Humans share the oddest pursuit in nature: they must realize their being. With jaded instincts and a faded blueprint for living, the characters in Odd Pursuits embark on a number of eccentric quests. Each story in some way deals with someone on a slippery quest and, in the course of that quest, he/she usually discovers something he/she had not expected to find.
Sometimes, the quests are trivial. In the end, it matters little what the seekers seek. It is the quality of the search, the way the characters strike a balance between their ambitions and their findings, that unifies the collection. It's hoped that the reader will appreciate why so many of these stories lead to second thoughts about the nature of seeking, of "realizing our being."
