Better Than Bad by Jack Hunter
These are the stories that populate your peripheries. Stories carried by strangers on the street. Stories of ordinary people dealing with impossible circumstances. Stories that cannot possibly be real because they are not your stories to tell.
These transient strangers will tell you the story of an abandoned brewery that sends ripples through an entire town, the story of a mass murderer having one of those days, the story of an ancient god unable to tie his shoes, the story of an influencer who cannot influence herself, the story of a guilt-stricken widow watering her plastic plants, the story of a fanatical priest finding a python between the decorations, the story of psychedelic virtual reality rebranding the world, the story of a crashing plane whose passengers must decide which safety procedures to trust, the story of a man determined to unravel his existence in a day.
Stories satirical and cynical. Stories comic and chaotic. Stories improbable but not impossible. These are stories spilling from the peripheries. Stories carried by strangers it is time you got to know...
