Item description for Scum & Other Tales by Jr. Bellush Richard...

This varied collection of short stories is filled with strange, amusing, memorable, and imperfect characters telling unlikely tales. Follow the 60's artist who calls himself Aardvark through the personal and social changes of the past 40 years in the tale entitled Brown Acid. See how two very non-heroic humans manage to survive an astronomical catastrophe in Soot. Hope that a junk food called Scum does not actually reach the supermarket shelves! From the first page to the last, readers will find all of the stories in this book entertaining and hilarious. The characters portrayed in the fiction of Richard Bellush are deeply flawed in very human ways, but they often manage to be likable anyway. Sometimes they are likable because of their flaws. We, as readers, hope they succeed in their endeavors and occasionally they do.

Reviews - What do customers think about Scum & Other Tales?

Scum  Dec 7, 2002
I am a big fan of this author and I especially enjoyed his book "Scum". This varied collection of short stories is filled with strange, amusing, memorable, and imperfect characters. You never know what is going to happen next as you turn the pages, but what you do know is that the characters you meet will be fascinating. This is an all-too-real depiction of contemporary life as well as pure unashamed space opera.Bellush is acerbic, funny, and thoroughly enjoyable!
An eclectic selection of twelve short stories  Oct 6, 2002
Scum & Other Tales is an engaging and eclectic selection of twelve short stories by Richard Bellush, Jr., about a series of eccentric characters, each one just barely on the other side of reality. From a would-be vampire killer, to the intelligence-challenged survivors of an asteroid impact, to the sellers of a substance called "Scum" that embodies all the worst traits of junk food and then some, Scum & Other Tales never disappoints in its out-of-this world settings that hold up a curved, funhouse-style mirror to the dark twists of reality.
