About this title:

Synopsis: Know thyself and nothing in excess. Just as the doomed sailors of Homer's Odyssey fail to heed one or the other of these maxims, and end up getting turned to swine or lured to their peril by the singing sirens, so too do the doomed characters in Joseph G. Peterson's new collection of stories fail idiotically in one way or another and end up, like those ancient sailors, facing the prospect of their own mortal twilight. Set mostly in Chicago and by turns gruesome, violent, comic, lurid and perverse, these stories are suffused with a metaphorical light that lends beauty and joy to the experience of reading them.

About the Author: Joseph G. Peterson is the author of three novels, Beautiful Piece, Wanted: Elevator Man, Gideon's Confession and of the epic poem, Inside the Whale. He went to the University of Chicago where he received his BA in General Studies. He works in publishing and lives in Chicago with his wife and two daughters.
