    The Miniature Wife by Manuel Gonzales

    Like a shiny new toy: Gonzales' voice is so new and different and dazzling that you won't be able to put down his book. Plot notes: Eighteen hilarious and strange vignettes transport the reader to alternate universes where it's normal that dads are transformed into werewolves and wives are shrunk. The effect is like a modern-day Twilight Zone. A second helping: Want more Gonzales? Every week he posts a new short story on whatstheworth.tumblr.com.
