For Reals! is a collection of short stories recounting the real life and sometimes imagined exploits of the revoltingly handsome Gil Polanco. Included are three essays dealing with misperceptions. The book ends with a classic science fiction tale exploring the dangers of potentially explosive foods in the far reaches of the galaxy. Inside you will find a diverse cast of characters, from a teacher obsessed with children's bathroom hygiene to FfFttT, the Lageshian Intestoid Being who seems doomed to meet its father's fate. Prepare to meet the Stupid Racists, the evil barber, Thomas Aquinas, King Kong, and Stumpy, the vertically challenged caveman who was responsible for the survival of Primitive Man. This is the stuff that stuff is made of!
