Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 097684690X, Paperback)Edmund R. Schubert's recipe for short stories is simple: Take regular people, put them in the middle of insanity, shake vigorously, and see what happens. What usually 'happens' is stories like the ones in this collection. His characters live in a world that's just a little bit off-kilter; or else reality is doing just fine, thank you, but their perspective on it doesn't quite line up with everyone else's. It's all so close to normal, yet nothing like it. Schubert is probably best known as the editor of Intergalactic Medicine Show, the online magazine founded by Orson Scott Card. But before he was an editor, he was a writer. And before he was a writer, he was a guy who played a lot of volleyball. Too much volleyball, really. And before that... well, who can remember that far back. Most of all, Schubert wants you to know that he had fun writing these stories, and he hopes you'll have fun reading them. Seriously. Have fun-or else. "Edmund Schubert gave me the best answers I've ever heard in five years of interviewing authors-answers so great, that I suspect he'll be receiving penguin-themed gifts until the end of time... (see the infamous "penguin interview" on pp.158) Even better-I have this lovely short story collection of his to keep me company and remind me what a complete carnival freak he really is. It's true: Edmund and I will never be Cool. We'll just have to be Awesome instead. And we're okay with that." New York Times bestselling author, Alethea Kontis, from her introduction
