Synopsis : From a writer who has won comparison with Thomas Pynchon and William S. Burroughs comes thirteen unnerving and often breathtaking stories populated by punks and angels, skinheads and religious assassins, streetwalkers and fetishists--people who live outside the law and and the clear light of the every day. Set in landscapes as diverse as ancient Babylon, India, and the seamy underbelly of San Francisco, these daring and innovative tales are laced with Vollman's fertile imagination. The Rainbow Stories ushers us into a world that bears an awful yet hypnotic resemblance to that of our deepest nightmares, confirming Vollman's reputation as a dark visionary of contemporary fiction.

Synopsis: The author assembles a crowd of losers, loners, lovers, deviants and criminals, all of them trapped by thought barriers which they have erected themselves, here made distinct by the ruling colours of the rainbow. The author also wrote "the Ice-Skirt" and "You Bright and Risen Angles".
