The mind of a befuddled muse is a maze of odd nooks and crannies where unusual ideas can flower in surprising ways.

This collection of short fiction by William Cohen-Kiraly contains 13 stories across genres, including science fiction, time travel, ghost and paranormal tales, and clown noir.

Stories in this collection include

  • Times of Life and Death: A field historian specializing in Tudor history goes back in time to witness history in first person, but becomes obsessed with the enchanting but doomed Lady Jane Grey.
  • Curved Space: The captain of a dying interstellar ship facetiously asks Earth to send pizzas, and he is shocked when a delivery shows up at his airlock.
  • Hearts Desire: The newly elected president of the United States wins a bet with the devil. She finds he can cause even more pain when he grants her wishes.
  • The Big Gumshoes: A clown PI must investigate the murder of his friend and mentor. Along the way, he finds love, battles a corrupt side show, and solves the mystery of the dog left at his trailer door.
  • Something That Will Not Let Go: A woman, whose life has been shattered, returns to her childhood home. She finds that the imaginary friend who helped her survive abuse is still waiting for her, and willing to help her exact revenge.
