Lost Creatures: Stories
Bestselling author S. G. Browne has delighted readers with his take on zombie rights with Breathers and what if luck was a physical thing you could give and take in Lucky Bastard. In his new book, Lost Creatures, he gives you a taste of many worlds with a delightful short story collection.
The anthology kicks off with possibly the best story in “Scattered Showers with a Chance of Daikaiju” where we get to experience a world where kaiju is an everyday risk and all Etsuko wants is to have a normal kid’s life and have friends, but her dad is a weatherman. He predicts not just the rain and sun but also the chance of a giant monster rampaging through the land and if he’s wrong, then Etsuko gets blamed by her friends. There’s a story told from the viewpoint of an element of the periodic table who lives a life with all the other elements and their various emotions and mannerisms. What do you feed a centaur? How does one stage an intervention for a werewolf?
The collection features fourteen stories, some previously published and some new to the reader’s eyes. A perfect addition for fans, or a great start for new readers wanting to try Browne for the first time.
