An award-winning collection of fantasy short stories.

Imagine, if you will:
~ an arcade machine with the capacity to alter reality;
~ a young prodigy's universe-altering discovery in the strange world of quantum physics;
~ the ghost of a young man seeking forgiveness;
~ a young boy who honors a plea from his dead grandmother;
~ an elderly woman who hears the measured beat of extraordinary music;
~ a visit to a local pub by the devil himself;
~ an odd little boy and his grandfather, waiting for an extraordinary ride.

The 2013 Readers' Favorite Silver Medal collection "ZEBULON" contains tales that run the gamut from ultra-short flash-fiction to a sentimental ghost story. You'll find yourself in the middle of a fascinating collection. The stories in "ZEBULON" are tales of life, love and the experiences of basically ordinary people...except for the exquisite touch of fantasy.
