Featured Book - Culmination by Holly Smith

When Ethan and his sister Ilana decided to use much of their wealth to buy, secure, and outfit a luxurious, isolated shelter, they didn't expect TEOTWAWKI to become a reality. When it happened, they didn't expect to so quickly find three others with whom they could share the shelter as family. When they did, they welcomed them, secure in the knowledge that together, they would be able to survive and flourish as they began the process of rebuilding humanity and civilization. They thought of everything.

Or did they?

Culmination is the story of what might happen to people faced with difficult and disturbing decisions as the world falls apart around them.

Caution: This story contains situations and events that some may find disturbing. Not recommended for young readers.



Featured Book - Hmmm?  A Tale of Mysterious Murr-Derr and a Girl by Simon Plaster

hmm.jpgHmmm? is a satirical tale of mysterious murrr-derrr, and a girl.

A middle-aged couple ---- Wynona Sue and Alex ---- are mutually smitten. They want to wed, but ooops. Turns out a wife who abandoned Alex years before ----Charlene ---- never got around to following through with their divorce.

Charlene simultaneously disposes of a longtime significant other. Under the impression that Alex, still her legal spouse, has hit the jackpot, she returns to the small Oklahoma town where Alex and Wynona Sue live, and demands a divorce settlement awarding all the marital "pots and pans" to her.

Lawyers get involved. Issues become contentious.

A private detective ---- Max "Maximo" Morgan ----is engaged, first to sniff out existence and identity of a suspected "other woman" in Alex's secret life, then to get the goods on Charlene's alleged adulterous relationship with an "other man."

So when WOMAN SUSPECTED IN FOUL PLAY is reported, both Max and a Police Chief Potter initially pursue love triangle theories; neither aware that two young nerds need human body parts to upgrade a female robot into a humanoid.

With no confirmed victim but these and other scenarios for murrr-derrr afoot, small town newspaper reporter ---- Henrietta ---- tries to figure out whodunnit to whom, while at the same time taking an online college course about mysteries of the classic love story in literature.

What happens in the end is startling.

Hmmm? is the ninth satirical novel penned by Simon Plaster, and like all but one of the others is set in the archetypal small town of Henryetta, Oklahoma.
