The Deserter and Other Stories

by Norma Huss




The Deserter and Other Stories is a collection that varies from flash fiction to novelette. Taking place from 1813 to present day, the stories range from tall tale to reimagined memory to mystery to humor, with characters from child to ghost.

The title story takes the reader to a Chesapeake Bay fishing village during the War of 1812. The next group of stories range from a flash fiction tall tale in 1926 Alaska to a man on the run humming a 1970s pop tune to a child in 1941 knowing the world will never change to a 1990s eerie mystery with unexpected photos.

The final group of stories takes place in the 21st century. A driving lesson ends most unexpectedly, a baglady discovers an intruder, then a retired shrimper proves his undying love. The final story returns to Chesapeake Bay where the restoration of an old ship meets murder and deep-fried turkey.

Crab appetizer recipes included.
