About this item

Return to Ken Scholes' Imagination Forest in this second collection of quirky, off-beat short stories.  Diving Mimes, Weeping Czars and Other Unusual Suspects gathers seventeen tales spanning his first published story in 2000 to his most recent in 2009 including two stories set in the world of his Psalms of Isaak series.  You'll encounter cynical Santas and explore the dating woes of superheroes. You'll join God and Satan in the bar for a glass of merlot  and watch the hyjinx unfold as Reverend Sparkle Jones leads his rag-tag gang of misfits across a post-apocalyptic America in search of the holy grail to stem the tide of an alien invasion. You'll meet the Lady of the Lake in the Oklahoma Dust Bowl and bump into Abe and his backup singers as they do their part to save the world.
