The Otio in Negotio By E W Farnsworth
eBook (ePub): $4.71
In ‘The Otio in Negotio’, E. W. Farnsworth has brought together another lively, intelligent collection of stories, focusing on the humor, romance and oddities of exceptionally active and... More > intelligent people in the contemporary world of business. As the title of the entire collection implies, these stories are highly allusive and full of hidden puzzles and games meant to pique the reader's attention. Names are significant. Allusions enrich the narratives. The scope of business is global, and many business plans resemble those of top startup companies in today's financial headlines. The fun in these stories is tempered by the constraints and challenges of business. Farnsworth's CEOs are human and infallible. Sometimes love finds a way, and sometimes it is cruelly eliminated from the personal equation. Where business triumphs, so does the human spirit. When satire chastens, the biters are bitten. A seasoned editor described lead story 'TwinLions' as "Breathtakingly new ... I've read nothing remotely like it."< Less

In pursuit of stardom, a talented underground boxer named Marcus Slaibron, stumbles into a chain of events that leave him unwillingly transported to another world. Determined to return to his wife... More > and the place he calls home, Slaibron is challenged at every turn as he encounters the oddities of the primitive world known as Bleshand.

More > depressed, just unhappy. However, in her forty-third year, fate allows William (Bill) Lee, a shrewd and resourceful man, a man entirely unsuitable for any woman, to cross her threshold and take hold of her heart.

These pages contain envelope research data (names, dates, maiden names), detailed descriptions of symbolism found on the face of each stone, transcriptions of inscriptions and epitaphs, and interesting gravestone oddities. I trust there is a little something in this book for everyone. Take my hand and let’s start the adventure!< Less
