About the book…
The mind of a befuddled muse is full of odd nooks and crannies where unusual ideas can flower in surprising places.
This first collection of short fiction by William Cohen-Kiraly contains twelve short stories and a novella across multiple genres such as Science Fiction, Time Travel Romance, Alternative History, Paranormal and Hauntings, Clown Noir, Historical fFiction, Interspecies Communication and Humor. The stories in this short story collection include:
Times of Life and Death: A field historian specializing in Tudor history goes back in time to witness history first time but becomes obsessed with the enchanting but doomed Lady Jane Grey
Curved Space: The captain of a dying interstellar ship jokingly calls back to Earth requesting a pizza and is shocked when the delivery shows up at his airlock.
Heart’s Desire: The newly elected president of the United States wins(?) a bet with the devil and she learns he can cause more pain when he grants wishes.
The Big Gumshoes: A clown PI must investigate the murder of his friend and mentor. Along the way, he finds love, battles a corrupt side show and must solve the mystery of the dog left at his trailer door.
Something That Will Not Let Go: A woman at the end of her rope returns to her childhood home and discovers the imaginary friend that helped her survive an abusive childhood is still there and willing to help her exact revenge.
This book also features wonderful artwork by my daughter Jamie Cohen-Kiraly who is greatly responsible for rekindling my love of writing.
