Read full description of the books:
There are two stories in this collection. They are similar in a certain respect and they are so different in their execution.
The first story titled "Origin Story" is copy write 2006 and was originally published in "A Public Space" Issue 1. It is the story of a young single mothers psycho/psychedelic musings on her life and of the fantasy world that sustains her in order to live her real life. This story left me kind of sad at it's conclusion.
The second story is "Secret Identity" from 2009 originally published in "Geektastic: Stories from the Nerd Herd". This is a longer story concerning a fifteen year old girl from Iowa who travels to New York City, via bus, to meet up with a thirty-five year old man she met in a chess room in a video game. She arrives at a high priced hotel which is hosting a couple of conventions. One of Dentists and the other of Super Hero's.
We follow her adventures and run-ins with a number of quirky characters and employees of the hotel as she tries to meet up with the man she thinks she loves and to discover who she really is. This is a great story, well written and compulsive reading. Certainly worth seeking out.
"Origin Stories" accompany's "Stranger Things Happen" which is number 331 of 500 signed numbered copies.
