Becomes One Hundred Stories: New Release

NEW RELEASE!!!

I’m pleased to announce my newest book, BECOMES ONE HUNDRED STORIES, is now available on Amazon in both Kindle and paperback editions.

These stories explore the characters, style, and universe established by the first three novels of the Meaning Blossom books, BECOMES THE HAPPY MAN, BECOMES GOD’S SILENT PROPHET, and BECOMES THE MEANING BLOSSOM.

As in the other Meaning Blossom books, the man, the young man, and the boy lead interrelated narratives with a host of other characters that reveal more about the man’s life, the problems he confronts, and the questions to which he seeks answers.

BECOMES ONE HUNDRED STORIES is the fourth of the Meaning Blossom books.

In the coming days, I’ll present new editions of the first three books in the series.

The first forty-nine stories are available in full on this blog at this page: Becomes One Hundred Stories

Book Review: A Baker’s Dozen

A BAKER’S DOZEN

She makes murder fun!

Almost makes me want to try my hand at it, but I’d end up the corpse. An entertaining romp exposing the fun side of the dark side of human (and other more-enlightened animal) existence. Replete with love triangles, Shakespearean situations, and a killer chicken salad recipe, Jones covers all the bases from out of left field and knocks it out of the park with aplomb–if not a bomb. Her clever cast of characters includes dogs, cats, and chickens, proving that no one knows what darkness lurks within the heart of our pets.

Highly recommend.

The old man had recognized the man, but the man was much younger than the man had been when the old man had known the man before. This impossibility did not trouble the old man. The old man just watched the man disappear into the place where the old woman kept rooms across the way, and he thought back many years to when he had known the man before. When the man had been older than he was now.

The old man thought back many years, but his reveries were interrupted by a sound from inside the place where he lived. The old man tried to continue thinking about the past, but the noise within grew louder. The old man could not concentrate like he had when he was younger—even a few years younger.

The old man went into the place where he lived and found his wife banging on empty pots with a hammer.

The old man told his wife to hush. He said it was not New Year’s Eve.

The old man’s wife said she had seen the man and she (more…)
