Tales of Fear and Wonder
An eclectic collection of spine-tingling, gut-churning, irreverent, dark, fantastical, and sometimes downright hilarious short stories by the Edgar-nominated author of DUST and THE HUNCHBACK ASSIGNMENTS. Slade's writing style has shades of Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, William Gibson, and Ry Cooder. And he has an eye for odd details and macabre situations that is all his own.
Stubb - a boy named Stubb will prove he's a werewolf one way or another. Virtual Dragon - in the future Kung Fu movies will rule the box office and wars will be fought over the proceeds. Jesus Busts A Bronc - a special appearance by Jesus at a small town rodeo. A miracle? And what is Judas doing there? Bubbles: The Diary of Terrance Winslow - some neighbors are much, much worse than others. Snow White and the Seven Elves - how to win the kingdom and look good while doing it. Garbage Day - One never knows what's really in the garbage.
Sixteen startling stories in all.
