Seann McCollum is a poet and painter living in Portland, Ore. His short stories ask the questions: Why does Amber take zombies so literally? Is the outside-in world possible? What do those battery-operated animals get up to at night when no one's watching? Is it possible that the Smurfs really exist, and can their adventures teach us lessons about how we should be living?

The Smurfs aren't really having an adventure while Kevin's father tries to ease him into the truth of their loss. Or are they? And those battery-operated toys in the mall shop window, they didn't really make a daring escape, or did they?
If you read one book this year, it probably won't be this one. It'll be something you *have* to read because someone said you *have* to read it. So you *had* to read it. But if you read two books this year, this is the other book to read. Because it will take you places you've never been before.
You'll visit the inside-out world. You'll try to grasp the free associations of a young man in a panicky freefall as he can no longer cope with a confusing world full of intimidating people. You'll follow our hero through the daily challenges of adapting to life with a body part missing. You won't read anything else like these stories anywhere.
