Preorder May We Shed These Human Bodies by Amber Sparks

May We Shed These Human Bodies, a collection by Amber Sparks, is now available for preorder from Curbside Splendor Books. Here’s the publisher’s description:

May We Shed These Human Bodies peers through vast spaces and skies with the world’s most powerful telescope to find humanity: wild and bright and hard as diamonds. Here is humanity building: families reconstruct themselves, mothers fashion babies from two-by-fours and nails, boys make a mother out of leaves and twigs and wishing. Here is humanity tearing down: a wife sets her house on fire in revenge, a young girl plots to kill the ghosts that stalk her, a dying man takes the whole human race with him. Here is humanity transforming: feral children, cannibalistic seniors, animal wives – a whole sideshow’s worth of oddballs and freaks.
