About the Book

An imaginative, strange, and boldly inventive collection of stories from a singular mind, with a new introduction by Mark Harris

In The General Zapped an Angel, featuring nine supremely entertaining fantasy and science fiction tales, a Vietnam general shoots down what appears to be an angel; a man sells his soul to the devil for a copy of the next day's Wall Street Journal; and a group of alien beings bestow a mouse with human thought and emotion

Fast, one of the bestselling authors of the twentieth century whose career spanned decades and genres, skewers war hawks, oil speculators, and profit-at-all-costs capitalism with wit and empathy, making these stories as relevant today as when they were first published in 1970.

Critical Praise

“Fantastical, oddly endearing stories rescued from the ravages of time...A collection of delightful and still relevant stories that certainly earns its resurrection.” — Kirkus Reviews
