Howdy folks. My Literary Dad and Keeper of the Collections, Patrick Swenson at Fairwood Press, is putting my most recent collection on sale for Nook and Kindle!
This is what Publisher’s Weekly had to say about it….
Scholes’s third Imagination Forest collection (after Diving Mimes, Weeping Czars, and Other Unusual Suspects) continues exploring the limits of speculative fiction in 17 short stories whose genres include playful fantasy and SF as well as edge-of-your-seat suspense. Scholes revels in the offbeat and surreal, marrying otherworldliness with very real human fears and concerns, and his stories are all the richer for it. Curious characters abound, including “The Starship Mechanic,” about an alien mechanic fascinated with the holdings of a San Francisco bookstore, and a cat-woman trying to escape her former owner in “A Chance of Cats and Dogs.” The collection has a distinctive rhythm, with the novella-length standout piece “A Symmetry of Serpents and Doves” bookended by shorter vignettes. Scholes’s work is considerably inventive, and this collection showcases his versatility as a writer. (Aug.)
So tell a friend! Grab a copy for yourself! And if you love it, say so on Goodreads, Amazon, B&N or wherever you heap praise upon books you enjoy!
