Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Without a single stinker or filler piece in the bunch. I was extremely impressed with the variety and quality of the writing. Intrepid Travelers is a solid collection of funny and fine travel-themed stories, poetry, essays and interviews that easily fits in a back pocket or carry-on bag."--Examiner.com

"Many short stories and poems here offer deeper meanings and address heavier topics. 'Something Like Culture Shock' by Dennis Vanvick...[has] good character development and a compelling story. 'Political Awakening, 1970' by Denise Thompson-Slaughter...it was refreshing to read a piece with this much depth. 'Pájaro Diablo' by Michael C. Keith...by the end, the reader is riveted to see what will happen next. Also features an interview with Randal S. Brandt...[which] has enough information and material to make for an entertaining read. Overall, this is full of great talent and exceptionally written pieces." --The Review Review

"Refreshing and well-written, Intrepid Travelers takes the reader to a wide variety of literary destinations, and makes even a confirmed hermit like me want to get up and go somewhere. Highly recommended." --James Reasoner, Rough Edges

"Prepare for an adrenalin surge as a thief tries to escape from armed Mafia agents in Hector S. Koburn's fatalistic 'Bloody Driving Gloves,' Steve Gronert Ellerhoff's brilliantly quirky short story, 'Apophallation,' [and] Michael C. Keith's unexpectedly moving 'Pájaro Diablo.' Intrepid Travelers is a coruscating cornucopia of humour, drama and big, beautiful adventures. Highly original and entertaining." --Lancashire Evening Post

"It's unique and the quality of the writing is amazingly high." --Luke Rhinehart, internationally bestselling author of The Dice Man
