The Easter Bunny came to our house yesterday. Well, not the actual Easter Bunny, of course. Me, as Easter Bunny. But my daughter still likes to believe in the idea of the Easter Bunny, so who am I to argue?
I think she’s reluctant to admit there is no Easter Bunny for two reasons: one, that’s one more domino to fall before she has to face the Santa issue; and two, Easter baskets are fun. Hers is filled with small gifts as well as eggs filled with candy and chocolate bunnies and Peeps (I love Peeps!), so I can see why she wouldn’t want to give it up.
Besides, I make a living promoting fiction, so why not?
And because I’m in an Easter Bunny-like giving mood, I thought you might enjoy a little Easter gift from me. It’s got a bunny on the cover—well, it’s an alien with bunny ears, but it’s the closest I could get <grin>.
It’s a Pulphouse book called Snot-Nosed Aliens, edited by Dean Wesley Smith.
Here’s the synopsis:
When you ask a bunch of professional writers to send in stories to a Pulphouse Fiction Magazine anthology called Snot-Nosed Aliens, you get a bunch of really, really strange stories. Perfect.
Known for high-quality fiction and off-the-wall stories, Pulphouse Fiction Magazine’s first fully original anthology delivers both. Head-shaking laughter, biting themes, and more out-of-this-world aliens than should be allowed.
Thirteen professional writers. Thirteen wonderful stories. An original anthology impossible to put down.

Besides, free ebooks are just as delightful but way healthier for you than Peeps. So, give this ebook a chance, too.
