Musty Book Rescue League

Musty Book Rescue League

BY RYAN REYNOLDS ‘In any group or class of children, there will be some who for temperamental or physical reasons do not participate regularly in the usual team games.’ –Bernard S. Mason Years ago, when your stomach hurt and your brain felt fuzzy, your new shoes didn’t fit and the […]

Musty Book Rescue League

It’s time to honor a commitment. Over the past year or so, from the shelves of the library, to the depths of the book sale, to chance meetings in dimly lit secondhand shops; I’ve been a lucky man.  There are over 60 books now that I have met, fallen for, […]

Musty Book Rescue League

Musty Book Rescue League

Preamble (Perhaps ramble?): The physical act of writing, I’ve discovered, can have a curious similarity to say, a relationship with a close friend, separated by distance and alienated by a busy life, that may seem solid within your own mind as based on past experiences, but in reality can be […]

Project Bookpiglet: 'The Great Bear'

Project Bookpiglet: 'The Great Bear'

“The Great Bear” Edited by John A.  Murray Bears schmares.  Let’s talk about bears. The other day, I was late to work.  My phone was dead.  The internal alarm clock stuck on snooze.  Nothing too exciting.  The fun part of the story though, is that since I’m currently residing in […]

Project Bookpiglet: 'Hotter than Hell'

Project Bookpiglet: 'Hotter than Hell'

‘Hotter than Hell’ by Jane Butel The first time I met Rosie was in the garden.  I was seven years old.  She was nine.  We kissed beneath the warm and sheltering cloth of tangled vines, bumping our heads against tomatoes warm to the core from a watchful sun, laughing at […]

Project Bookpiglet: 'Las Vegas, City of Sin?'

Project Bookpiglet: 'Las Vegas, City of Sin?'

‘Las Vegas, City of Sin?’ by Dick Taylor and Pat Howell The sun is early to rise this day; the eastern sky an illuminated pastel painting swiftly changing.  A young mother steps from the bed, showers quickly and dresses while the children are still fast asleep – the youngest one […]

Project Bookpiglet: 'The Two-Story Outhouse'

Project Bookpiglet: 'The Two-Story Outhouse'

Every now and then, and I do mean once in a while, there’s a book comes along that needs no introduction; no funny lines, or contemporaneous, odd observations to illuminate its eccentricities.  It simply is, without discretion, an absolutely fascinating piece of supreme literation.  The essence of what Project Bookpiglet […]

Project Bookpiglet: 'The Joy of Sects'

Project Bookpiglet: 'The Joy of Sects'

If I make it through this alive, I’ll owe Jesus a cheeseburger. I really should have gone to church and made some friends a while back.  For once again, we find that the Day of Ham has descended upon us in all it’s Springtime glory.  And if I just show […]

Weird Book of the Week

Weird Book of the Week

“Your Erroneous Zones” by Dr. Wayne W. Dyer The clock is ticking.  The day slipping by.  And still I have no mission true, not a solitary, sideways clue of what to put upon this blank, awfully clean and bright white page.  I don’t know where this crazy week has gone, […]

Weird Book of the Week

I can still remember my Dad’s old Fire car; the one he drove for a short while during his earlier days working for the city Fire Department.  And it’s not the make or model or even color that’s etched in my memory, but two other features that left such a […]

Weird Book of the Week

Hiking the Bigfoot Country by John Hart The moment I laid eyes on “Hiking the Bigfoot Country”, I couldn’t help but be swept away by a haunting memory I’ve tried my best to forget.  It happened so long ago, in such a different time and place, that it sometimes seems […]

Weird Book of the Week

Weird Book of the Week

In circumspect pursuit of supinely divined literary delectations, notwithstanding erstwhile proficiency in such piffling matters considering the breadth of sullen sanctimoniousness our globe engulfs at present, one warm and fainéant afternoon not so very long ago, a fortuitous encounter with an unassuming book enkindled an expansive voyage of luciferous rumination, […]

Weird Book of the Week

Weird Book of the Week

It is a scene engraved in history.  A thin man in simple dress, with a bowler balanced atop his head, sways his body in measured arcs as his fingers fly across the keys, and raucous music fills the room.  From time to time he arches his back, stretching the aching […]
