By Philippe Evrard with Joyce Peters
Belgian Philippe Evrard was a vibrant man with a wonderful zest for life and a dream of one day publishing a collection of stories in the United States. Now a loyal and dear friend he met in 2009 is making his dream come true. Shared posthumously, Evrard’s stories—some fictionalized, some true—provide a nostalgic glimpse into his life and imagination, beginning with his childhood. In a small village in Belgium, Evrard details how a black singer at midnight mass during World War II captured the heart of all attending the service, including his own at just six years old. As his tales move through his varied experiences and people he met along the way, Evrard leads others down a fascinating path into not only his own heart and mind but also into the hearts and minds of others. In this whimsical and treasured collection of stories told in both English and French, a Belgian man shares his memories, hopes, and dreams from a life well-lived.

HODGE PODGE is an extension of my imagination. It is a collection of stories I made up to entertain my grandkids and to test my ability as a writer. Most of the plots are fairly simple, but I have tried to make them sensible and to follow an understandable pattern, although for the most part on re-reading, I have over-used a bloody finish for most of my characters. I hope I have made my descriptive passages descriptive and distortions of realities believable.

When I first started writing prose, my intent was to see if I had the skills to do so. I went back into the notes and stories I had stored away (I’m quite the pack rat) and found some that might be worked into a passable book. I put my poetry aside, (I had iUniverse publish Light Verse & Limericks) and decided that I had enough prose material to appease my ego. Thus, HODGE PODGE materialized to satisfy me so that I could leave something else to posterity in book form.

By David H. Brandin

David Brandin loves tales that end with an unusual twist. In his collection of thirty-eight flash fiction stories, he cleverly intertwines satire with political incorrectness to deliver one of-a-kind political, historical, science fiction, and fantasy tales that each come to a surprising conclusion.

Divided into four sections, Brandin’s stories begin by exploring political scheming as a president struggles with a church sermon on the seven deadly sins; a poorly qualified candidate defends his nomination to an ambassadorship; and asylum is claimed under unusual circumstances. As Brandin continues into historical and fantasy tales, eclectic characters are brought to the forefront as a statistics professor attempts to beat the odds on airplane bombs; an attempt is made to reengineer the wings of chickens; Chicago politicians struggle with a plan to reduce gang warfare; and a robot wonders whether sex is possible. In his final section, Brandin chronicles the life story of a small boy cursed by Lord Shiva.

Wings is a collection of unique short stories that delivers satire, humor, and surprise endings as a group of wide-ranging personalities try to overcome life’s most challenging obstacles.

“As Edgar soundly slept, moonlight sculpted to his ivory pillow as it began, at first like an expected flash of movement from the corner of his nostril. Then again, this time several coarse black hairs grew slowly from each of Edgar’s openings, slowly but surely moving cautiously over his lip and chin like a raven-black out-of-control Jack in the Beanstalk.”
-from “Coiffure Love”

“Buoyed by the concert, Elaine ordered two Black Russians, heavy on the vodka and light on Japanese custom.....During the last course the vodka blacksmith hammered me. By now the room was tilting and the vodka and butterflied shrimp were scurrying toward my stomach’s exit sign....First kneeling, then completely falling into the lower seating tier, I nested on my side, soaked in sour soup atop a middle aged couple....Never turning back, I reeled all the way to my little hotel by foot, partially digested shrimp and curly crispy noodles now decorating my lower trouser legs and those silly bamboo sandals.”
-from “Livin’ by Wits

“As a last ditch effort, I almost jokingly asked if he was a betting man, a simple Roman coin toss, heads heaven, tails hell, what do you say, JC? The attending angels blushed as he aptly flipped the coin, mid air I called heads, it landed on his nail scarred wrist, Caesar side up, heads, I won!”
-from “Dinner with Jesus”

“Reappearing, Olga the Orangutan, a bit squat, very muscular and quite hairy in the now splitting silk teddy showed surprising agility as she clutched Carl to dance; swaying slowly to the music, they formed an interesting couple: Carl, knees bent and stooping over in his tasseled smoking jacket; Olga standing on his slippers, hairy arms around his neck.”
-from “Monkey Business”

By Isaac M. Flores

Presenting a collection of poetry and short stories for a wide variety of tastes, Whimsy and Spice offers an exploration of themes both light and dark, wandering into tiny glimpses of a small world that appears out of our control.

Author Isaac M. Flores relies on language of great simplicity in both his free-form verses and his thought-provoking prose. It’s often said that your shoes are the first thing people notice about you—a message that John the Sole Saver certainly took to heart in one of the short stories in this collection. Starlight and the moon play into this collection, as do solitude and our first loves. The work ranges from snow-covered mountainsides to deserts and from small towns to large cities, sharing brief, informal presentations of great thoughts and writings of well-known authors along the way.

For Truly Sure

Know you this,
for truly sure,
my deserts and my mountains.

I will always be your lover
though you may forever
sit so lonely …
and so nobly all endure.

By Vic Amato

In “Death by Peanut Butter,” you’ll meet Twain, a mentally challenged man with a large stock of fluffy white hair who stuffs his mouth and makes a break for it.

Tourist Dan in “Manhattan Mendicant” encounters a downtown panhandler and resents him for being able to live in NYC. But when Dan sees the World Trade Center fall on TV, he can think only of the beggar.

“Camille”, a fun-loving artist, holds back information and her true feelings. On a hot night, it all comes down on her boyfriend out on the front porch.

Enter a world filled with meaning and unforgettable characters with the sixteen stories of Incoming.

“Looking for the ideal compliment for a summer sandwich at the beach? Some say tomato, I say Amato.”

This is a group of short stories and a novella. Some of the stories are from life experiences, some from history, some from travels or fables, some for young readers and others for adults.

Many of these have been on my mind for years and I’m pleased to finally offer them to strangers. The novella was written years ago, and altered many times. It was designed as a film for young people with an imagination.

The story about the holocaust is based on fact as is the story about Alfred Dreyfus.
