About this item

Even as Stephen Graham Jones generates a dizzying range of brilliant fiction, his work has remained strikingly absent from scholarly conversations about Native and western American literature, owing to his unapologetic embrace of popular genres such as horror and science fiction. Steeped in dense narrative references, literary and historical allusions, and experimental postmodern stylings, his fiction informs a broad array of literary and popular conversations.

The Fictions of Stephen Graham Jones offers the first collection of scholarship on Jones’s ever-expanding oeuvre. The diverse methodologies that inform these essays—from Native American critical theory to poststructuralism and gothic noirism—illuminate the exciting complexity of Jones’s narrative worlds while positioning his works within broader conversations in literary studies and popular culture. Jones challenges at every turn the notions of what constitutes Native American literature and what it means to be a Native American writer. Contributing editor Billy J. Stratton foregrounds this heavily contested question of identity and its ongoing relevance to readers and critics.
