Usually Ships in 1-5 Days
The debut short story collection from Joshua Chaplinsky, author of Kanye West-Reanimator. Thirteen weird pieces of literary genre fiction. Singularities, ciphers, and reappearing limbs. Alien messiahs and murderous medieval hydrocephalics. A dark collection that twists dreams into nightmares in an attempt to find a whisper of truth."This is dark stuff, but fun, without any hipster wink of irony or cynicism. Writing stories that are simultaneously grim and good-hearted is a fucking tough line to straddle, and writing them well... let's just say I don't see that often. Chaplinsky walks a barbed-wire tightrope here. In short, good shit."Craig Clevenger, Author of The Contortionist's Handbook"If you're sick of tepid short stories that taste like watered-down milk, "Whispers in the Ear of a Dreaming Ape," is the collection of multi-colored, bite-sized brain pan bullets that might just be the cure. Joshua Chaplinsky has an imagination both of depth and breadth, and no two stories are alike. You can practically hear the lively, fascinating, hallucinatory click of his brain throughout the book. An enjoyable read for all of us dreaming apes."Autumn Christian, Author of Girl Like a Bomb.
