About the BookThis collection brings together a dozen of my stories, — tales of hapless children and adults encountering the surreal and the mundane. William Gibson, Howard Waldrop, and Michael Swanwick have very kindly provided, respectively, a foreword, an "afterwards", and a piece of teasing verse, for your amusement and my own.
Although published originally in science-fiction magazines, the stories, like the recipe for Ideologically Labile Fruit Crisp, can be enjoyed by most castes, creeds, pocketbooks, and political persuasions.
Included in the book are:
* Stable Strategies for Middle Management
* Coming to Terms
* The Sock Story
* Lichen and Rock
* Fellow Americans
* Computer Friendly
