Overview

“Ether Frolics" is a collection of eleven short stories that touch on the delivery of medical care, and five stories that stem from meddlesome government activity.

The early medical anasthetic we know as ether can be used to make people do silly things, and those watching them laugh. We can snicker at The Thousand Year Old Man, who honestly believes having medical insurance keeps him healthy. Or patients standing in a long line to get their noses rebuilt. Or at a school bus transporting one little girl to school. Or a children's value-added-tax regime. These stories do not belong on “Saturday Night Live,” because I would not expect twelve-year-olds to understand them. Many adults will understand the topics, appreciate the resemblance to modern news stories, and probably have some whopping tales of their own to tell.

Meet the Author

David C. Heyman, M.D., retired after forty-three years in the medical practice of anesthesiology. Renewing his interest in creative writing, he is now pursuing ideas that he recalls from talking with patients, raising four children, and keeping up with current events.His first printed book is Money Grows on Trees! Economics for Teens, in which his main motive was to tell his grandchildren how hard their parents had to work to provide for them. Next, he wrote two eBooks—the first two plays of a series called Neighbors—based on families in rural Pennsylvania during the gas-drilling boom. Recently, he wrote Slip of the Tongue, a dark morality play about a small-town radio talk-show host. Coming soon will be a series of iconoclastic, humorous stories called Ether Frolics.He lives in Montoursville, PA, and enjoys reading and participating in local cultural events. He also plays the piano for challenge and relaxation.
