Laird has this to say:
"Knife Fight and Other Struggles is a remarkable collection that drops some hi-fidelity weirdness on the scene . Nickle's prose has gorgeous lines of symmetry and a steel spine."
It'll be out in October 2014, available in the usual places. Readers anxious to get it first can, of course, pre-order it here.
