Thirty-six cities. Thirty-six stories of obsession. From ancient Thebes to present day Berlin, these little portraits of humans superimposed on their suburban environment are corroding treats thrown together in a past-modern beaker, landmark tales of love in the metropolis. A round-the-world tour of craving and decadence.

Brendan Connell must be counted as one of the most unique and talented purveyors of horror/fantasy/unclassifiable fiction currently at work.
[Connell] is a master of language, an endlessly inventive wordsmith who writes with a poet's eye and vision, so that each story is as remarkable and distinctive for the way in which it is told as for the content.
--Peter Tennant, Black Static
To say these stories are quirky wouldn't do them justice. They are weird, sometimes darkly humorous, wild, sexual, and unpredictable.
--Kathryn Johnson, Historical Novels Review
Connell's assured writing might call to mind such fellow-travelers as Jeff VanderMeer, Darren Speegle, Clark Ashton Smith, and even Italo Calvino. His deftness at packing so much into such short pieces is admirable. --Paul Di Filippo, Asimov's
. . . like drive-by fiction. --Boston Book Bums
