We recommend the following prescription: Strange Medicine - weird and wonderful stories for all that ails you.Strange Medicine is a fantastic collection of extraordinary tales of transformation by UK weird-fiction author Mike Russell. If you love the strange, surreal and unusual or if you are just looking for something different, Strange Medicine is for you.

Mike Russell is a British author best known for his books Nothing Is Strange, Strange Medicine and Strungballs.

'Nothing Is Strange', was released in December 2014. 'Strange Medicine' was released in May 2016 and the novella 'Strungballs' was released on Halloween the same year.

Mike Russell has staged many storytelling performances of his work over the last fifteen years. His shows include the use of handmade props, sounds and improvisations.

Mike Russell was born in 1973. He grew up in the small village of Pulborough in the south of England. As a child, he enjoyed daydreaming, art and writing strange stories. He now lives in Brighton with his girlfriend and their two cats. As an adult, he enjoys daydreaming, art and writing strange stories.

Mike Russell's next book will be released in 2017.


'Strange Medicine' is a collection of eight stories. Each one explores facets of our humanity and our feelings. Written with a peculiar style the book has stories for all of us. What I love about this book, as well as the first, is the awkwardness and originality of each one of the stories. The eight of them are different and unique but they all have this aura of geniality.

Of course I liked some stories more than other but as a whole, the book is another great addition to my library.

My favorites stories are: "Seventy-Two Bricks", this one is for me an odd love story and how to move on when your significant other is no more beside you. And, "Mime", which kept me reading and reading non-stop, you have to read it to know why.

I could speak about each story but you have to read it yourself. You explore all the emotions while reading this book, some stories make you laugh, others cry and other make you think like no other book.

Another great book written by Mike Russell.
