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 the President’s secret PR bunker; 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.
