This collection is what happens when you give a wildly inventive mind room to run and build, destroy and rebuild. It's great.

My favorites, in no particular order, were: "A Weeping Czar Behold the Fallen Moon," "Four Clowns of the Apocalypse and the Mecca of Mirth," "The Boy Who Could Bend and Fall," "There Once Was a Girl From Nantucket," "Love in the Time of Car Alarms," and "What Child is This I Ask the Midnight Clear."
wonderful collection of diverse stories

Ken Scholes grew up in a trailer outside a smallish logging town not far from the base of Mount Rainier in the Pacific Northwest.

Baptized into Story at a young age, he fed himself on Speed Racer, Time Tunnel, Land of the Giants and Marine Boy sprinkled with a generous dose of dinosaur picture books. One day, his parents brought home two science fiction books -- Trapped in Space by Jack Williamson...more
