Enter slightly mad worlds with this astounding collection of stories written by a writer who breaks all the rules of science fiction and refuses to apologize for it.

In "Slightly Mad Scientist," freelance inventor Harold Derby seeks to put the finishing touches on a teleportation machine after trying a series of get-rich schemes meant to fund his looming retirement. His invention works but with unexpected consequences.

In "Wishful Thinking," Frank Rogers, head of the Federal Aviation Administration, investigates a barrage of recent airline accidents and aborted takeoffs. After coming up with no answers, someone presents a new theory that questions everything physics represents.

In "Nightmare Hunters," Laura sleeps in a room with the same presence that haunts her dreams. It steps out of the shadows and gazes down upon her sleeping form, thankful to be released.

Other stories are driven by time traveling con artists, alternate dimensions and everything else unexpected. Journey to the unknown and question everything you thought was true with Slightly Mad Scientists, a collection of forty-seven short stories.
