Each contains a degree of nostalgia, suspense and atonement. Subplots abound for intrigue and deception. They are written to arouse the readers curiosity and to compel one to scurry to the end. Being short stories each can be read in one gulp, making them ideal for filling in times such as waiting for appointments, flying or just passing the time. Stump City is a story about a twelve-year old boy growing up in a small city during 1942. It relates to the things a boy in those days did for fun and adventure. Of course, there was the ever-present older bully. The Decoy tells the story of college-aged boys playing baseball in the low minors in the year 1946. It takes you inside the lives of young men trying to become professional ball players. You can actually see yourself being part of the team and pulling for victories. Oh, My God! has its setting in corporate America in the 1970s and describes the often-occurring saga of a co-worker undercutting his peers in order to please the boss. A bit of melodrama is blended in to keep the reader guessing. Helen and Harold are an older couple living in the early 1940s during the Great Depression and looking forward to retirement. A pair of dishonest scoundrels enters their lives to try to dupe them. The Letter H Man is another tale of corporate America with flashbacks to a previous time when the main characters were in college. The tale is interwoven with eerie suspense and a bit of retaliation.
