Brain Frieze – New book, available now.

I’m very pleased to announce the release of my latest book, Brain Frieze: ‘Barnaby Goes Home’ and 20 more stories of humor, mystery, sci-fi, and the mind, four days ahead of its April 1 publication date. (No, this is not an April Fool’s joke.)

The teeming masses of my readership can find it on the Mulberry Knoll publisher’s site here, where there’s an up-to-date link for purchasing it on Amazon.

These stories are quite varied in style and content, but I think they’re all pretty entertaining. I’m hoping readers will find them satisfying and suitably off the mainstream. I write in many voices, and as a matter of fact, I apparently write about voices as well, so a goodly chunk of the spectrum of human personas may be found in the collection, from a zombie to God (or someone who thinks he is, or used to think so, or used to think he isn’t).

There’s a more marketing-like description of the book on Mulberry Knoll’s book page (click on the cover), but for readers curious about what’s in it, here’s the table of contents (below the fold):
