Saplings that could grow into Twilight Zone episodes. Most are at least a little funny, a few are poignant, a few are truly creepy. Perfect for 9-12 year-olds, surprisingly fun for anyone else who just can't get enough of short-short SF&F stories. I will look for more by the author. Oh, the 'Weenies series' books definitely stand alone. ( )

I've only read the first few stories and realized that they are great for reluctant young readers who like warped and creepy stuff, but not for me. I liked his comments about how he came up with the ideas for the stories.

These are great read aloud stories that take 5-10 minutes each. There are more than 30 stories that are all science fiction. While attending CCIRA in 2011 I heard David Lubar tell one of the stories from this book and it was a wonderful tale. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0765360756, Mass Market Paperback)

A girl doesn’t have a date for the school dance—until her dad makes one for her in his lab. “Lily—meet Stitchy.” A family enjoys a nice Thanksgiving dinner—until they are interrupted by a torrent of turkeys out for revenge. A princess meets a pea-brained suitor. And the battle of two red hot pepper weenies ends in flames.

Critically-acclaimed author and master of the macabre David Lubar returns from a journey into the darkest depths of his brain with thirty-five more warped and creepy tales. And in the tradition of the three previous Weenie collections—In the Land of the Lawn Weenies, Invasion of the Road Weenies, and The Curse of the Campfire Weenies—he reveals the inspiration behind each story at the end of the book. Don't be a weenie. Read these stories...if you dare!
