This review is from: The Unusual Genitals Party and other Stories (Brain in a Jar Books Book 4) (Kindle Edition)
The one amazon.com review for this book says that it is boring. Well I really don't know which book they read, but I'm almost certain it wasn't the same one I've just finished reading!

In fairness, the stories may not be to everybody's taste, but they cater to a lot of my likes: quirkiness, SF element, slight horror element, originality, and the "I wish I'd written that" factor.

I think the author is from Glasgow, and at a guess I would say they have something to do with the field of neuroscience, since it was somewhat of a recurring theme (although don't be put off - it's more the concepts than any difficult science that gets thrown in, and they are great concepts).

I'm finding it hard to review any specific story without giving away too much, and I don't want to do that, so I'll simply say this book is well worth reading if you like this sort of fiction (see my tick-list above), and at 77p you're certainly not going to regret buying it. I note the book description mentions another book by the same author - I will almost certainly be getting my hands on that one.
