The stories in this collection are mostly fanciful and utterly devoid of logic. They are shamelessly concocted out of a blend of fact and fiction that defies everything except the necessity of having a free-wheeling imagination. Shakespeare, in a discovered letter, is revealed as being like a love-sick moose, groveling and pleading for an unnamed lady’s love. Is his love requited? It’s all in the letter. Vanessa Crispy, the Boundless Bride, gets involved with three men in the space of her one-hour wedding ceremony — and finds a way of resolving her problem. Or does she? In “Designing and Manufacturing.” an Englishman designs a better Rack during the last part of the 16th century. Along with getting rich, he feels he is helping society by ‘getting out the truth.’ Before reading “Toni,” it might be hard for many readers to guess who Toni was. The answer will come as an astounding revelation to avid followers of history. Hang on, everyone, for there are a lot more stories included here that are only slightly askew.
