A jealous girlfriend trips on acid; a spa worker is challenged to take control of her fate. A haunted jeep parks in front of student housing. A sex worker grows wings; a hitchhiker is picked up by someone she never expected. Welcome to the Big City, where anything can happen...and very often does.In this debut collection from C E Hoffman, explore the humanity of sex workers ("whores") and people who are proudly sexual ("sluts"). Each story questions stereotypes that are long out of date, merging horror with heartache, and magic with the mundane.
