A Little Chin Music tells the story of Dani Marroquin, a barber, who possesses a rare gift. She soothes her client’s minds of stress and sorrow when she shaves them. Little did she know that she would find herself having to bring peace and comfort to the man who brought unspeakable tragedy into her life. Dani’s quiet, regular world of hourly appointments, replete with diverse customers and idiosyncratic barbers, is shattered when her estranged son, a major league baseball player, suddenly comes back into her life.
Dr. Manwell's opus, his memory extraction machine, has brought relief to soldiers suffering from PTSD and to crime victims scarred by sexual assault. The process is simple - take away the horrible memories and replace them with benign, soothing ones. There's only one problem - the memories the doctor extracts from the soldiers and victims can be used to punish those who inflict the pain.
Green Serpent is a story about the distant future where people visit the Green Serpent, a business that lets them experience a virtual reality of previous memories of others in order to act out their wildest fantasies. All appears to be well, unless they try to change the outcome and deviate from the virtual reality.
