Read full description of the books:
"What's in My Shorts?" is a wonderfully entertaining book of short stories that ranges from science fiction to fantasy to straight fiction.
Stan Morris's writing is clean and economical and I especially appreciated the ambiguity with which some of these stories conclude. Often the most powerful stories are those that aren't neatly tied up with a bow at the end. At times I was reminded of Ray Bradbury, both in terms of style and subject matter.
For me, the standout stories are:
San, the Amphibian -- great start to the collection. A wonderfully creative and engaging fantasy of a wealthy amphibian who acquires a servant girl from Earth.
The Qrim Chieftain -- Another fantasy, this time of a barbabian chieftan whose spoils of war includes the princess of the defeated population.
A Boy and a Dog -- A nicely ambiguous post apocalyptic short.
New Friends -- This is the longest story in the collection and perhaps the most difficult in terms of theme, but it is written so adeptly that it manages to engage despite the troubling premise. I particularly enjoyed the "interview" device.
In the description, the author mentions that the collection includes coming attractions. It also contains what appear to be excerpts from other works. This is perhaps the only area in which the collection falls flat. While still well written and creative, these additions feel incomplete and random, particularly in a collection that contains so many self-contained works.
That said, "What's In My Shorts?" is very enjoyable and showcases the great range, imagination, and talent of the author.

Stan Morris is an extremely ordinary man who was born in Linwood, California, during the Stalin/Truman era. His family moved to Concord, California, at the beginning of Reagan Mania of which his family was a part. As a teenager his pivotal moment came as a result of the Martin Luther King, Jr. Tragedy/Triumph.
He was educated during his wandering phase, receiving his BS degree when he was 25 (despite the claims of some sycophants/critics who say it was at the moment of birth.)
He married a girl with alien roots, and subsequently she became pregnant and delivered The Boy With the Longest Name.
They had another child just after they retreated to Maui.
He now writes, gardens, watches way too many organized non-killing sporting events, and eats foods for which there is no Anglic translation.
