About the author: Raymond M. Towers is of Mexican-American descent, although the term Chicano describes him much more accurately. He was born in 1970 in San Diego, California, and from an early age showed an interest in becoming a great storyteller. In fact, he was drawing and distributing his own crude comic books using pencil and blank paper, as far back as the fourth grade.
Alas, life happens, and due to both circumstance and procrastination, Raymond set his ambitions on the back burner for many years. While he did enjoy mild success in his submissions to literary markets, he felt he could improve his talents considerably by concentrating more fully on his writing, and for over a decade now, he has made every effort to produce a polished and complete product. The author is now ready to share his visions with the world.

I haven't read the entire book, only the first story "Gazing at Stars". In short: This is the best short story I ever have read! It's more than a short story, it feels like an entire life, Never have I seen such beautiful writing. It reminds me of Hermann Hesse but this was better: More creativity, more emotion, better storytelling.

This is a really fun book - imaginative, well-written, easy to read. The stories range from touching to just plain weird. In other words, I loved it!
