Just then, as I felt myself drifting into dormancy, a flash of light burned in my eyes, deep past my retinas, and into my brain. I tried to sit up and wake but a thousand hands held my body to the... More > bed. The flashes grew brighter and longer. I once again tried to wake myself but I could not. I tried to scream but nothing came out. I tried to pray but I didn’t know how. That is when I saw her. My eyes were closed yet I could see everything. The Lady in Black stood near me then moved seductively away. I felt myself moving toward her, being pulled and drawn to her. She kept pulling me with her eyes and yet I felt like I wanted to be pulled. Then she reached out of the dark and I was being thrust down a moving light tunnel, falling and tumbling and rolling downward to a bottomless pit, falling and flying out of control, until without warning I stopped abruptly finding myself in a dream and a world I have never been…< Less

“Watching The Skies & Other Beastly Tales” is Jim Marquez’s 14th self-published book in 8 years! A departure of sorts for Jim as he leaves the grimy confines of Downtown Los... More > Angeles and takes us on a surreal journey across the alien landscape of a forbidden Nevada desert (through the eyes of a ‘young Jack Morales’), tumbles alongside the inebriated canals of Amsterdam, looks for love in all the wrong places in Scotland, and has to run for his life in London! This collection of ‘Beastly’ tales of life on the rocks then returns to the warped sensibility of L.A. for a wicked homage to Nathaniel West’s “Day of the Locust” (illustrated by artist Emmeric Konrad), and finally comes to a crushing halt in Jim’s hometown of East L.A. In between, for how could he resist (?), Jim examines the base nature of man back on the wee-hours-streets of a changed & vanishing Downtown arts scene: Booze. Sex. Racism. Violence. Madness. Family fun for all!< Less

The man ambled over to the great cottonwood tree, surveying the land. The squirrel barked a high-pitched warning to the man from high above, alerting him to the presence of the wolf. The man was now... More > less than twenty-five feet away from the wolf as his black shoes trampled through the crackling leaves. He knew he needed to cut the man off from his only escape route-the boat, so he waited silently until the man passed by him in the leaves. The patient wolf decided the time was right. He uncoiled in one quick flash, sprung off the ground and landed directly onto the man's long black coat, sending them both tumbling to the ground and back into the leaves. The man's screams pierced the air, and he grabbed at his wounded leg as the wolf retreated backwards. The man dragged his bleeding, now useless leg behind him as he crab-walked backwards on his hands and feet, screaming for help. Suddenly a terrifying thought came to the man --no help was going to come for him on this Wolf Island.< Less

The Old Cowboy's Box By RR Tex Carroll
Hardcover: $22.80
Prints in 3-5 business days
In the late 19th century, Texas cowboys told their tales around a campfire while partaking of rich Arbuckle’s coffee with like-minded waddy boys of the open range. The stories these rough and... More > tumble cowboys told, while certainly meant to entertain, were also tales intended to make a point or illustrate a moral lesson. The short stories & cowboy poetry in The Old Cowboy’s Box are written in this oral tradition. Thus, they are as comfortable in the spoken word format as they are in the written variety. In fact, these stories & poems have a particular tone of their own when read aloud. So, if you like a good cowboy story with a dash of the moral reasoning of the ancient cowboy way, then I believe you might just like The Old Cowboy’s Box. And, if you can manage a good Texas drawl, then you might want to read one of these tales or poems to your children or Grandpa. I bet they will enjoy it as much as you do. Ride 'em easy, RR Tex Carroll, Ph.D.< Less
