My Collected Short Stories, some of the best I have written.  Plus a literary textbook I edited for college.

THIS SUPERB, HAUNTING COVER WAS PAINSTAKINGLY DONE BY FREDRIK KING, MY GOOD FRIEND.  Besides this cover, my collection — our collaboration — includes seven of Fredrik’s illustrations for seven of my stories.  All of them are done in pen and ink, took a great deal of time, and display as much artistic skill and attention to detail as the artwork above.

In order, the stories (and illustrations) are:

1. More Stately Mansions

2. Daniel, My Son

3. A Spark from God’s Finger

4. Trophies

5. Until Time Cracks

6. World Enough, and Time

7. The Last Snowman

Richard Rowand, also a friend, wrote an introduction to the collection, “Lucky You.”

The collection was published in 1999 by Dark Regions Press in Concord, California.  Two hundred fifty copies were signed by both the author and artist, and it is out of print.
