Abstract:

Jesse S. Greever's short stories have been worldwide bestsellers, and now they're collected in one volume for the first time! From romance to humor to mother/daughter relationships, Greever's short stories capture a wide variety of emotions and experiences. A SUMMER WEDDINGIn the Summer of Love, one young man discovers both love and heartbreak. Flash Fiction. 5Rufus thinks he's received a desperate plea to rescue a pants inspector who is being held hostage in a garment factory. Upon discovery of the truth, it may be Rufus' own life that needs alterations. THE ANNEXA group of friends/co-workers take advantage of being moved offsite, from their company's main building to an abandoned annex, as an opportunity to relax and put in very little time doing actual work. The good times seem to have no end until a sudden revelation about one member of the group has them realizing that the starkness of reality has a way of intruding on the fun. RUMSPRINGAExcessive drinking. Chain-smoking. Methamphetamine addiction. Such is the life of Wilma Burrows, a woman whose lifetime has been marred by an inexplicable string of bad decisions. Scarred and shattered, she tries to manage each day as it comes, desperate to keep herself from plunging into the abyss, but the demons are always a few short steps behind her. Sixteen years ago, one of her many indiscretions resulted in the birth of pure and untainted innocence. But that shining glimmer of decency was whisked away, only to fade away as a distant memory. But some days, even the most faded memories have a way of reemerging in unexpected ways. And for Wilma, that day is today. COLLISIONSLewis Grafton lives a life of routine and isolation. His days are spent in front of a computer, shut out from the rest of the world, except for his late night order of the usual at Manuel's Serrano Bar & Grill. But, tonight, an encounter at Manuel's will be anything BUT the usual.
