Ray Vukcevich’s new collection includes 33 previously uncollected stories, all with his trademark whimsical skewed look at the world around us. . . a world of hidden stairs, funny smells, vampire girlfriends, fire women, missile boys, secret libraries, and outlandish (and yet frighteningly real) airline procedures.
‘There is no such thing as a typical Ray Vukcevich story. They all start a strong left turn from reality and then do the Charleston through a space warp.” Adam Troy-Castro
“The Problem of Furniture” in Phantom Drift — A Journal of New Fabulism

Great magazine. My stories are in issues 6 and 9.
“It is a story of realization and healing. The exploration of a common human moment – sometimes as small as a thought and other times as large as a decade – when a character fights his regrets and wrestles with self-compassion. . .” Stefanie Freele, Fiction editor, on “What the Socks Meant” in issue 9

Dinah Hulet. Temari style at 1-15/32″ (37 mm) in diameter. The marble is signed “Hulet/02″ Part of the fun of a Hulet sphere is finding the signature. One way to do it is to turn it in your fingers until you feel something very slightly scratchy and then use a magnifying glass.
