Blurb:
Science Fiction stories of the Weird and Mysterious, Terrible and Fantastic.

A startling collection of science fiction stories by one of the great names in this, the most fascinating of all the categories of fiction. Meet the strange boy who wooed and wed an idiot girl’s beautiful hands; learn the terrible truth about your cat; read the jazz story, full of jive and subtle terror, and another which proves quite conclusively that there are only 200 people on Earth, so you’re probably one of the others ….

You won’t just read these and the many other stories, you’ll find they happen to you!

‘Science fiction’ it says on the cover, but of all his collections up to his death in 1985,  E. Pluribus Unicorn probably has the highest concentration of horror stories, even without  the likes of Bright Segment and It.
