Dancing with the Velvet Lizard
by Bruce Golden
Thirty-three mind-bending tales of science fiction, fantasy, horror and humor by award-winning author Bruce Golden. Journey into other worlds, other dimensions and other times to meet an alien musician, an apocryphist, a hideous sun demon, a bedeviled baseball player and an old woman resigned to living out her last days cared for by a machine.
See what happens when a Native American shaman sends the government a bill for making it rain, and a 119-year-man drives his classic automobile into the middle of an insurrection, chased by flying cars. Discover a missing planet, lust potions, the color of silence, the wonders of phasing, the horrors of the withering, and the riddle of the whales.
