Enjoy this must read collection of paranormal short stories that will have you feverishly turning each page with nervous anticipation!
‘The Phone and Other Short Stories’ is a collection of nine short reads that in all, creates a battleground between the likes of Hitchcock and Twain. It’s a compromise of satire and science, of time travel and tall tale, but mostly just good fun. Titles include: The Phone, A Man of Proverbs, A Bitter Climb, Stall, Gleason Snickell and the Search for Love, In the Woods Where the Widow Sings, Sweet Tooth, Awkward and The First Ride: The Real Story of Santa Claus.
The 19th century legend and humorist Mark Twain once said, “If that rapscallion Bryant ever makes it into this world, pay no mind and remove yourself, lickety-split! His tom foolery and short story shenanigans will decompose your sense of humor, as well as your belief in the hereafter or wherever your horse will take you!”
“I might have come across Gary in a fire tower up in Washington State he was scribbling something about time travel. Can’t say I really knew him. Though I understand that his old man sold one helluva Drake’s Cake.” – Jack Kerouac
For the last couple of years, Gary has quietly been making a foray into the world of fiction writing. Through his latest work ‘The Phone and Other Short Stories’ we encounter a more in-depth exploration of his humor and zany imagination, previously only hinted at in his musical oeuvre. Claimed to be not so dissimilar from the work of Tom Robbins, when Gary’s social commentary isn’t being portrayed in some thinly disguised literary game, his writing is just downright funny. He resides on the shores of the great Pacific Northwest with his pet barnacle, Ryan.
