A retired pastor, college professor, and newspaper opinion page editor, he is best known as the author of "The Circle of Life".


He has written about a dozen novels, several full-length plays, several books of stories, a book of essays, a book of poetry, and a book about his adventures in Panama.

Poetically frightening, filled with nebbishy gods and endearing demons, set everywhere from Beldonooza to the back porch, here are short fictions from James David Audlin. A boy turns into an orange to escape his tormentors. A planet with a million gods and only one human. A little deal with the Devil. A young girl whose dolls are alive. A living boy rides with the Caravan of the Dead. Someone who remembers only the future, not the past. God goes on vacation to Cancún - twice. Beldonooza, the City of Mists, from which no one ever returns. The author of "Rats Live on no Evil Star" and "The Circle of Life" arranges a bouquet of strange blooms, most of them based on dreams.
