Bad Timing

And Other Stories
A collection of stories by

An Earthman's stranded spaceship is besieged by thousands of cuddly aliens whose idea of war is to commit ritual suicide; a teenage princess is kidnapped by an army of undead skeletons; a Chinese demon rides through the streets of Soho; and Toni Fisher tells Joanna Krenski, "I'm working on a calculation that will show density of shoulder pad to be in directly inverse proportion to level of intelligence. I'm drunk by the way."

From the satire of the award-winning Bad Timing to the horror of Feeding Julie, via the mind twisting paradoxes of Women On The Brink Of A Cataclysm and the out-and-out comedy of Agents of Darkness, these stories from the first 10 years of Molly Brown's writing career show her range and her versatility, and never fail to enthral. Several of the stories have been specially updated for this collection.

Genre: Science Fiction

Praise for this book

"Molly Brown is the best company imaginable. If you can't get a date with her (and you probably can't), the next best thing is reading her stories - which are funny, creepy, sweet, touching and wicked in equal parts. If you buy this book, you won't regret it in the morning." - Kim Newman

"Watch out! Molly Brown's Bad Timing And Other Stories is not so much a short story collection as an explosion of parallel universes and provocative ideas! Wow!" - Connie Willis
