    Highly recommended, you must check it out.

    A collection of very unusual stories, beyond imagination, spanning several genres. You may consider some of the stories as science fiction, some as horror. It is in a category called weird fiction. I found the stories fascinating.

    Highly Recommended by SCI FI Magazine

    This book was highly recommended by Sci Fi Magazine. I bought and read the book and loved it. This is what was printed in Sci Fi Magazine.

    "Alas, there are few secrets as zealously-guarded, within the field of imaginative fiction, as the depth and breadth of the joys to be found within the short fiction of Lois Gresh. Though a NEW YORK TIMES bestselling author and occasional go-to personality for television appearances based on attributes like her expert knowledge of Batman, and though a frequent mainstay of magazines and theme anthologies (where she's known to nod indulgently at the topic of the moment and then launches wildly into territory undreamt-of by those who composed the guidelines), the fame she deserves has always failed to stick, as if it were a fried egg and the fickle memories of the reading public a hot skillet greased with PAM. This collection may not correct that injustice, but it's certainly an extravagant gift for those of us in the know, and those of us open to fiction that leaves "formula" several highway service plazas behind.

    Not all her protagonists are human. Some are invertebrates, and a couple are microscopic. There's even one written from the point of view of subatomic particles.

    Among the highlights: "Soleman," a weird-sex story that does for foot fetishism what Psycho did for showers; "Lust Of The Giant Sloth," which is about, well, we don't really need to add much to that. And then there's "Debutante Ball"....oh, that story. Journalistic integrity requires me to report that I first encountered it many, many years ago, when Lois first wrote it, for an anthology that failed to reward its devastating genius. It may be the ultimate take on the terrible things we do to ourselves in the name of body image, taking place as it does in a world where that has been taken to particularly horrific extremes. It's a difficult story to take, but in a perfect literary landscape it would now be as well-remembered as Shirley Jackson's "The Lottery." I am entirely serious about this. And when you read it, you'll concur."
