Fiction. Short stories. Speculative fiction. A hunter of giant worms is surprised by the sentience of their prey. A flower sprouting in the palm of a hand delivers bad news. In an unknown country, power is transferred in hyper-sensual ways. Whether fantastic or seemingly mundane, the twenty-four stories united in A CAGE FOR EVERY CHILD unfold as uncanny encounters and brief sojourns in parallel worlds. Told in S. D. Chrostowska's slyly provocative style, each tale questions the stability of our reality and the meaning of our pursuits.
