How Far Would You Go To Escape Your Life?
A mermaid turns out to be the perfect bait. A young man in the Badlands discovers that even in a post-apocalyptic dystopia, your basic business principles apply. And a man desperate to escape his life finds out he’s not the only one.
These are just a few of the stories in Honest Fibs, a collection of speculative and science fiction short stories that explore our perception of the world around us. Is there more to the world than we can see? How far can we trust our senses? And in a digital society, can any of us tell what’s real?
Review: This is a brilliant collection of short stort stories. I really enjoyed how Rossis skilfully started by telling several stories within a story… that of two men sharing tales while fishing. I liked it so much that I wanted the whole book to proceed in the same manner. Unfortunately, it didn’t and that kind of spoiled the mood for me. Notwithstanding, it has to be said that Rossis has a true gift for storytelling that defies reason…. Or as he would say it, ‘punches holes in the fabric…’
