I'm taking this trade paperback out of Laevina's Fantasy/SF/Horror book box. Looks like a quirky collection of stories by an author I'm not familiar with - intriguing! [It seems to be the only copy registered so far, too; an extra inducement. And it's inscribed by the author, "To Lauren," circa 2006 - nice to see!]

Later: The stories range from surreal ("The Attendant") to very human ("Child, Looking at the Moon, Wondering"), touching on questions of perception and reality, fear and abuse, sense of identity. Sometimes they were a bit too surreal for my taste, leaving me wondering just what was going on {wry grin}. Among my favorites: "The Baker," about a successful, reasonably happy baker, who acquires a robot to help with his business, but neglects its maintenance. This has the expected disastrous result - but something very unexpected follows on. "The Journey of Mr. M" is a short story that reminded me of nightmares I sometimes have. "The Little Black Box of Brundool" reminded me in some ways of Ray Bradbury - a good thing. And the wry little vignette "Der Fuhrer as a Bad Kitchen Appliance".

I left this book propped up on a gas pump at the Hess Express station at about 5; hope the finder enjoys it!
