An eclectic collection of spine-tingling, gut-churning, irreverent, dark, fantastical, and sometimes downright hilarious short stories by the Edgar-nominated author of Dust and Amber Fang. Produced and narrated by Edgar Lloyd with a special appearance by Amber Dawn. Slade's writing style has shades of Ray Bradbury, Stephen King, William Gibson, and Ry Cooder. And he has an eye for odd details and macabre situations that are all his own.
"Virtual Dragon" - in the future, Kung Fu movies will rule the box office and wars will be fought over the proceeds.
"Jesus Busts a Bronc" - a special appearance by Jesus at a small town rodeo. A miracle? And what is Judas doing there?
"Snow White and the Seven Elves" - how to win the kingdom and look good while doing it.
"Garbage Day" - One never knows what's really in the garbage.

This book was an interesting group of short stories. With its' unusual endings that keep you guessing.
This was a great listen, it has a bit of everything; from creepy, unsettling and downright strange to almost heartwarming in a twisted sort of way. I loved every second of it! Arthur Slade keeps me at full attention with this story and I love the familiar Narrators! It's a bit like Alfred Hitchcock but with a nice twist of of Slade Flair and what I've come most to look forward to in his stories...His sometimes subtle and other times not so subtle wit and well placed humor. This collection of stories will leave you feeling.....well, I guess you'll have to find out on your own. :-)
I wasn't impressed with any of it, so much so that I turned it off around the 5th chapter. Sorry author...
