Boomsticks is Simon's second short story collection.
Discover fourteen new stories where the fantastic, the horrifying and the bizarre cross over into everyday life.
A bounty hunter pursues a fugitive robot through Japan's largest fish market, a man has a hellish appointment with his optician, Death debates mortality with Guy Fawkes, a boy prolongs the festive season by camping out in the city's largest Christmas tree, and a traumatised soldier returns from a routine tax collection shouting 'Nuns! Nuns! Nuns!'
Boomsticks also features a new novella set within the world of Simon's fantasy novel The Sheriff, in which four children find a magical boomstick of their own.
Boomsticks is available for Kindle and in paperback. Read more about Simon's first short story collection Breadcrumbs and his third collection Belljars.
