Presents a collection of six short stories, including "Intelligent People Speaking Reasonably," in which two Iraq vets are set adrift in the civilian life of the Pacific Northwest, and "Son of Man," in which the story of the Manson family is retold by one of its members.

In these six stories, Chris Howard reasserts his talent for evoking the gritty and the apocalyptic with poetic grace.

Intelligent People Speaking Reasonably "follows two Iraq vets adrift in the civilian life of the Pacific Northwest.
"
Space is Kindness "witnesses the unexpected death of Missouri Governor Mel Carnahan from the perspective of a local reporter and a photographer rushing to the crash-site in 2000.
"
Darkstar "takes place in Dublin and follows a young outcast named Sailor through grimy, pre Apocalyptic streets as he tries to find the soulmate he hasn't seen since childhood.
"
Son of Man "tells the story of the Manson family from the perspective of one of its members.
"
How to Make Millions in the Oil Market "contemplates the absurdity of war from the point of view of a Blackwater contractor first in the chaos of Iraq and later in the relative peace of the US.
The epictitle story "Prince of the World "follows a mixed-race orphan named Labelle as he wanders north along the Mississippi, ultimately caught in the infamous Starved Rock Massacre in Howard's home-state of Illinois.
