Description

"'Trailer park science fiction'... [An] often genuinely funny mixture of Raymond Carver, Harry Harrison, and Douglas Adams" (Booklist).

Fractal Paisleys contains ten funny, irreverent, and sexy stories, including two previously published works. The Nebula Award finalist "Lennon Spex" explores how John Lennon found inspiration for his songs. Also included in this collection: the real reason for the disappearance of the dinosaurs, how the L'il Bear Bar in Providence, Rhode Island (the author's hometown, by the way -- not a coincidence) ended up with a talking moose head on its wall, and more of Di Filippo's fascinating writing.

You can try to escape from the mundane, or with the help of Paul Di Filippo, you can take a brief, meaningful break from it. In the vein of George Saunders or Michael Chabon, Di Filippo uses the tools of science fiction and the surreal to take a deep, richly felt look at humanity. His brand of funny, quirky, thoughtful, fast?moving, heart?warming, brain?bending stories exists across the entire spectrum of the fantastic from hard science fiction to satire to fantasy and on to horror, delivering a riotously entertaining string of modern fables and stories from tomorrow, now, and anytime. After you read Paul Di Filippo, you will no longer see everyday life quite the same.
