This first collection of Tristan MacAvery's short works spans over two decades of humor,
experience, passion, and wonder. Here are tales of a lady who still speaks to
unicorns; of a writer who finds a muse that's a bit more than he bargained for;
of a pair of space pilots, drinking one last toast to each other before their
respective planets go to war; of a town whose people live only to build and
rebuild the wall which surrounds their ever-shrinking land; of an office temp
who discovers that his boss just might be the very devil to work for; and of
aliens who try to mate with Volkswagens.
There is food for thought here
also, ranging from the comedy of breaking a toilet while being attacked by a
religious icon, to the drama of trying to rescue a drug-crazed young man from
his suicidal cravings. Essays discuss everything from the relative worth of
Henry David Thoreau's Walden to the modern world, to an entire political
platform that has something to offend just about anyone who has lost hold of
his common sense.
