Stanley the Whale represents a collection of literary gems from around the world. In its current format, it's a quarterly publication that showcases over a dozen authors that represent the hidden talent in the off-beat fiction genre.

The book contains the following works:


Laurel Kahaner's "Spiral Staircase" - an intensely visual poem, as dark as the author is pleasant.

Jeff Santosuosso's two pieces, "Spontaneous Uvula" and "Time-Lapse Banana". Both poems will leave the reader seeing spots of abstract imagination.

Flash Fiction

Laromy Bridges' "A New Livelihood" where an artist finds that inspiration truly is found inside ones own humanity, whether one wants it that way or not.

Trevor Keel's "A New Can of Paint" collides the banal and the brilliant with a slightly off-kilter trip to the local hardware store.

Jessica Knauss' "A Business Venture in Glue" beautifully marries surrealism and true life in modern fairy-tale form.

Calvin Seen presents "The Junkyard Blues," presents a day-in-the-life of a pair of criminals in the midst of their final jobs.

Megan Slade's "Daniel Delany" is a lovely portrait of infatuation.

Short Stories

Clyde Liffey's "The Jesus Show": a science fiction take on modern television programming.

James Scott Hannon's "The Way of Things" is a wonderfully rendered modern fairy tale about a chicken with a different way of thinking.

Daniel W Davis presents us with "Stevie and the Toad." When a man marries a toad, his close friends must support his decision in this bittersweet comic tale.

R. James Onofrey's "Rivers Should Never be Permanent" presents a look at relationships with a terrifically poignant eye.

Robyn Ritchie's "The Second Coming of Frank" provides us with an anti-hero of a different sort as Frank attempts to find his own version of love.

Joseph Farley and "Beware the Storm Troopers" is a biting commentary on the modern artist and the modern art patron.

Vic Cavalli's "The Tree Stand" presents an almost Calvino-esque story of a hunting trip gone wrong.

Jim Meirose's "In Study Hall", a gorgeously written surrealist work about a child in study hall being tormented by a creative and frustrated pair of bullies.
