Reviews - What do customers think about The Indestructible Man?

short stories about dreamers and their effects on those around them  Aug 30, 2005
Jablonsky does not marginalize his characters with abnormalities, but rather illustrates how their ideas, behavior, and aims affect those around them, sometimes to the point that others become involved in their impossible schemes. The abnormalities of the main characters reflect the everyday hopes, dreams, aspirations, burdens, and frustrations of the wider world of normal individuals around them. Henry's friends accept his becoming "unhinged" from the death of his wife Cora, and "have learned to accommodate him." This "accommodation" broadens to involve helping Henry pilfer steel spikes, empty oil drums, wooden planks, and other materials he needs for a large catapult which he believes will catapult him to the moon. Watching Henry's crazed ambition come to a tragic end, the small crowd that had helped him try to fulfill it "for the first time...feel[s] the pull of gravity upon us." Stories of Jablonsky's have appeared in the Southern Humanities Review, Beloit Fiction Journal, and other respected literary journals. Somewhat simplistic in conception and structure (probably due to the limitations of space for a short story), the stories memorably portray the sometimes subtle, even insidious, sometimes overt, even flamboyant, effects wishful thinking can have on others.
I've got the Jablonsky Fever!  Aug 9, 2005
Quite simply, this is the best collection of themed shorts by a single author that I have read in years. The prose is spare, yet the imagery is haunting and unique. I devoured the book in a weekend and now am looking for other work by this author.If you have even a passing interest in science fiction or magical realism this is a must-read, and if you have no interest in any of those things but want to know why people love those genres, this is a must-read for you as well. The characters and plots are compelling and take you to extraordinary places. Like a master jazz musician making a tired standard sound fresh and new, Jablonsky's stories of time travel and supermen aren't the same ones you've heard before.

They blend fantasy and reality in unusual settings   May 12, 2005
William Jablonsky's literary short stories comprising The Indestructible Man are nothing short of unique: they blend fantasy and reality in unusual settings and protagonists who seek such adventures as going to the moon or conquering heights. From a man who has the Devil in him and needs help to aliens received on the radio, a touch of the extraordinary spices every tale.
