They say that sport is a substitute for war, but the line dividing the two is often hard to make out — especially in the no-holds-barred pages of Strange Sports Stories, where the spirit of good, clean competition gets a brutal body check from the darker side of human nature.
After all, the urge to be the best–and to crush your opponents along the way–is one of the defining characteristics of life, from the lowliest microbes to the most artificially intelligent of robots. Whether you’re scoring goals to appease the elder gods or rolling boules with the Devil, everyone wants to be a winner–and you can’t win if you don’t play!
