Truly amazing, non recycled, sometimes odd, and completely original, Memories of a Buburb is a selection of stories unlike any other. From the resurrection of sex on Earth in the distant future due to an accidental glitch in interplanetary relations, to an abandoned train station on the outskirts of Montgomery, Alabama in the 1960’s where an old love lives and refuses to die; from an orphan boy vying for the attention of his favorite boxing hero, to an extraterrestrial visit of an alien’s heart to Earth; from hunting down Bruce Lee’s killer and the strange, unexpected surprise that follows, to entering the astounding realm of a parallel universe through an invisible tunnel in a small British town at the end of the 19th century as seen from a group of young British teens and their teacher; from the abrupt, funny love predicament of two soon-to-be-wed lovers taking place on the docks of Venice, California, to an evasive British cargo ship high on the ship-sinking target list of German submarines in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean during the year 1942; from the Arsenic Fields of Nicaragua where a self-operating prison holds an American Secret Intelligence man whose wife is hell-bent on rescuing him herself, to a strange tropical fruit that aids a serial psychopath and his family into committing murders that defy any rationale; to the “true” legend of the American dream and the unveiling of the identity of the very first human who conceived it.
