"The Portable Comtois" represents a broad sampling of the author's varied literary interests where horror, fantasy, science fiction, and literature intersect. Here, the reader will have a chance not only to delve into the author's thoughts on the literature of the fantastic, but to judge how well he has been able to apply those considerations to his own fiction. Written over a number of decades and culled from hard to find small press publications including the author's own Fungi magazine, the tales gathered here cover everything from the dark side of Oz to computer-age lycanthropy. Other stories will also take the reader on journeys to other worlds, other dimensions, and even other Earths where horror and wonder often walk hand in hand. And in a special bonus section, the reader will have the chance to see what happens when a writer puts literary pretensions aside and lets his hair down in order to tell no holds barred, politically incorrect adventure stories! So while the wait continues for Autumnal Tales, the author's eagerly anticipated collection of weird prose and poetry, long-time followers of his career and new readers alike can delight in this collection representing the "best of the rest"!
