AMERICAN GOLIATH - World Fantasy Award finalist - "An inspired novel"--TIME Mag.

ReAnimus Press is proud to present AMERICAN GOLIATH:

World Fantasy Award Finalist for Best Novel!

AMERICAN GOLIATH is based on the story of America's greatest hoax. It's written by an author called "one of the country's most accomplished authors" by Kirkus Reviews--the praise for this book is among the highest I've seen for any book (Time Magazine, LA Times, all sorts of SF authors, e.g. "A wonderfully engrossing read" and "life-enhancing" from no less than Michael Moorcock)--so if you like fantasy humor that's a bit bawdy you've got to check it out.



Gaze upon the ancient giant turned to stone! Hear him speak!

In 1868, George Hull heard a sermon proclaiming America to be the land of Genesis, home to the "Giants in the earth." Scion of a wealthy New York family of cigar makers, Hull set out to prove that sermon right.

And thus was born the Cardiff Giant. "Found" on Stubby Newell's farm in Cardiff, New York, in 1869, Goliath soon created more of a stir than any of P.T.Barnum's great exhibits — which, of course, piqued the interest of the Great Showman himself, who was never to be outdone when it came to separating suckers from their riches...

The tale of the (sentient!) Goliath and his "creator" is a witty, raucous, and bawdy tale of American life at its finest.

Step right up and see! You'll be glad you did!

American Goliath

PRAISE FOR AMERICAN GOLIATH

An inspired novel.
—TIME Magazine


A masterpiece...arguably this year's best novel.
—Kirkus Reviews.

A wonderfully engrossing read. It is an enlightenting and life-enhancing read. It is the best novel of a very fine writer and I recommend it to everyone who has given up of ever again being entertained at such a high level of aspiration.
—SFWA Grandmaster Michael Moorcock

If Mark Twain and Isaac Bashevis Singer went on a bender and collaborated on a novel, it would be American Goliath! Harvey Jacobs's masterpiece is a bawdy, joyous romp. It's a wonderful book.
—Jack Dann

Like Doctorow's Ragtime and George R. R. Martin's Fevre Dream, it's one of those totally realized, hallucinated pasts. It's swell.
—Howard Waldrop

Bells clanging, lights aflash, the plot's ball bangs and rebounds. . . . A wonderful and wonderfully funny book.
James Sallis
LA Times

His characters are haunting. . . . I have rarely enjoyed finding a writer as much as I have enjoyed my own discovery of Jacobs.
Robert Cromie
Chicago Tribune


He manages to satirize our all-too-human foibles and failures without becoming too blackly unforgiving.
Thomas M. Disch
Washington Post

Quietly amused, wry approach that gives distinction to Mr. Jacobs' work . . . his dry humor would be hard to improve on.
—Elizabeth Easton
The Saturday Review

A great book should aspire (and succeed) in making you laugh, making you cry and just maybe, making you think. . . . Harvey's novels will do all that.
—John Pelan

Step right up, ladies and gentlemen! Here in our wonderful American past you will find wonders rarely glimpsed before. Behold the greatest showman in the history of the ages! Gaze upon the ancient giant turned to stone! Marvel at our hero, as entertaining in his own way as Little Egypt! Look upon the amazing world of Harvey Jacobs! Come one, come all, for an experience never to be forgotten!
—Fred Chappell, Poet Laureate

I wouldn't lead you astray on this, nor would they, so do have a look.
