    DescriptionThis unique short-story collection is more than a good read, it's an exciting glimpse into the future of fiction. The winners of MTV's 'Write Stuff' competition share their voices and visions in tales that are endearingly raw, undeniably bold and engagingly inventive. In NEXT TIME, a housewife encounters a gunman, an experience that changes her life, and her mind, in surprising ways...PINBALL is an edgy tale of a young mall clerk's hidden sex life...After her broken engagement , a cook in New York goes to work for a chic SoHo couple in ROAM...MOTHER captures the tragedy of a woman's illness, as witnessed through her daughter's eyes...In DAY OF THE DEAD, a humourously doomed relationship begins when a twentysomthing's boyfriend returns from an Outward Bound trip and moves in with her...Two old high school friends reunite and compare their very different lives in BLACK COWBOY.
