Fiction. Short stories. Speculative fiction. A hunter of giant worms is surprised by the sentience of their prey. A flower sprouting in the palm of a hand delivers bad news. In an unknown country; power is transferred in hyper-sensual ways. Whether fantastic or seemingly mundane; the twenty-four stories united in A CAGE FOR EVERY CHILD unfold as uncanny encounters and brief sojourns in parallel worlds. Told in S. D. Chrostowska's slyly provocative style; each tale questions the stability of our reality and the meaning of our pursuits.
