Explore the Curious and Confounding
* A gritty sci-fi / western featuring a genetically modified talking horse
* A karmic sci-fi apocalypse haunted by the "ghosts" of the dead
* A man who erases memories, desperate to remember something important
* An old-fashioned story of survival in space, with a twist

These stories by Robert J. McCarter are different, strange. They are the anomalies, the divergences from his usual storytelling. Darker. Stranger. Weirder.

Genres span the spectrum from a contemporary tale of a cowboy detective in Arizona hiding from his past, to a human judge in an AI controlled far-future sci-fi world, to a fantasy story about a man seeing silent ghosts in the forest who are trying to tell him something.

Featuring "Designation Null," a finalist in the Writers of the Future Contest, and twelve other stories, embark on a unique adventure with Anomalous Readings.
