New stories from Mr. Magical Realism himself . . . Franz Kafka, meet Ray Bradbury . . .
The stories in this collection, all unpublished until now, are a testament of the impact of great writing. From the strange and surreal/magic realist writings of Kafka to the brilliant joy of Bradbury's imagination unleashed, writer Bruce Taylor learned well from these masters of expression. And with time, began to blend these seeming dissonant voices into his own work, at once strange and different, yet beautiful and haunting. His only hope is that with these stories, he has paid due respect and homage to the two writers who have influenced him the most: Franz Kafka and--Ray Bradbury.
As rich and poetic s Bradbury at his finest."
--William F. Nolan, author of Logan's Run
