How to Tell if Your Frog Is Dead: Stories
"Gloria sits upright. She hasn't seen Lucifer since she was sixteen years old. On that occasion, he didn't bother to knock first. He simply materialized behind her, as she peered into the mirror of her improvised dressing table."

A tour guide leads a Valentine's Day-themed ghost walk, visiting the sites of horrific, yet romantic, deaths. A homicide cop solves tough cases using tips from his plants. Scientists discover a new species of religiously observant gophers, and a young math whiz, on the hunt for her escaped boa constrictor, ponders the theory of multiple worlds. Replete with dark humour and cheeky interrogations of philosophy and metaphysics, the thirty-three stories in How to Tell if Your Frog is Dead expose the fundamental absurdity of the human condition.
