Imagination runs riot in these unexpected tales without human protagonists. Objects and concepts seem more than willing to share their emotions, though.

Book Description

Have you ever wondered why most fiction is so human-centred? Can you imagine a whole series of short stories about inanimate objects, concepts and letters from the alphabet? Then the unusual stories in The Alphabet Wars are exactly what you want. Weep with seat no.36, discover the creativity of a keyboard, read the thoughts of Time, Space and Death, listen to the discussions in a library, and enjoy the adventures of different letters against the background of the Alphabet Wars. This collection contains, apart from the six stories linked by the Alphabet Wars theme, a wide range of tales about the most unexpected of characters: bicycle wheels and books, gods and weather map symbols, and many more.

Written with surprising fantasy and creativity, and showing an unobtrusive sense of humour, these stories take you on a roller-coaster ride through fictional worlds that give your imagination an original boost.
