Publisher's Summary

The thirteen stories in Chris Tarry’s richly imagined debut, How To Carry Bigfoot Home, lay bare the insurmountable forces that determine who we are and who we become. From an out-of-work dragon-slaying father in “Here Be Dragons” to a family arguing aboard a rocket ship in “Topics in Advanced Rocketry,” the stories use fantastic settings, blazing wit, and imaginative circumstances to explore very human truths. The stories work to reconcile the public self with the private heart. To contemplate the monsters we carry home and lay bare for the ones we love the most.

A fun and dark collection

I will admit, when I saw the cover I was a bit wary thinking this might be a collection of children's stories. Whoa was I wrong. A fun collection of adult horror, I ran through this book in one sitting and am going through it again. From dark to darkly funny, each story complements the others with thoughts of parentage, loss, love, and general adult misgivings. This audio will have you through that shift or exercise in no time.

How to Carry a Story Collection Home to the Reader

This collection is the first time I've read anything by Chis Tarry and I am delighted to have made the connection.
The thirteen stoires are some of the best I've read and Eric Fritzius does a perfect job with the audio version. He is a master of how to use his voice and varies it as the story dictates.

What I like best about the collection is the variety of stories and the emotional force behind the writing. There are lines to laugh about and others to make you cry. Tarry does teens and women especially well and the stories are little slices of life.

I certanily plan to keep track of things written by Tarry as well as the work of Fritizus.
