Chester Crowley's Peculiar Head (Paperback)
Peculiar Head is a collection of seventeen short science fiction stories. Perfect for those with entertainment needs, but not much time.
With a theme of peculiarity, which is exampled in the titles, this short story collection will appeal to those who have felt odd or out-of-place. It will entertain those with limited time, or limited attention span, though it may not be welcome to any who prefer novels. It is perfect for airport consumption. It includes seventeen short stories, the majority of which are science fiction. The broad range of story lengths, visceral tones, and interests should give most readers a good time. Some brief story descriptions: Xenosthesia—A meeting of the extra-sensory minds. Sensory Confusion—Inner Space (Rock The Cortex Mix). Saber Tooth Tiger’s Silver Tooth Fillin’—The government pilot and his imaginary pet. DayCevin—The new way to ingest. Somnus Laughing—The insomniac and the narcoleptic.
For extra interest, try to find the music theme in each story. For instance, in Regulation Generation, the character names might bare resemblance to members of The Police (though the characters in this book are purely fictional).
