Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction, Greg Hrbek's "Destroy All Monsters, and Other Stories" is a collection that explores what it means to be human--and inhuman. These ten stories have won an array of honors--and whether set in the historical past or in a speculative future, each is wildly imaginative and shockingly real.
In "Sagittarius," selected for "The Best American Short Stories," a mother and father search a dark forest for their missing newborn, who is either a child with profound birth defects or a miraculous creature. In "False Positive," a ghostly girl visits her biological father ten years after being aborted in utero. In "Bereavement," a marriage is falling apart following a child's accidental death, but a combination of myth and technology provides hope for a second life. Fantastic, horrific, painfully familiar, these stories are the work of a consummate storyteller.
