Wonderful and wry pastiches Scott Edelman's newest collection brings together his fiction inspired by master storytellers - Edgar Allan Poe, John Steinbeck, Alice Sheldon among others. Herein can be found the Shakespearean riff of a living son of the mayor of New York City falls in love with the daughter of the zombie king, a Bradburyesque aged carnival attraction who promised patrons immortality, and a Wellsian figure deals with the impossibility of miracles. The collection features notes by Edelman that offer insight into each story's birth and the importance of the storyteller he sought to emulate and honor.
