The characters in this collection of stories by Bryan Walpert have each had their lives disrupted by personal tragedy. Left to face up to both their responsibility and lack of control over the events, characters weave their own stories and enter into their own worlds as they psychologically resist grief but are driven to explain.
Bryan Walpert’s intriguing, well-crafted stories span the realms of philosophy, astronomy, mycology, super heroes, science fiction and religion. Hopping between America and New Zealand, he explores the human need to rationalize experiences and the way these explanations change over time.
"Fantasic insight ... and I can honestly say I've never read anything like it!"
"An unusual collection of short stories about feelings and perceptions. Most had a little twist or surprise towards the end. Some are rather odd but strangely haunting and sad."
