Synopsis

In these eleven short stories by speculative fiction master George Alec Effinger, New York's populace must deal with the realisies of a bi-polar existance; patients brains are cut to tiny pieces in a clinical search for the medical definition of bliss; a child's natural fear of the dark is exploded into new mind-bending phobias and a cartoon favorite pays a personal visit to an aging, aching fan. Humor, sheer audacity and an eclectic array of human fears and expectations placed against each other all make this collection a perfect representation of Effinger's unique voice. He is truly a remarkable talent and one not to be missed.
