Description

"Di Filippo is like gourmet potato chips to me. I can never eat just one of his stories." -Harlan Ellison style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" / style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" /You can try to escape from the mundane, or with the help of Paul Di Filippo, you can take a short, meaningful break from it. In the vein of George Saunders or Michael Chabon, Di Filippo uses the tools of science fiction and the surreal to take a deep, richly felt look at humanity. His brand of funny, quirky, thoughtful, fast-moving, heart-warming, brain-bending stories exist across the entire spectrum of the fantastic from hard science fiction to satire to fantasy and on to horror, delivering a riotously entertaining string of modern fables and stories from tomorrow, now and anytime. After you read Paul Di Filippo, you'll no longer see everyday life quite the same. style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" / style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" /The 17 stories in this collection allow us to encounter Salvador Dali stumbling through his own personalized afterlife; experience the hilariously odd life of Hiram P. Dottle from birth through death and on into several reincarnations; gaze in wonder as a boy is born without a brain and his skull is invaded by wild animals; and, in the title story, a professor of children's literature discovers a bizarre set of similarities between a lost text and his illicit relationship with one of his students. style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" / style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" /Originally published: 2002
