Three ghost stories and six very strange tales including some science fiction, a parable and one unique, totally experimental piece of writing.
Splinters 3 contains the most way-out short stories of my three volumes. 'The Piano Player' concerns a long-dead, famous Russian composer. 'Badlands' is a Western of sorts. 'Smart Aleck' is scifi and about an interplanetary circus of the future. 'Late Payment' seeks out the ghost in the machine. 'Short Circuit' is scifi and an experimental piece, never before attempted, I imagine. 'Literary Agent' is scifi and about an alien visitor to earth, trying to sell his book about the locals, but without much success. 'The Telescope' is a life story on fast forward. 'Christmas Spirit' tells of Father Christmas arriving with presents for all the kids, but do we really believe in him? 'The Garden' is a sad parable in the guise of a fairy story.
