Overview

A murderous Queen of Hearts, the problems of time-traveling mail, a horny merman who meets his fanged match, and Galactic Rangers dealing with kidnapped royals and libidinous cat queens. What do these all have in common? Why, they're all in Melanie Fletcher's RANDOM REALITIES, a compilation of ten speculative fiction tales that cheerfully romp across space and time (not to mention a wide variety of genres).

Featuring an introduction by the award-winning writer Jana Oliver, RANDOM REALITIES includes a disturbing take on the future of acting ("Star Quality"), a bubba-heavy paranormal black comedy that was included in the 2007 Nebula Award nominee long list ("The Padre, the Rabbi, and the Devil His Own Self"), and a flamboyant riff on 50's space opera that predates Captain Jack Harkness by two years ("Lusts of the Cat Queen: a Dash Manning Adventure").

In addition to previously published material, RANDOM REALITIES also includes two never-before published stories; a dark look at a loveless queen ("All on a Summer's Day"), and two dear friends spending their final days together ("The Quiet Sound of Bees).
