Paul Di Filippo
Four Walls Eight Windows, 1997.
I like both Paul and his work, but these stories are so wacky that you probably should read them betwixt other works; read one after another, they seem both too odd and a bit too similar. Overall Strange Trades is the most balanced and interesting of his collections (at least among those I’ve read), followed by Ribofunk and The Steampunk Trilogy.
I have many of Paul’s works available over on the Lame Excuse Books page.
