Overview

Ruby And The Tree House by S. K. Thoth

This collection of short stories begins with a tale plucked from my childhood memories called "The Stranger," which depicts a child's loss of innocence during the 1960's civil rights movement. An atemporal fantasy titled "The Centaurian Eaters," deals with the always current issues of trendiness and addiction in society. ".com/treehouse," is a satirical ghost story that pokes fun at society's infatuation with the Internet. "Nora And Her Child" unveils the violent secrets behind what appears to be a happy marriage. A controlling mother pushes her own aspirations onto her sheltered, naïve daughter in a domestic drama titled "He'll Call." "The Independence of Saura," an anthropomorphic parable, tells the epic adventure of a woman's attempt to recapture her wayward small intestine. And lastly, giving this collection its title, "Ruby And The Tree House" is a coming-of-age, non-linear fantasy about an interracial family who spends their summers living in a mystical tree house.

About the Author

S.K. Thoth holds a B.A. in Comparative Literature from San Francisco State University. One of the world's most unique performance artists, he sings about legends of the Festad--a mythological world he has been creating since a teenager. He accompanies his vocalizing with violin, dance, and foot percussion and calls his art form "prayforming"--a public method of praying. A film about him and his work entitled "Thoth" won an Academy Award for Best Documentary Short in 2002.
He prayforms worldwide, but most particularly in the Angel Tunnel at the Bethesda Fountain and Terrace in New York City's Central Park. Currently, he is working on an epic novel-a fantasy adventure set in the Festad called: "THE HERMA: The Life And Land Of Nular-In."
For CD's of his music, or to book him for lectures, workshops, concerts, or tours, you may contact him through his website: www.skthoth.com.
