Hoping to reactivate my blog, I have another book review to post. I don’t write many reviews, but sometimes I like a book well enough.
Tule Fog Tales, Issue One
Lyndon Perry’s collection of speculative short stories, published by Tule Fog Press, is a pure delight, a welcome place where you can smile, reflect, and then hope. The stories, ranging from science fiction to fantasy to things in between, are more than mere entertainment. They offer a reason to feel optimistic about the world we live in.
As an insecure teenager, a Teenage Mutant Ninja Nobody comes to accept herself and others.
In Making Worf Proud a bullied young kid finds a way to thwart his foes with the help of Klingon lore.
The Memory Dish deals with the pain of loss in a sensitive and life-affirming manner.
An Astral Advent provides a bright, science fiction take on the Christmas story.
Casting a Vampire is the logical extrapolation of encounters with the undead.
Tucker & Mr. Chilly describes how a mysterious cat took charge and improved its owner’s life, actually gave him a life worth living.
This compilation is a gift people should grant themselves, a way to feel justifiably cheerful even when life circumstances would encourage the opposite.
Buy this collection, enjoy it, and recommend it to others!
