Author has written 12 stories for Sci-Fi, Humor, Fantasy, and Humor.
Except where emphasized, all pieces here are set in the same universe, often in New York City. Keep these (often trivial) tidbits in mind as you read them:Many electronics, robots and public transit vehicles have snarky AI, and are therefore sentient. Mermaids, centaurs and driders/arachnes/spider-people exist, but they cannot assume a full-human form. Ironically, humans can take on a mermaid/centaur/drider-arachne-spider person form with the right chemistry, and can change back at will. Human cloning has been perfected. Almost. There is life in outer space (see Alien Radio). There are mole people living in the center of the Earth. The subway system has several fictional routes and route extensions in addition the current real-life configuration. Audio cassettes, laserdiscs, CD Videos and 8-tracks are still a thing. Ghosts are commonplace: anyone can see them, and they only resign to the afterlife when they want to. They act like any other human by default (their transparency is a dead giveaway), and can fly and possess if they want to. They can also change their appearance age at will to match how they're feeling. "SiliClones" are rubber human-shaped bodies--with working digestive, respiratory, nervous and excretory organs--available for ghosts to take control of, so as not to look awkward to outsiders. They may purchase multiple SiliClone versions of themselves (i.e. Baby, Child, Teen and Young Adult forms). There are male and female leprechauns. Genies are commonplace too: many of them work for agencies where you can rent one, and then return him/her after you use your three wishes. Tooth fairies, angels, and devils are all species rather than singular characters. The only trolls here are internet trolls! Vintage cars (Checker cabs, VW Bugs, Rolls Royce Phantoms, DeLoreans...) are easier to find. Many are converted into hybrids with all modern conveniences (i.e. GPS, CD/Cassette/8-track/MP3 playback etc) and some. Recurring brand names include: "Tom: Records" record stores, "BAMMO!" cleaning supplies, "Gems Gems Gems" jewelry stores, "Ray's Pizza" restaurants Classic stores like FAO Schwarz, Virgin Megastore, TOWER records and RadioShack are still around. Todd Zeppelin is (eventually) the greatest radio personality in the universe, outranking Howard Stern. Filmed before a live studio audience.
