The River Junction Writers debut their first collection of previously-published and never-before-seen short stories and novel excerpts in Short Tall Tales. From the jungle coasts of Vietnam to the villages of New England, explore the worlds of military pilots and race car drivers, of alcoholics and outcasts, of partners, husbands, wives and widowers, of love lost and love gained, all told through the varied voices of their characters.
Ups and downs, humor and tragedy are all found here. As in the real world, the lives of the people portrayed in these pieces of fiction don't always go as desired or planned, but as in the real world, they do find a way forward to face their futures with resolution, with new-found wisdom, and with hope for future days.
