The Baum Plan for Financial Independence and Other Stories
BY JOHN KESSEL

Just finished reading this short story collection and it wowed me. I can't recommend it enough.

Quote:
An ex-con finds himself falling, once more, under a seductive, amoral woman's spell.
A hidden door in a summer house leads to a land of plenty.
An inventor's life converges with the pulp fiction he reads.
In "Pride and Prometheus," the Bennett sisters encounter Dr. Frankenstein and his monster.
And, in his acclaimed and award-winning Lunar Quartet, Kessel explores the gender dynamics, politics, and long-term sustainability of a matriarchal lunar colony.

This astonishing collection ranges from science fiction to the surreal while intersecting with Frank L. Baum's Oz and the characters of Flannery O'Connor, Mary Shelley, and Jane Austen. By turns satirical, horrific, funny, and generous, these stories showcase the manifold gifts of a modern-day master.

You won't regret it, it's a cracking read. Also, because I love the books so much, you might want to check out Kelly Link's short story collections on Feedbooks, they're amazing http://www.feedbooks.com/author/588

well, i've gone and downloaded it too. and i think it may just have been the book that tipped my "to read" list right over into the category "(hu)man-made constructions that are visible from outer space". curse you, moejoe !

now, going to bed, to read.
