Overview

Enter into a kaleidoscope of atmospheres, landscapes, characters, and alien worlds, and along the way meet: * A murderer forced to confess by pressure from his own confederates; * A monstrous creature that slaughters ruthlessly by day, and that by night?dreams; * A psychic vampire with a curiously restrained taste for fine chocolate; * An alien with the inexplicable ability to create beauty?and death; * A world whose polluted environment means extinction for one species?and life renewed for another; * A gravedigger whose avocation is providing plots for fledgling storytellers. All of these--and more--lie compressed within the pages of Wer Means Man, and Other Tales of Wonder and Terror. This volume collects short stories by Michael R. Collings, author of The House Beyond the Hill, Wordsmith, Three Tales of Omne, and Singer of Lies and a widely known scholar of science fiction, fantasy, and horror. Ranging from fully developed narratives to short-shorts hinging on ambiguities in a single word, these stories offer something for every taste?as long as that taste runs toward the uncanny, the eldritch, and the macabre.
