Book Description

As Lisa Mason mulled over her published short fiction, she found seven wildly different stories with one thing in common--a heroine totally unlike her. Mason is the girl next door. She has no idea where these Strange Ladies came from
In The Oniomancer (Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine), a Chinese-American punk bicycle messenger finds an artifact on the street. In Guardian (Asimov’s Science Fiction Magazine), an African-American gallerist resorts to voodoo to confront a criminal. In Felicitas (Desire Burn: Women Writing from the Dark Side of Passion [Carroll and Graf]), an illegal Mexican immigrant faces life as a cat shapeshifter. In Stripper (Unique Magazine), an exotic dancer battles the Mob. In Triad (Universe 2 [Bantam]), Dana Anad lives half the time as a woman, half as a man, and falls in love with a very strange lady. In Destination (Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction), a driver takes three strangers from a ride board on a cross-country trip as the radio reports that a serial killer is on the loose. In Transformation and the Postmodern Identity Crisis (Fantastic Alice [Ace]), Alice considers life after Wonderland.

From the author of The Garden of Abracadabra, Volume 1 of the Abracadabra Series, Summer of Love, A Time Travel (a Philip K. Dick Award Finalist and San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book), The Gilded Age, A Time Travel (a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book), and Celestial Girl (A Lily Modjeska Mystery), Books 1—4.

More About the Author

I'm totally delighted to announce the launch of THE GARDEN OF ABRACADABRA, the advance Kindle ebook of the 2013 print edition of Book 1 of the Abracadabra Series. If you enjoy Charlaine Harris, Kim Harrison, Laurell K. Hamilton, Neil Gaiman, and, yes, Harry Potter, please give this a try!

I'm also happy to announce several new publications on Kindle: SUMMER OF LOVE, A TIME TRAVEL and the sequel, THE GILDED AGE, A TIME TRAVEL, both from previously published works; TESLA, A WORTHY OF HIS TIME, A SCREENPLAY, which is presently being read by L.A. producers; U F uh-O, A SCI FI COMEDY, a novella adapted from my science fiction comedy screenplay which is now FREE from January 9, 2012 to April 9, 2012 as a Kindle Select Title in the Lending Library; and EON'S KISS, a paranormal romance written under the pen name, Suzanna Moore. THE QUESTER TRILOGY, based on my cyberpunk classics, ARACHNE and CYBERWEB, as well as two collections of stories are forthcoming.

A graduate of the University of Michigan School of Literature, Sciences, and the Arts and the University of Michigan Law School, I'm the author of two dozen stories, two screenplays, and nine novels, including SUMMER OF LOVE, a San Francisco Chronicle Recommended Book and Philip K. Dick Award finalist, and THE GOLDEN NINETIES, a New York Times Notable Book and New York Public Library Recommended Book.

I published my first story, "ARACHNE," in Omni and have since published short fiction in magazines and anthologies worldwide. My Omni story, "TOMORROW'S CHILD," is in active development at Universal Studios.

I live in the San Francisco Bay area with my husband, the acclaimed artist and jeweler, Tom Robinson, and am a huge fan of cats and hummingbirds.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great science fiction short stories! 1 Nov. 2013
By D. Pflaster - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Fantastic book of short stories. All have some science fiction/fantasy elements. One is about a road trip with strangers, a bit more on the horror end of the spectrum, another is more humorous, based on Alice in Wonderland. One is a fascinating imagining of alien gender, and how it might differ from human. All have been published in various magazines and anthologies before, but were hard to find until this great collection. Recommended.
