The wanted to terraform... the Earth?

Once more, Nick Pollotta has unleashed a bakers dozen of his comedy short stories, this collection ranging from science fiction to mystery, and each tale crowned with his hallmark twist endings.

Battling the ultimate evil, the only hope for a desperate British lawman is a new, and innovative, use of condiments.

Ever wonder what would happen if Sherlock Holmes discovered that his best friend was a murderer? So did Watson, but not anymore.

When nuclear war turns Earth into a savage paradise, a boy and his pet robot learn the ultimate rule for survival: keep your damn mouth shut.

There is an excellent reason that rap stars always wear a crucifix and carry so many guns. The answer is simple...fangbangers.

So turn down the lights, lock the doors, butter the cat, and prepare for the unexpected!

    "Very Good Set of Stories"

    The intro is very unorthodox but the short stories are fairly well written. I wish there were fewer stories about vampires, but even these are original. The one where the cop doesn't know he's fighting a vampire is very entertaining (he thinks the guy is some kind of foppish nut). The author probably made a "Mistake" with the title. Aside from some puerile remarks in the intro, the book does not wallow at this level.

    "A lot of really fun stories from a wonderful write"

    Nick Pollotta is a gem , and his work in it's myriad of forms (he has more pseudonyms than I can easily recall) is always fun . This collection of his early stories is a lot of fun and is a great way to kill an evening.
