By Bill McCluskey

“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.

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.

“A virtuosic collection of stories followed by the sharp blade of a killer novella as the final act. Gerard Bianco’s stories do not creep up on you: they fall upon you like a raptor plummeting, wings folded, golden eye ablaze. Their signature swirl of caustic irony is bitter, often brutal -- a gleam of talons and a sudden cry -- resulting almost always in a small death of the heart.”

—Dianne Benedict, Author of Shiny Objects

Following a devastating fall, Rita finds herself standing outside the dining hall at an independent living facility. She squeezes the handle of her cane, and her knuckles turn white. Her wire-rimmed glasses accentuate the tears she tries to hide. After eighty-two years, and a lifetime of memories, Rita believes she’s been abandoned at the mouth of a fiery dragon that will swallow her up—and she is terrified.

Gerard Bianco shares a fresh voice in short storytelling, leading the reader through seventeen vividly imagined journeys.

When a man purchases a remote log cabin in the Adirondacks, he believes he has found a peaceful haven, until he discovers a stranger dead on his living room rug.

A man, looking for a new adventure, joins a unique organization and quickly learns that getting what you want can sometimes lead to unimagined consequences.

Two couples set out on a vacation in Maine, only to find their dreamy trip has turned into a getaway nightmare.

A Sharp Bend in the Road redefines the art of the short story collection. Seventeen stories, built around absorbing characters, strong conflicts, and sometimes dark and absurdly humorous ingredients, prove that journeying through life is far from predictable.

Katherine is a strange Bronx girl who “hears” the voices of the constellations. Abetted by a building super and a disgraced NASA administrator, she becomes a revered faith healer, only to be betrayed by her inner voice, when it tells her to have a child.

Set in eras ranging from the sixties to the near future, Simon’s stories blend sexual tension, religious feeling, intellect and madness into a compelling brew. In a senior-living facility, a man plots murder with a woman he believes to be a famous author. A philosophy professor and her boyfriend contemplate suicide. Their every move followed by cameras, the contestants in a reality show need to complete a “main task,” but no one knows what it is. After years on the run from the F.B.I., a bank robber enters a monastery, while his lover/accomplice stews in boredom.

In the words of one of Simon’s characters: “The sacred and the profane lie close together, separated by the thinnest membrane, almost nothing.” Breeching this boundary, The Ballad of St. Katherine presents a fascinating set of personalities, some slain by their obsessions, others able to come to terms with their lives, or their deaths.
