“A fabulous debut story collection…These tales are alternately humorous, touching, frightening, thought-provoking, and all of them are sublimely entertaining. Shifting narrative gears with a sly grace, Rebecca Adams Wright proves that she can tackle any genre (not to mention any sub-genre) that she wants to. And she makes it look easy. Is she showing off? Maybe, but she’s got talent worth flaunting. Read her. You’ll be glad you did.” —David Anthony Durham, author of the Acacia Trilogy
“Rebecca Wright’s fiction fizzes with charm and intelligence.” —Kij Johnson, author of At the Mouth of the River of Bees
“These are ceaselessly inventive stories, witty, wry and wondrous, by turn, and all graced with an emotional sincerity that ensures they never dip into mere whimsy. This is speculative fiction with both a head and a heart.” —Peter Ho Davies, author of The Welsh Girl
“These wild, fun, challenging stories showcase a promising writer stretching her talents in every imaginable direction.” —Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
“At turns heartbreaking and hilarious, this far-out book of stories spans past, present, and future, as characters deal with sharks, aliens and robots.” —Entertainment Weekly
“In her debut short story book, Rebecca Adams Wright really lets her imagination run wild. Sharks that rule the world, a dying robot dog, the aftermath of an alien invasion—these are just a micro-sampling of what to expect in this epic fifteen-story collection.” —Refinery29
