Fungus of the Heart is a collection of amazing and strange tales from Jeremy C. Shipp. In this work you deal with clowns, I myself hate clowns so were a bit freaked out by this particular story called How to make a Clown. There are also stories that have you guessing until the last moment such as The Sun Never Rises in the Big City where a rag is a duplicate person and a remote is much more than something you watch television with.

This collection keeps your feet on the ground so that you are able to walk the walls and then the ceiling. Then when you are done shaking yourself back into reality, you do it all over again. The strangeness of the stories and the fear, grabs a hold of you right away and you feel yourself drifting into the worlds that Jeremy C. Shipp has created.

Grab this collection if you want to be in a different world, experience a mind-altering sensation that can only come about while reading the words of these great stories.
