Unwelcome Bodies

Unwelcome Bodies

Pain. Pleasure. The sensation of touch.we feel everything through our skin, that delicate membrane separating "I" from "other," protecting the very essence of self.Until it breaks. Or changes. Or burns.What would you do if you were the one called on to save humanity, and the price you had to pay was becoming something other than human? Or if healing your body meant losing the only person you've ever loved?Wander through worlds where a woman craves even a poisonous touch.a man's deformities become a society's fashion.genetic regeneration keeps the fires of Hell away.and painted lovers risk everything to break the boundaries of their caste system down. Separate your mind from your flesh and come in. Welcome.

    *Spoiler Free* After reading Glitter and Mayhem and reading Jennifer Pelland’s short story, “Star Dancer”, I was eager to read more by this author. Her collection, Unwelcome Bodies did not disap...

    This is a great collection of horror and speculative fiction short stories. I stared this book on the plane as we left WisCon and by the time I finished the second story, I turned to my partner and ga...

    Checking out the first story, but I have no idea what's going on. I don't like that. Not ideal for car listening. Of course the short stories aren't listed in the description. Naked people on covers i...

    When I heard Pelland was releasing a short story collection, I was very excited. Granted, I've only read two of her short stories, but the one really stuck with me. Pelland has a smooth, clean writing...
