"Story collaborations between cult figure Howard Waldrop and numerous other celebrated science fiction and fantasy writers are collected for the first time in this unique volume. ˘One Horse Town÷ breathes fresh life into an ancient tale, combining elements from the sack of Troy, HomerĂs early days, the last day in the life of a Trojan warrior, and the archeological dig at Troy. In ˘CusterĂs Last Jump!÷ the legendary Crazy Horse uses Confederate monoplanes in his famous battle against General Custer. ˘A Voice and Bitter Weeping÷ paints a grim postnuclear age where Israeli mercenaries fight Texans in a never-ending, hopeless war. Mystery, intrigue, and treachery abound in the Heian Japan setting of ˘The Latter Days of the Law,÷ where a clever man must find a lost prince. Each story features a riotously funny introduction by Waldrop and an afterword by the coauthor."
