In this collection of short stories, Gregory's muse takes us to places as diverse as ancient Egypt to your own back yard. 26 tales, each one unique in it's telling and yet there are a few stories which share similar geography.

This is a must have read. Gregory is one the most talented writers around and this collection of stories, all wonderfully original and with a twist that is typical of Gregory Norris' skill as a writer of fantastic tales and a unique mind. If you are making a list of must have books, make sure that this is top of that list.
