In his confident debut, Greg Bechtel offers ten charged stories about the impossible-turned-possible - secrets, paranoia, sex, conspiracies and magic - that will appeal to fans of Neil Gaiman, China Mieville, Barbara Gowdy and Jonathan Lethem and readers of both speculative fiction and literary fiction alike. Boundary Problems vibrates on the edge of meaning, as carjackers, accidental gunrunners, small-town cabbies, academics researching erotica and confused physics students struggle to wring meaning from the strange events that overtake them. Bechtel's worlds of mystery, physics and magic constantly challenge his characters' pursuit of logical explanations. These compelling tales constantly blur lines and push boundaries - into the surreal, into the playful, into the irresistibility of uncertainty.
