The Homeless Ghosts of Calcutta is a collection of short stories, spread across genres and worlds alike. First is the title story, about a teenager with an unusual problem: The neighborhood ghosts are moving into his Neem tree! Following that is a Science Fiction/Fantasy hybrid story about a warrior monk tracking down criminal bosses. Until she runs into a particularly nasty problem. A comedy follows as an Evil Genius deals with divorce (a minor bummer) and something wicked lurking under his bed. A pair of satirical Fantasy tales come next. A dark tower where fantasy realms are generated is the scene of our tale about what happens when random chaos reigns. It is complimented by a heart-warming holiday tale...err...Perhaps not so heart-warming, more along the lines of evil needs to go shopping during the holiday rush too. However, they just send in the minions! The collection rounds out with a steampunk tale set in the Smoky Mountains of North Carolina. This group of stories has something for just about anyone.

Steven Bell is a wonderful generous writer. I have read his work in other sites.They are amazing,specially the science fiction stories.
What I love about Stevens stories is the way he weaves humour in his write ups.
I have dowloaded the P.D.F version of this book and am reading some of his stories again. very engaging and very well written.
