The Woman Who Married A Cloud: The Collected Short Stories

by Jonathan Carroll

Thirty-eight extraordinary stories from award-winning author Jonathan Carroll.

For more than thirty years, Jonathan Carroll’s writing has defied genre conventions. Known for his novels—including The Land of Laughs, Bones of the Moon, Sleeping in Flame,and many other compelling and often surreal stories—Carroll has also created an eloquent body of short fiction. The Woman Who Married a Cloud brings his stories together for the first time. In the title story, a matchmaking effort goes awry and leads one woman to a harrowing moment of self-discovery. In “The Heidelberg Cylinder,” Hell becomes so overcrowded that Satan sends some of his lost souls back to Earth. And in “Alone Alarm,” a man is kidnapped by multiple versions of himself. By turns haunting, melancholic, and enchanting, Carroll’s richly layered stories illuminate universal experiences, passions, and griefs.

Winter Interlude

by Sandy Loyd

Do you remember your mother telling you when you were little that you’d never meet Mr. Right if you were spending all your time and energy with Mr. Wrong? And what about the book out a few years ago that created such a hoopla with the single crowd – He’s Just Not That Into You?

Now, add into the plot that the two in question are enemies who regularly run into each other, given their current relationships.

The sparks start to fly when the two get stuck together for a three-hour drive to the mountains and years of misconceptions about each other are slowly being wiped out. It is in the confines of the BMW that the two begin their journey, taking them from being mortal enemies to lovers.

It’s the eve of the American Civil war and protocol pressures Casey to tell their hosts that Nate is her brother. No one more surprised than she is when they are forced to share a one room worker’s cabin. Super awkward.

Except this time her heart is broken. Plus, her best friend is mad, her parents are split up, and her younger brother gets escorted home by the police.The only thing that could make life worse is if, by some strange twist of fate, she took Nate back to the past again.

Which of course, she does.

Chickens In Birthday Suits

by Nancy Mauerman

I‘m a chicken you can trust, so you can believe me when I recommend this children’s picture book to all hens and their people. The acrylic paintings are very chickeny, full of watery color, and in your face good, especially the ones of me.

That was me because I thought I was going to starve to death. Oh yes, I had a little cake, but I just pecked a tiny piece of that stuff so I wouldn’t hurt Jillian’s feelings, and the situation definitely got worse and worse and I got hungrier and hungrier but I didn’t die.
