Iridescence and other stories by Dean Whitlock, Maurizio Manzieri

An alien who can paint on the surface of a soap bubble. A corporate raider who faxes himself to his takeovers. A woman who can See the future, and a man with fear so great it turns back time. These are a few of the beings who inhabit Dean Whitlock’s stories. From back roads to teeming cities to a hidden torture chamber; from the serious to the absurd – each of the ten stories in this collection is unique, a tale born of a real-world experience, reshaped by Whitlock’s questing imagination and his antic cast of characters. Nine of the stories have appeared before, in Asimov’s Science Fiction, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Aboriginal SF. The tenth tale is seeing its first wide distribution, an absurdist satire guaranteed to entertain many, irritate some, and enrage a few. One thing you can be sure of, every one of Whitlock’s stories will stir your emotions. Like them or hate them, you won’t be bored.

About the Author

Vermont author Dean Whitlock writes fantasy and science fiction for young and not-so-young adults. His stories have appeared in Asimov’s, Fantasy & Science Fiction, and Aboriginal SF, as well as in anthologies in the US and abroad. His two YA fantasy novels were published by Clarion Books, but now he publishes independently under the Boatman Press imprint. He will begin releasing his novels for e-readers in early 2015, and a second story collection will follow later in the year. An Air Force brat, Dean has lived in a dozen states and three foreign countries, a life of travel that gave him plenty of time to read in the car and now enriches his writing.

Loved them all! The story, Iridescence, is fascinating. In Roadkill, loved Pete's wild ride with Bun at the wheel. Got right into Winter Solstice, felt the cold ice covered lake, saw the bright stars. Loved The Man who Loved Kites. You want to see what happens next! The descriptions are impressive with wonderful characters. Great ending in Starkers! I am normally not a F and SF reader so this was surely and adventure!
