This amusing audiobook features 13 diverse short stories that author Harry Fancy claims he conjured up "after too much late-night cheese whilst reading works by the likes of Edgar Alan Poe, Ambrose Bierce, Franz Kafka, Terry Pratchett and Luigi Pirandello (the overlooked father of The Theatre of the Absurd)". Fancy, who lives in the Manchester area of England, has a way with weirdness!
Within these diverse stories, you will encounter a magician whose finale is murder, shared nightmares, a magic carpet that lives up to its name, a recipe for a Martian non-vegetarian main course, a cook who purloins the body of a stranger, and other interesting topics and characters. A few can be classified as horror stories, one as science fiction, and the majority just plain quirky. There's a story here to amuse almost anyone.
