Introduction by Jeffrey Ford
The Finest Ass in the Universe collects 26 fantastic and unique visions, 5 stories original to the collection, and an introduction by Jeffrey Ford.
Interzone said of her first collection, “Monterra’s Deliciosa is a delicious collection of often startling and outrageous tales.”
Elation, compulsion, exploration, love and exquisitely timed bullying, a lascivious oyster, a man called Eggplant, the dangers of smelling like honey pudding, the enticement of innocent toadlets, the unending day of deadness. The daughter of a part-time magician and a Las Vegas showgirl turns to science. Destiny points a young man to brassiere design. Suddenly orphaned siblings try to protect their most vulnerable. Fortunes craze in neighbourhoods living cheek-by-jowl. Unintendeds abound, as life cavorts in all its unclassifiable contrariness.
