(2008)
And Other Strange Journeys
A collection of stories by

 
 
With these 17 tales, Ken Scholes invites you to his Imagination Forest. You'll find a toy bear of Little Brain tasked with a Very Long Walk and a mysterious metal man with the power to bring down a city and the heart to weep for it. Follow Meriwether Lewis west, seeking the source of a mysterious scrap of currency from the future. Laugh and cry as Andro Giantslayer recounts the highlights of his dungeon-crawling, dragon-slaying and diaper-changing career with Luendyl the Fierce and Fair. Learn exactly how Cain found himself a wife, see what superheroes get up to in their sunset years, and watch Hodgson and Houdini as they traverse the landscape of Hell in search of Michelangelo's Crystalline Ear. And along the way, keep your eyes open. You'll meet alien babies, messianic Santas, typing chimps and maybe, if you look carefully, you'll find some off-brand love and a little bit of hope in Drum Farrelly's supply room. Buckle up. Hang on. A ride in the Imagination Forest is bound to be a strange journey . . .
