"Jason Erik Lundberg's stories, launched from the real world on a trajectory to the surreal, fuse the idle daydream with the desperate heart. You should read them."—John Kessel, author of The Baum Plan for Financial Independence and Other Stories Strange superheroes and the magic of the quotidian; stories of piercing darkness and quirky, surreal humor; writing from the heart and soul; phantasmagorical journeys into what it means to be human. Strange Mammals collects together stylish and elegant short fiction that knows no boundaries. Stories that are by turns fantastical, realist and strange, but which always move and surprise. A breathtaking collection from an author whose writing "explores the randomness of magical occurrences" (Green Man Review) and "teems with imagination, location, originality, and fine writing" (Jeffrey Ford).
