The 21 tales in this book blend soft sci-fi, humor, absurd, and literary fiction to take the reader on unexpected journeys. From a man with a closet full of wearable bodies, to a romance budding from a remarkable loaf of bread, to an interview with an angel that takes a dark turn, there are sure to be tales here for everyone.

Five tales follow a relationship between two professors, Amanda and Carl, via twists of sci-fi invention. The other 16 tales involve a broad range of characters steeped in soft sci-fi, humorous, or absurd situations.

Brad Ashmore has yet to wear a different body. So, while in his current body, he has been a technologist, animated film creator, lead inventor of patents, and writer… not necessarily in that order. He has engineering degrees from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and the University of California at Berkeley. He prefers “soft” to “hard” sci-fi to take a break from the quantitative rigor of engineering. His writing influences draw from both classic sci-fi and the absurd, for which Berkeley was ground zero. Brad lives in Silicon Valley with his family and a bad cat. When he is not at “Shut Up & Write” Meetups, he can be found in coffee shops writing or working on his next gadget. Feel free to drop Brad a note via the Contacts page.
