World, Other World by Simon Just

    World, Other World, is a collection of fourteen - at times familiar, at times strange - stories. The short stories in the World side are general fiction and intriguing for any reader. The Other World stories, though speculative fiction, have characters and situations universal enough to make the non-science fiction reader comfortable.
    In this collection of short stories by author Simon Just we find that things are not always as they seem. The binding of the book, with its two-cover, flip-book format, is our first hint. Once inside, the stories show us memories, relationships, reality, even sleep, turned on-end and twisted to an angle we rarely get the opportunity to view.


AUTHOR BIO

    Born in Philadelphia, Simon Just's family relocated to Virginia when Simon was nine. This meant an adjustment from exploring alleys and playing stoop ball to exploring the woods surrounding their home and digging for diamonds in the coal field under an old oak tree.

    Raised by a mother who said Simon may be an alien child and should avoid any spacecrafts which beckoned, and a father who believed strongly in mechanical ingenuity, the sense of contradictions continued city/country, imagination/science. The format of this book, addresses that duality.
