Unveiled (Mostly Fictional Stories) By Marcia M. Guest
eBook (ePub): $6.99
Download immediately.
Each story in this collection unveils a phrase from the traditional wedding vows: From This Day Forward; For Better For Worse; For Richer For Poorer, and so on. The time periods and the characters... More > shift from the ‘80s to the ‘90s, back to the ‘60s and then up to the 2000s. Frankie is a father’s young daughter in one story and in another she has matured into a man’s new wife. Avery is one of the in-laws in one story and a helpful neighbor in the next. Vera is a middle-aged housewife in two consecutive stories. While the first six stories are fiction, the last story is non-fiction--my memoir. Teachers might say I broke the rules by including fiction and non-fiction bundled together in one collection, but it just came out that way. The funny thing is that some readers have tried to find truth in the fiction and lies in the non-fiction.< Less

The cook stopped singing and looked at her in surprise, "You're done already? My! My! What a fine help you are! No, I don't need any more help today." He smiled widely at her and then said... More > "For your help, I'll give you one piece of advice: If you see any gold pieces on the ship - throw them to the dolphins, never the sharks. Always throw them to the dolphins." He turned back to his stove and she stood silently puzzled, before asking him "Why wouldn't I keep a gold piece instead of throwing it in the sea?" The cook spun suddenly around with a wild and frightened look in his eye "NEVER! Never keep one! They are cursed, you understand? Never keep one! Throw them to the dolphins always! There - I have said too much - go now, quickly!" He spun back to his stove and continued working, singing once more, and she turned quietly and left the galley.< Less

Brian McFee is The Preacher. Kidnapped as a child from his home in Ireland and pressed into duty as a cabin boy on a clipper ship, McFee eventually found his way to America and a new life as a... More > western outlaw. His spiritual awakening came while in prison in New Mexico and placed him on an entirely new path, that of a circuit riding minister. But his past would not stay in the past. The Time of the Preacher is the story of McFee's attempts to find personal peace and salvation and of the forces that conspired to deny those things to him. His tale points to the trials many of us face in our own quest to become better persons and illustrates the truth of those words written by a song writer some years ago: Just when you think it's all over, it's only begun.< 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

“Beastly Bus Tales” is Jim Marquez’s 13th self-published book in 7 years! The premise to this one is simple: ‘Jack Morales’, our stumbling writer of extreme minor... More > celebrity from Jim’s novel “Pieces of L.A.”, has just one lousy wish: to get home after a raucous night of the white man’s whiskey. For this Jack takes the bus. And, there, kids, is the rub!For after the witching hour in the City of Angels many beasts go bump in the night, and we discover that Jack is not alone. Here then are Jack’s BEASTLY TALES; boots on the ground, pushing his way through the walls of madness and indignation, the wretched adrift, the drunken, the dealers, the addicts, the prostitutes, their pimps, the amateurs, the cops, the artists, the rats, (oh christ, the rats!), and the English teachers, molesters of the night all of them! Shameful, despicable gluttony; slithering its way into the second decade of the 21st century.< Less
Mother Nature's Daughter By P. S. Lutz
Paperback: $14.99
Ships in 3-5 business days
(1 Ratings)
A funny, disturbing, touching, mad, thoughtful, adult, childlike novel of rather disarming originality. The book begins with a woman's impregnation by a swarm of monarch butterflies and culminates... More > in a confrontation between the inventor of a compassion-arousing super drug and all of the tenth graders in Massachusetts. This book can be read as a big sweeping myth of America and the modern age, but if you prefer to enter its world and explore its oddly angled rooms and strangely shaped alcoves for their own peculiar sake, it allows for that as well. In any case, I can promise one thing: it won't remind you of anything.< Less

There is a lot more to Phantasmagoria than initially meets the eye. Each story has a way of almost creeping up on your with its profundity. P.S. Lutz has the ability to make you laugh your head off... More > and break your heart within a matter of seconds. A rare gift. The consistent thread to all the pieces is their invisible structure, a sure sign of a master storyteller. Ed Malone - Playwright/Actor In Phantasmagoria, P.S. Lutz reveals the full range of his unique and extraordinary imagination. It is a book in which wonder, whimsy, and hilarity co-exist happily with horror, bizarrerie, and bedlam – sometimes in the same story. To whom would I recommend this book? To literary adventurers, to seekers after the strange and beautiful, to those whose vision of life has remained, despite everything, weird, romantic, and glorious. Chad Walsh - Editor< Less

"Pieces of L.A." is Jim Marquez's 12th book in 6 years, and, his first NOVEL. Jim presents a murder mystery set within the suffocating walls of modern day Los Angeles. In its bars, cheap... More > motels, strip joints, galleries, coffeeshops, bookstores, the beach, the downtown arts district, & in the suburbs on the city's eastside. By bus, taxi, subway, bike, on foot, even the car. And because Jim is also Latino, "Pieces" arrives with a thorny cultural identity twist! Destined to be gleefully controversial! Yes, he goes there! At times blistering, juvenille, vulgar, confusing, sexy, unconventional, structureless, overwrought, shameful, scatter-brained, caddy, irreverent, uncomfortable, funny, sad, incorrigible, but mostly honest as hell. A more naked man on paper you will not find. Jim dares you read the entire book before saying anything ridiculous & uninformed. (This edition has new covers by photog Rick Mendoza, re-edited text,& 3 pieces ADDED AS A PREVIEW TO JIM'S FALL RELEASE "Beastly Bus Tales")< Less
