"Ben Loory's stories are little gifts, strange and moving and wonderfully human. I devoured this book in one sitting." --Ransom Riggs, author of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children

A dazzling new collection of stories from the critically acclaimed author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for The Day

Ben Loory returns with a second collection of timeless tales, inviting us to enter his worlds of whimsical fantasy, deep empathy, and playful humor, in the signature voice that drew readers to his highly praised first collection. In stories that eschew literary realism, Loory's characters demonstrate richly imagined and surprising perspectives, whether they be dragons or swordsmen, star-crossed lovers or long-lost twins, restaurateurs dreaming of Paris or cephalopods fixated on space travel. In propulsive language that brilliantly showcases Loory's vast imagination, Tales of Falling and Flying expands our understanding of how fiction can work and is sure to cement his reputation as one of the most innovative short-story writers working today.
