Lance Olsen (born October 14, 1956) is an American writer known for his experimental, lyrical, fragmentary, cross-genre narratives that question the limits of historical knowledge.

HIDEOUS BEAUTIES is a collection of a dozen outrageous fictions, each based on a photograph, painting, sketch, collage, or assemblage by an equally outrageous artist (Hans Bellmer, Ed Kienholz, Joel-Peter Witkin, et alia), that explores the amphibious edge where language and image splice.

Death is a village of mermaids, suburbia a hunchbacked dwarf at the door who just won't go away, identity a self that can't stop cleaving, millennial sex a radical form of digestion.

In other words, Lance Olsen is at it again, and with a vengeance, inviting us into his absurd, unsettling, tender, and formally disruptive fever-dream worlds so that we might wake up, and wake up changed.

Strange, beautiful artwork adorns this creepy classic bizarro collection. Walk in the world of a waking dream, an odd, hypnotic prose that draws you in like a flytrap. This is quality literature my friends... and a book you won't soon forget.

I read all twelve stories in one sitting. This was great. I feel like I have been looking for an author like this for a long time. Sometimes when you read I guess the author's style goes perfectly with the way you read and interpret. I had this experience with this author. I would reccommend this collection to anyone. Also his wife does some pretty cool art. There are some awesome stories here. Everyone should at least try this book.

Quirky stories from a former academic (or so the rumor has it), I had from page one to the last page. The visuals really added a special effect. "Out there" stuff but not TOO out there, if you know what I mean. For something different, I recommend this.
