A parasite from Proto Space, summoning memory eaters, funeral machines eating teenagers, space rides to Pleroma, and a frog baby that transcends time and space. These are just some of the stories that will warp your sense of reality until you're living in Brett Petersen's mind and you won't want to leave. "A Confusion Wave beaming in from the farthest-out Far Out, scrambling up to unscramble our partially-scrambled minds." --Ben Loory, author of Tales of Falling and Flying "Petersen's stories are an acid-drenched, kaleidoscopic blend of genres reminiscent of Dick and Burroughs, but with their own unique breed of genius. The experience of reading The Parasite from Proto-Space and Other Stories is not unlike ingesting a powerful psychedelic--one that will leave a lasting impression of your psyche." --Brendan Vidito, author of Nightmares in Ecstasy "Reading The Parasite from Proto Space feels like you're on a footchase pursued by Mad Mr. Petersen himself. He's got a messenger bag full of creatures he spliced together in his basement workshop, and every time you think you're getting ahead, you turn around to check if he's still behind you and get smacked in the face by a 50-pound alien memory worm that needs you to validate its childhood trauma." --Charlene Elsby, author of Hexis "If George Bataille and Ray Bradbury had a baby, and that baby was GG Allin, and that GG Allin baby read Ursula Le Guin and Charles Bukowski in equal measure, and that now grown-up baby watched Beavis and Butt-Head reruns on summer afternoons, then we might approach describing the phantasmagoric mise-en-scenes Brett Peterson has put together here in this collection. The contact high one gets is contagious." --Daniel Nester, author of How to Be Inappropriate
