This book contains such anecdotes as these: 1) Bob Zuppke coached the football Illini for years. In a discussion of football rules, someone described a play and asked whether the officials had made... More > the right call. Before answering, however, Mr. Zuppke asked, “Which team made the foul—Illinois or the other one?” 2) At a Westminster Dog Show in Madison Square Garden, a woman was selling an expensive coat made for dogs. Saying “We want her dog to look as smart as madame,” the saleslady held up a pink cocktail coat made out of embroidered silk with a lining of mohair. Sportswriter Robert Lipsyte asked her, “When would a dog wear that?” The saleslady replied, “After five o’clock.” 3) Shannon Martin was six years old when she won an age-12-and-under roping contest, for which she was written up in the “Roping Sports News.” Because she hadn’t learned to read yet, she kept saying to her father, “Come on, Dad.

Tales of the Hoofengoofers - SPECIAL EDITION By Alan Lance Andersen

Dressed in a white silk 3-piece suit and Panama Hat, storyteller Alan Lance Andersen delights audiences with his humorous tales told in country dialect reminiscent of Mark Twain. SPECIAL EDITION -... More > This volume of whimsical faery tales is typeset in Lewis Carroll's handwriting. Many of the tales deal with HOOFENGOOFERS, the magical little people who inhabit the Iowa river valleys. Unlike elves and faeries (their counterparts in Europe), Hoofengoofers are "real down-home folks" - dressing in bib overalls and floppy straw hats, carrying knobby walking sticks, and chewing on a piece of prairie grass. These tongue-in-cheek stories contrast the traditional faery tale setting against the Iowa farmscape - with prairies, round barns, farmers markets, Model-T Fords, bootleggers, Jesse James, and the Trolls of Northeast Iowa featuring in the narrative. This book includes many of Andersen's best whimsical tales - which he tells with a drawling Mark Twain style dialect.< Less

Tara of Helium rose from the pile of silks and soft furs upon which she had been reclining, stretched her lithe body languidly, and crossed toward the center of the room, where, above a large table,... More > a bronze disc depended from the low ceiling. Her carriage was that of health and physical perfection — the effortless harmony of faultless coordination. A scarf of silken gossamer crossing over one shoulder was wrapped about her body; her black hair was piled high upon her head. With a wooden stick she tapped upon the bronze disc, lightly, and presently the summons was answered by a slave girl, who entered, smiling, to be greeted similarly by her mistress. "Are my father's guests arriving?" asked the princess. "Yes, Tara of Helium, they come," replied the slave. "I have seen Kantos Kan, Overlord of the Navy, and Prince Soran of Ptarth, and Djor Kantos, son of Kantos Kan," she shot a roguish glance at her mistress as she mentioned Djor Kantos' name, "and — oh,... , many have come."< Less
