A collection of slipstream fiction. Cover art by Ben Baldwin.

Two heads are better than one!

This collection brings together two of the brightest stars in the science fiction slipstream short story firmament. The combined talents of Allen Ashley and Andrew Hook have produced eleven delicious yet subtly seamless stories full of wit, imagination, invention and emotion.

What is the secret behind the gated community of “Xanadu Springs”? Will the online pharmaceutical “Vitamin X” really guarantee you fifteen minutes of fame? What is the best strategy to ensure victory at “Air Hockey 3000”? And can Lynsey the lowly “Abattoir Girl” successfully lead the resistance against the alien invasion?

Allen Ashley is the author of the novel “The Planet Suite” and the collections “Somnambulists”, “Urban Fantastic”, and “The Days of the Dodo”; Andrew Hook’s recent publications include the novellas “And God Created Zombies” and “Ponthe Oldenguine” and the short story collection, “Nitrospective”. Forget Pohl and Kornbluth; move over Maynard and Sims; Ashley and Hook are the new noises on the block.
