The Time Traveler's Fool
by Carl Stevens

A Psychological Mystery of Literary Survival

In a dialogue over six days between a psychiatrist and a man claiming to be a time traveler you decide if he is a lunatic, a time traveler, a murderer, a victim, all of the above or none. Start reading convinced that he is insane and end satisfied that you were right all along. Start reading convinced that he travels through time and end satisfied that you were right all along. Then begin the endless discussion with yourself or others about how both readings can be right or must be wrong.

Whoever he may be he is an articulate weaver of tales hilarious and horrible which include writing love poetry in the body of a shepherd boy wooing his first love, leading a small group of would-be legionaries in the body of a commander who has gotten them into a royal mess in the desert, fleeing a lynch mob in the body of a slave who may have been better off before a helping hand (or mind) and much more. The Time Traveler's Fool is a rollicking good read but the reader who cares to dig deeper will also find serious literary themes of reality, perception, identity and the unintended consequences of good deeds. The Canterbury Tales in Neverland and The Charging Bull of Terry County are also on Amazon.

The Journey
by
Sherrie Lowe

DescriptionA collection of short stories and pieces, many that stemmed from exercises at the creative writing group that I used to attend. In some cases I have included the exercise so that anyone who’d like to try their hand might just do that. It is a sort of activity book for creative minds!

DescriptionWhat if you woke up one morning and your entire world had transformed itself? How would you and your family adapt? How would society rebuild itself or would it? The year was 2004 when the Cataclysm disabled every man made electronic and mechanical device and replaced them with magic and enchantments.

The Farthars had adapted to these too, using their magical abilities, but nothing could prepare them for the interdimensional creatures invading their world. The family realizes that they must stop these monsters before they destroy everything that the Farthars hold dear, and in the process, find their destiny. It is a tale about family, loyalty, betrayal, and forgiveness. It is also about humanity’s amazing ability to
