Kersh, Gerald: Men Without Bones. v1. 18 Dec. 08

Gerald Kersh writes refreshingly weird and strange short stories (and novels) that are hard to categorize. I've always enjoyed his short fiction. Here's hoping that you will, too.
"Venture into this alarmingly convincing world, meet the horse whose stubbornness changed history, or the man damned to everlasting love, or the murderer who confessed... and confessed... and confessed. Learn, too the secret of the Mona Lisa's smile, or what really happened to Ambrose Bierce. And ponder, if you can, the case of Simple Simon, who lost the only important thing he had--and never even missed it. Lean back, relax, take a long look at the world of Kersh. You may never recover."
Like all the books I assemble on MobileRead, this too was assembled to reflect human intervention and artistic judgment.
I hope you enjoy it.

I don't get it. This is a book about Congress? What's refreshing about that?
Okay, I'll go away now.
