Easton Press, Norwalk CT. 2002 George Zebrowski "Swift Thoughts" Signed First Edition of only 1075 signed and numbered copies, this being number 404.
Get your thinking caps on. George Zebrowski's Swift Thoughts is full of science fiction stories that will leave you questioning both yourself and the world around you. And since this is SF, it will leave you wondering just what it is that the future holds for us.
There is also fun to be had. "The Word Sweep" leads off the collection with a metaphorical world in which spoken words have become actual objects, leaving city streets cluttered with piles of spoken clutter. Another fun one is "Stooges", which, in a manner very reminiscent of Howard Waldrop at his best, manages to connect Curly Howard with a strange tale of alien contact. It's a treat for Three Stooges fans everywhere.
