Publisher Description

Of all the stranger souls I've metnone are stranger than these,
& none stranger than me.
The thing is
all these selves
...are me

That say's it all. Stranger Souls is the fragmentation of a personality, mine. I am the killer, the vampire, the drunk, the lover, the star. As are you. The farther I go in, the further I reach out.

At this point most authors might give a synopsis or an overview of the stories, tell you his favorite ones, or the genesis of each. Stranger Souls is a pastiche of genre's, science fiction, sword and sorcery are represented as well as traditional fiction to create a whole. Each story is a crossroads, where the characters meet to try and understand the strategies each employs to avoid the void, as it were, to fill the hole we all feel within ourselves. The world presented may resemble a world you think you're familiar with, but it isn't. The whole being created is a replication of the known world to explore a truth of life. There are two 'cycles' within the stories. The first cycle takes place in neighborhood bar from the perspective of its different customers. There's also the Hollywood cycle, that attempts to study fame and the seeking of fame and how it affects the people involved. Stranger Souls is a journey from the darker aspects of life and ourselves, to the light, and trying to reconcile that darkness with happiness.
