    1. Unfortunely I lost this book years ago. And by lost it I mean I loaned it to an unreliable ex who absconded with it when he headed home to Seattle. But I digress. This book is a wonderful collection of weird, wonderful, silly and slightly horrific short fiction. Not all the stories are excellent, a few are awful, but overall this is a collection that showcases a certain type of literature that rarely gets the attention it deserves.
