Dark Shenanigans by Andrew Salomon
17 Oct 2017
When a tall foreigner accused of stealing honey is brought to the police station on the Greek island of Kythnos, Sergeant Laziridis’s uneventful night is about to take a very unexpected turn. A man regains consciousness and finds himself the only diner in a strange restaurant with some curious staff and a dinner literally prepared to be the meal of his life. Things fall apart on a newly-terraformed Mars. And then there are the pair of midwives from a secret society you never want to cross…
These tales and much more await in this weirdly wonderful short story collection. Dark Shenanigans includes the PEN Literary Award-winning story “A Visit To Dr Mamba” and the 2015 Short.Sharp.Story best story “Train 124”.
