Gary Anderson's Best of All Possible Worlds launches May 29, 2012 by WordsworthGreenwich Press.

Goodreads voted Anderson’s debut novel, Animal Magnet, among the “Best Books of the Decade” and “Best Literary Books of All Time.” 

“Reminiscent of John Barth’s Sotweed Factor – and equally accomplished, Gary Anderson’s Best of All Possible Worlds is a sustained comic delight. Masterful, outrageous, teeming with exotic incidents and characters.… An astonishingly fine novel. Don’t miss it.” -- Terry Richard Bazes, Novelist, Author of Lizard World

 "In Best of All Possible Worlds Gary Anderson recreates Voltaire’s narrative style, but with a conceptualist’s eye. He takes a small fragment from Candide and builds a rich story upon it that is full of comedic turns of phrase... I continue to be impressed with Anderson’s literary genius and highly recommend Best of All Possible Worlds to anyone looking for a critical and fresh look at the world."  -- Jacqueline Valencia, Author of Tristise
