A collection of thirteen stunning stories by one of
the most celebrated American writers of the twentieth
A follow-up to his 1970 science fiction collection, The
General Zapped an Angel, Fast's book of thirteen new science
fiction stories is brisk and engrossing. In "The Hoop," a scientist
builds a portal to an unknown destination, which the mayor of New
York City hijacks to use as a garbage dump until the location's
surprising, and hilarious, revelation. And in "The Egg," set three
thousand years in the future, a research team discovers an egg,
something they have never seen before, cryogenically frozen in a
nuclear bunker. These thirteen stories are bizarre, hilarious,
poignant, and sure to entertain.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Howard Fast
