"Make Something Up is a compilation of 21 stories and one novella (some previously published, some not) that will disturb and delight. The absurdity of both life and death are on full display: In "Zombies, " the best and brightest of a high school prep school become tragically addicted to the latest drug craze: electric shocks from cardiac defibrillators. In "Knock, Knock, " a son hopes to tell one last off-color joke to a father in his final moments, while in "Tunnel of Love, " a massage therapist runs the curious practice of providing 'relief' to dying clients. And in "Excursion, " fans will be thrilled to find to see a side of Tyler Durden never seen before in a precursor story to Fight Club."--
