With today’s busy lifestyles there can barely be time to read anything. Fears have been expressed that English literature might become the preserve of a few specialist academics, as texts in... More > cuneiform script and hieroglyphic writing. The answer could be Short Humour, which can be read at any time and almost anywhere. Far Eastern, low cost, pirate versions of The Oxferd Inglish Ducksionery explain Short Humour as ‘Non-serious writing that is not too long’. Swan Morrison defined ‘not too long’ as around 500 words, and stories, poems and the like began to be written that could be read in their entirety in less than ninety seconds. A Man of Few Words is a collection of one hundred such examples of SH by Swan Morrison with a connecting theme of life in contemporary Britain. In addition, The Short Humour Site has been created at www.short-humour.org.uk. This site aims to promote the reading and writing of SH both in Britain and throughout the world and to showcase the work of writers of the genre.< Less

The Encuentro Book Two By Richard David Kennedy
Paperback: $23.95
Prints in 3-5 business days
The Encuentro isn’t just another novel. A fairy tale in novel form– told as a farce, presented like a play, and executed like a movie, it is indeed “novel” in every way. It is... More > very much as advertised: “A Risqué Fairy Tale For Contemporary Adults”– very mature adults. It is also Kennedy as his innovated best– “pulling out all the stops,” and turning the medium on its head to make a gut-busting spoof that turns out not to be such a “spoof” after all. So, while the subject matter is bawdy, the humor outrageous and the wit nonpareil, it is, to be sure, a deeply profound exposition of the nature and meaning of life at the end of the day. It is, as he has stated, “probably (my) best symphony yet,” and destined to be an instant classic. Where else will you find a novel’s author portraying himself in his own book as a “movie director?”< Less
