In Horny: Stories Selected & New, Greg Boyd reinvents fictions and fables we think we know and takes them in unexpected directions. From the "Minor Russian Classic" in highly-condensed form to the updated re-telling of the Lone Ranger tale in "Tonto," to the tabloid satire of "I Married Elvis," the stories in this collection celebrate the unexpected - often unraveling the threads of contemporary American myth and culture in the process. Only in Greg Boyd's alternate literary reality could there exist "Further Adventures of Huck, Tom and Jim," in which Mark Twain's classic characters travel the dry concrete of the Los Angeles River.
Mr. Boyd writes: "Though I cannot claim to have been raised by wolves, the strangeness of my family life did contribute to the blend of humor and surrealism readers have found in my writing. Certainly anything is possible and stories happen all around us. Driving through the fog one morning years ago I found a toddler walking in the middle of the deserted road. Like many of my characters, I travel along the indistinct frontier between imagination and reality."
