Five Minutes More and Other Stories

Some of my first efforts are here, ranging from novelette to flash fiction size – a half dozen in all.

Five Minutes More – A young lawyer encounters a gorgeous ghost haunting his law firm’s new offices; at least he thinks she’s a ghost. I’ve been trying to write a story about a haunted law firm lo these many years; something always goes awry. This is the closest I’ve come.

The New God – An ordinary guy applies for a position as a god, but has trouble finding the right sponsor. A little knowledge of Norse mythology helps in understanding this story. Thanks to the Marvel Universe movies, such knowledge is not as uncommon as it used to be.

The Three Pillars – My re-telling of an ancient pagan myth about the fiery foundation of an ancient island kingdom. Don’t get your Celtic hopes up. It’s a Mediterranean island and the gods are Greek and Roman. 

The Dog’s Tale – Why the war between dogs and cats persists to this day. An earthy, Sicilian folktale my grandfather relished telling us kids.

The Transporter – An engineering genius, driven to the brink of a mental breakdown by his recent divorce, despairs that his breakthrough technology destroys men’s souls, degrading them little by little, beginning with his own. I didn’t think I had this one in me.

The Truth – A little fable about an old man, a young one, and how one grasps the truth. No kidding.

It’s the best introduction to the mind of Joe Eliseon, at the embarrassingly low bargain price of $0.99. At this level of authorial self-abasement,  you can’t afford to pass up Five Minutes More And Other Stories.
