Before the 'e' readers hit the market, people used to scrunch down in a chair or sofa, fold back the pages of a magazine and read a short story at their leisure. That was an experience that is as different as fast food is from home cooked pot-luck.
This anthology contains a baker's dozen of stories from that time. On the menu are some that are science fiction, some macabre, several humorous, but all are thought provoking.
So, sit back and muse over these flights of fancy in this selection of short stories that existed before Kindle and the multitude of other 'e' readers.

- THE CANNIBAL KING'S 50 WORD MENU -
So The Cannibal King, (with the big nose ring,)
invited his subjects over for dinner.
He said, "I thought I'd try something different;
tonight we're having a vegetarian dinner."
One of the Witch Doctors, (I don't remember which,)
asked, "So what are we having?"
The Cannibal King answered, "A vegetarian."
