Howard Waldrop. Winter Quarters. 2000.

Howard Waldrop. Winter Quarters. Original typescript with revisions in the author’s hand, marked for typesetting in red by Ellen Datlow, summer 2000.

Howard Waldrop is an American original, a brilliant author whose recognition has largely been among other writers and a small group of editors. He makes things happen like no one else can. “Winter Quarters,” a story of the cloning of extinct species and a small-time circus, one that “only had two mammoths,” includes a remarkable and utterly chilling one-page Brechtian vaudeville of the Holocaust.

No. 62.
