       Additional Information  
      An anthology of eclectic thought, featuring stories ranging from the amusing to the grotesque.

    The first seven stories in this collection include a campfire story, an examination of the workings of Internet message boards, a first-person retelling of Simon Peter's denial of Christ, an account of a single day in the life of an English Springer Spaniel, a science fiction adventure, a political allegory featuring lizards and snakes, and a baseball story. The rest of the book is rather more eclectic.

    Random Words truly is a compilation of 26 stories with no common theme. Most stories include a fantastic (or at least improbable) twist. It's just like your life! Except...not....

    The short answer to the question of what this book is about: It's about everything.
