Scenes of Mild Peril
Across thirty disquieting stories, we'll encounter such tales as Sovereign's Last Hurrah featuring a team of retired super-powered villains embarking on one last caper with their legendary super-hero rival, A Comedian Walks into a Bar in which a hungry and ambitious amateur learns that the fabled secret of comedy may come at too high a cost, 83 where the interview for a dream job becomes a nightmare and In Vino Veritas, In Vino Mors where a dying wine collector takes part in a very special tasting session, courtesy of a very special visitor. You'll encounter possessed little fingers, magic swords, sanity-defying factories, stranded astronauts, Lovecraftian librarians, virulent plagues, and pork scratchings ... all with a twist in the tale, courtesy of the equally twisted mind of David Court.
