About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

A handsome leader comes to claim his long-lost bride after decades apart—and planets away. An ordinary metaphor turns out to be true—and reveals the real-life snake behind a corporate titan.

They’re just some of the eyebrow-raising and thought-provoking stories out of the mind of the imaginative Patricia Douglas Scott. You’ll meet the android who didn’t know how to love—until he met the love of his life; the bank manager who is given a ring that connects him to a chorus of extraterrestrial voices; and the apartment hunter whose search for a perfect place brings her face to face with a bizarre culture of cannibalism. And that’s just for starters.

In the great tradition of Philip K. Dick, the aptly titled Turns and Twists presents an alternate world where the profoundly bizarre coexists with the utterly normal. And in the place where peculiarity lurks just below the mundane surface, Scott reveals how similar the two opposite poles of this spectrum really are. It just might be enough to keep you up at night...

Deftly constructed at 51 pages, Turns and Twists: Short Stories From Patricia Douglas Scott is being aggressively promoted to appropriate markets with a focus on the Fiction / General category. With U.S. wholesale distribution through Ingram and Baker & Taylor, and pervasive online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble and elsewhere, Turns and Twists meets consumer demand through both retail and library markets with a suggested retail price of $11.95.
