Minus One is an account of one man's coming-to-terms with his own mortality and the specter of separating from those he loves. It is a buoyant story of friendship chronicled through the observations of thirty-eight people in an exchange of e-mail. With surprising humor the letters capture the anxiety of good-byes while reflecting the wisdom that graces the ordeal of conscious dying. -------------------- "If Tuesdays with Morrie offers instruction on how to live, then Minus One offers lessons on how to die with dignity. It moves like a locomotive, punches like Ali, yet its message is strangely consoling. This is a powerful story that should be read by everyone - twice." Louis C. Saeger, M.D. author, The Historical Development of Bioenergetic Analysis "I found I couldn't put it down..." [Afterward, ] "I sat for some time in silence... This is a remarkable piece of human history and I felt privileged and enriched to have shared it with the people who lived it." John Hinterberger, columnist The Seattle Times ..".and my physical reaction to it was powerful. My pulse rate kept going up as I read on. By the time I finished, I was so emotionally ramped up that I had trouble sleeping." Kim Leatham, M.D. ..".never read anything like it. I got up from the couch only once - to get a box of Kleenex. Laughed as much as I cried . . . one of the best love stories ever." Carol Gray NPR reporter

A space liner is a brilliantly designed machine. It is not the kind of thing that disappears without good reason. The Q 97 bound for Alpha Centauri vanished with disquieting suddenness. Stelgen and his crew of expert investigators went in pursuit...and also vanished! On the other side of Infinity they found a nightmare galaxy where things of incalculable power plotted cosmic evil. Stelgen argued that somewhere, somehow, there had to be an answer to the apparent invincibility of these unbelievably deadly aliens. His problem was to find the answer and get it back to his own people. Trouble was, that someone from the Q 97 was working against him... When an answer finally presented itself it was so beautifully simple that it needed a genius to see it, and whatever his other qualities Stelgen was not a genius.

Many people ask why a 14 year old child would enter a convent and even more ask why she would leave. In Seventeen Minus Two I answer these questions. This book relates not only life in this particular convent in the 50s and 60s but the difficulty of the author to reenter a world she was totally unprepared to meet. Short stories of several of her classmates are imbedded in the book. Two of them have died; one from natural causes, one was murdered. The book tells of a child who experienced abuse and her struggle to overcome her feelings of inferiority as well as a lifelong battle with depression. All her life her main desire was to work within and serve the Church. She continually came up against the authority figures in the Church who disregarded her as a person and devalued what she had to offer.

The old aristocrat, Vera McMichael, has two terrible quandaries in her last decade of life. First, there is the teen pregnancy of her granddaughter, Clara. For the 1940s, a baby out of wedlock would foil the familys reputation, especially living in Smut near Vidalia, GA. However, Big Mama, the staunch matriarch, manages to save face by concealing the truth. Secondly, her daughters death presents a bigger dilemma. Obviously waiting like a vulture for Big Mamas demise, Clara is a vixen. The problem is the will of Veras late father. All her property, a life estate from him, is destined to belong to the undeserving granddaughter. Determined, Vera schemes and lies again to obtain her goal in a devious plan called The Fifty. The family lawyer tries in vain to advise Vera against this crazy idea. However, the two new employees, too nave to understand the deep ramifications and potential consequences, accept her offer. In a stupendously twisted irony, The Fifty eventually entangles the lives of two people yet to be born when it was incubated. Novelist Randall W. Anderson spins a tall, tantalizing tale. You will chuckle at what it took to bury Vera, abhor Claras odious words, feel Andrews agonizing pain, taste Jellys sweet success, and whiff Veras fragrant roses. Every mounting lie and discovered truth is absolutely appalling. Forget rattling. For ages the skeletons in Vera McMichaels closet jangled!

Whether we are eavesdropping on the imaginative Saturdays of a Portuguese cleaning lady or living through a divorced woman’s search for the elusive orgasm. Norma Harrs manages in this collection of short stories to absorb the essence of her narrator’s psyche with the clarity of a good actress who gets under the very skin of her characters. Love, either the absence of or yearning for, is the theme that links that stories in this collection together. Love for a family member, a friend, a lover, or a husband, and sometimes that lack of reciprocity, is the element that gives the stories poignancy and force. The variety in these stories keeps the reader always guessing. The author doesn’t limit us to the easy answers, but brilliantly provokes us to enlarge our own landscape.
