"Discover original steampunk tales in this anthology of stories written before there were actual rocketships, atomic power, digital computers, or readily available electricity.

Plumage from Pegasus by Paul Di Filippo( Book )

1 edition published in 2006 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What happens when the tools and themes of science fiction are applied to the genre of science fiction itself-and to publishing in general? Surprisingly, the result is not a black hole of dreary self-referentiality but a supernova of literary comedy, in the manner of classicists such as S.J. Perelman, Stephen Leacock and Robert Benchley, and postmodernists such as Mark Leyner, Will Self and Steve Aylett

You can try to escape from the mundane, or with the help of Paul Di Filippo, you can take a brief, meaningful break from it. In the vein of George Saunders or Michael Chabon, Di Filippo uses the tools of science fiction and the surreal to take a deep, richly felt look at humanity.

<DIV>With twenty tales, a bold lack of restraint, and amazing stylistic diversity, Di Filippo makes strange bedfellows of a range of characters-from Jayne Mansfield to Pythagoras to Disney "imagineers" to the Virgin Mary-fit together inside a bountiful collection of surprises, humor, and the very, very strange. William Gibson has identified his writing as "spooky, haunting, and hilarious," and after you absorb all the shocks, you will inevitably agree.</DIV>

Di Filippo's Roadside Bodhisattva follows Kid A, a sixteen-year-old runaway, as he wanders a path laid out for him by the books of Jack Kerouac and Khalil Gibran. Searching for existential wisdom and something greater than himself, Kid A meets Sid, a veteran of life along the highway, and the two soon land at the Deer Park Kitchen motor lodge. What unfolds in Kid and Sid's interaction with Deer Park's colorful locals is an overwhelming mix of epiphanies and misunderstandings, insights and convictions, hope and betrayal. For Kid A and for all of us, enlightenment can be a rocky road to travel

For Rory Honeyman, it's a different story. Having inadvertently and, almost without noticing, invented a new form of cash cow, money makes Rory's world go strangely pear-shaped and out-of-control. He has an endless supply of blank checks that never bounce but he's being guided by an albino, hustled by a saline-snorting sandwich-obsessed gourmet, manipulated by a devious banker and befuddled and bemused by a never-ending assortment of attractive and baffling women. And, for reasons unknown and unknowable, after racing from the Great Plains to Mexico City to Canada to Europe, he's stuck in Hoboken and there appears to be no way out.<br style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" <br style="color: rgb(88, 89, 91); font-family: Verdana, Geneva, sans-serif;" Originally published: 2004
