's Mammoth Treasury of Thrilling Tales

by Michael Chabon

Title Details

Unabridged Edition
Running Time
7 Hrs. 38 Min.


Michael Chabon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Amazing Adventures of Kavalier and Clay, has joined forces with the editors of McSweeney's Quarterly Concern to create a collection of action-packed short stories by some of today's most talented names in literature. Elmore Leonard's telling of life for a fifteen-year-old boy and his dad in 1920's Oklahoma in "How Carlos Webster Changed His Name to Carl and Became a Famous Oklahoma Lawman" shifts easily to the happenings of an adolescent's unexpected run-in with the future in Nick Hornby's "Otherwise Pandemonium." In these and other stories, including Stephen King's "The Tale of Gray Dick," Michael Crichton's "Blood Doesn't Come Out," "Up the Mountain Coming Down Slowly" by Dave Eggers, Harlan Ellison's "Goodbye to All That" (read by Harlan Ellison, himself), Rick Moody's "The Albertine Notes," and "The Martian Agent, A Planetary Romance" by Michael Chabon, the authors return to the traditions of pulp fiction, spinning adventurous, suspense-ridden tales destined to keep their audience on the edges of their seats.
