Not Quite The End Of The World Just Yet: Short Stories & Strange Futures: Short



The twelve stories in this collection touch upon science fiction, horror, and fantasy, but all see people brush against the sublime and discover who they truly are. In “One Saturday Night, With Angel,” a young man staffing a convenience store frets as angels hunt his customers. In “Say Zucchini, and Mean It,” the world is overrun by a plague that robs us of three very important words. In “Clockwork, Patchwork, and Raven,” a clockwork man dreams of a fairy-tale ending while trying to protect those he loves from a dangerous gang of genetically engineered crow boys. In “Dying Young,” the psychic son of a lawman must re-evaluate the deals he makes in order to keep his town safe from cybernetic marauders and a dragon seeking justice.

Mimes, aliens, and kaiju that only fifty percent of the population can see. Invaders from beyond the stars, empaths on the run, and Astronomer’s Royal of England. These are just some of the characters you’ll meet in the strange futures presented in this collection, but all are grounded in very human strengths and frailties.
