Fiction. From the author of Palaces, a new collection of short fiction about identity, undergrounds (symbolic and literal), art reenactment, and unexamined possibilities. MASTERWORKS will beguile, amuse, frustrate, frighten, and in the end, connect. It will live up to its name.

"MASTERWORKS is an absolute weird original. It's a frantic, funny tumbling of culture into the abyss--or maybe just a catastrophic date in an Olive Garden. Either way, read it at your peril and pleasure."--Amber Sparks

"Jacobs' work is in tune with, and influenced by, an eclectic range of high and low culture--whether it's Queen, or cosmic horror, or the Olive Garden, or the masterpieces of great artists--which ground his work in a reality that we can recognize...The stories that comprise MASTERWORKS AND OTHER STORIES might be uncanny, fragmentary, and avant-garde, but they're never dull. I'm excited to see what Jacobs does next."--Ian Mond, Locus Magazine

"I found MASTERWORKS to be a fascinating, challenging collection of structural experiments, a kind of narrative exploration of chaos theory. ...Reader, I was delighted and discomposed."--Amanda Krupman, Gertrude Press
