Chomu Press has released Brendan Connell’s collection of short fiction, The Life of Polycrates and Other Stories For Antiquated Children in paperback with a suggested retail price of $14.

Description: Turn these pages and let the sins and manias of human history pass in exquisite raiment before you. Heading the procession, The Life of Polycrates describes the rise to power of the ancient Greek ruler, his eccentric deeds and the fantastic personalities around him. And in the train of this novella witness a bacchanal of philanderers—a medieval holy man—a motorcycle dare-devil—and aesthetes of rarefied sensibility. This is a book of bizarre histories and cerebral studies that explores the darkest passages of the human heart and brightest depravities of the human mind.
