Three weird fiction stories that peel back the skin to reveal the darkness beyond. UNCANNY VALLEY – A salesman is given a tour of a sex doll factory, where the products may be more than simply life-like. STRANGER IN THE HOUSE – A factory worker whose mother is dying begins to truly understand the impermanence of all human flesh, and identity — his own included. SLICED BREAD – The Caudata Effect is a recent mutation that allows human beings to regenerate damaged cells quickly…a development taken advantage of by a near future totalitarian society. From Jeffrey Thomas, the author of Punktown.
