In the tradition of Poe, Ambrose Bierce and Ray Bradbury...
Tom Henighan skillfully explores the twilight realm where the tilt of reality toward chaos suggests a new kind of order. Strange Attractors is made up of nine stories, often rooted in reality but with a dark, eerie element of the fantastic.
Enter a world where: a Canadian missionary re-enacts Eden among the ghostly Tasaday; a son plots to kill his robotic mother; a child has a Christmas Eve visit from a talking rat and three rather unsatisfactory wise men; the Earth is gripped by a new ice age; and enter a future where women have forgotten men.
