‘Tales From the Red Rooster Cafe,’ Shad Olson’s Collected Short Fiction
“Oftentimes the society in which we live dictates who we will become. Growth and self-discovery are simply fables rooted in lies, shadows that follow us throughout our existence.
But what happens when you begin to question this structure? In what ways might your life transform when you dare to recognize the political manipulations around you? The characters in Tales from the Red Rooster Cafe decide they want to try to find out.
A powerful collection of brilliant science fiction short stories, Tales from the Red Rooster Cafe astutely examines the darkness of mere existence found in all of us, that hidden part of us that makes us individuals and that dares to seek what we want in life—instead of what society tells us to want.
Being conditioned as a human is inevitable. Questioning how it’s happened is essential. These characters defy the structures around them and fight for the lives they truly want.
Written with a sharp understanding of what it means to be human in a fantastical landscape that attempts to shape who people are, this collection dares to question what it truly means to be alive.”–Amazon.com
