Philip Phogg is the imaginary great grandson of one Phineas Phogg. Phineas was an 1890’s British aristocrat, noted as a world traveler. Great granddad was supposedly the model used for the... More > central character in the Jules Verne novel, “Around the World in 80 Days.” Family lore had it that Verne had changed the spelling of both names, but all of this was just family talk as far as Philip was concerned. The following tale examines the unusual events that occurred in Philip’s career in academia. Phogg, who was intellectually gifted, apparently lacked the vision to anticipate what might happen in the future and more often than not, was either amazed by the serendipity or frustrated by the events that shaped his working career. We join the story in mid-life, and like the time lord, Dr. Who, we will use the Tardis, (actually a London Police Box,) to fly back and forth through time to examine how these events transpired.< Less

My Heart After Esther could be considered a philosophy of love in the skin of a romance novel, or a romance novel in the skin of a philosophy of love, but it is ultimately a story about love and... More > philosophy in a way that romances the two. In this work of literary meta-fiction, two stories are interwoven into one. The first story is about the translator of the second story, Gustav Z. Itohahn and his love for the author and his work he is translating, the mysterious pseudo philosopher Jorge Manuel Belmarez. In the second story, we read Itohahn’s presentation of Belmarez’s story of love, which dares to challenge every idea of love and marriage from the vow “till death do we part” to the old courtly-love edict that “marriage is no proper defense against love.” This new take on philosophical fiction may somehow find itself in the memory of its readers as more than an experiment in story-telling, but truly an experiment in challenging our deepest ideas and beliefs.< Less

Beautifully rendered, the stories in 'Rain Check' could well be the footprints and photographs of our own lives if we’d have taken risks as daring as Noe’s characters. Each misstep,... More > triumph and regret rings true. Reading these stories is like being a lucky voyeur who happens upon an artist with brush in hand, nearing the finishing touch of their masterpiece. Nothing is more potent than prose that lifts off the page and lands, like a well-placed bullet or caress, on the heart, and that’s precisely what Noe has done here. ~ Len Kuntz, author of 'Dark Sunshine' and 'I’m Not Supposed to be Here and Neither Are You' The tiny, potent stories that make up this debut by Levi Andrew Noe both surprise and delight. There’s wisdom in these pages, but also humor, tenderness, and magic. 'Rain Check' is a terrific read from a young author to watch. ~ Kathy Fish, author of 'Wild Life', 'Rift' and 'Together We Can Bury It'< Less
