small cover book TYFYSMy collection of short fiction, “Thank You For Your Sperm” (MadHat Press, ISBN 978-0988549043) is now available at Amazon (see also Goodreads):

“To read Thank You for Your Sperm is to embark on an extended journey where nothing at all goes as planned, yet everything, every chance meeting and wrong turn and misadventure somehow, gloriously, morphs into the miraculous. This collection is a wonder, the product of one of the most original and startling minds operating in literary fiction today. Read this book, take the journey, but proceed slowly. Breathe deep. Miss nothing.”
