Strungballs is a fantastical, dark novella from UK weird fiction author Mike Russell.
What are Strungballs? Ten-year-old Sydney is about to find out… but first he must have a cube of his flesh removed. Sydney will transgress everything he was taught to believe in when he embarks upon a journey that will reveal the astonishing secrets hidden by the red balls on white strings known only as… Strungballs. Inspiring, liberating, otherworldly, magical, surreal, bizarre, funny, disturbing, unique… all of these words have been used to describe the stories of Mike Russell.
Remember: Once a Strungball is inserted it must never be removed.
(66pp. Genre: dark fiction/science fiction)
