University of Minnesota Press just finalized the cover design for my anthology, I Must Not Think Bad Thoughts: Drive-By Essays On American Dread, American Dreams.

It’s breathtaking.

The stunning photograph is by Joanna Ebenstein of Morbid Anatomy fame; the 19th-century mannequin with crow’s-foot cracks is from the collection of Evan Michelson, co-owner of Obscura Antiques & Oddities, scholar-in-residence at the Morbid Anatomy Library, and, not incidentally, co-star of the Discovery Channel unreality show, Oddities.

The book’s contents, with all due immodesty, are just as unsettling. Reassuringly unsettling.If you know what I mean. And I think you do.
