New book, The Freaky Fungal Family Tree

New book, The Freaky Fungal Family Tree, coming soon.

  It begins with the discovery of the largest life form in our world, and ends with a bang! Fungi, like families, can extend over vast areas and are connected it some ways we understand, and in many ways, ways we don’t. The Freaky Fungal Family Tree is a short book of short-short stories that are about organisms and beings, living or not, throughout the known and unknown universe. Each tidbit served up melts fact with fiction, melds non-fiction with farce, and mixes truth with lies. Semi-true stories tailored for an era of tweets, emojis, and conversationally abbreviated online acronyms. For conciseness and convenience, let’s just label it as true-fiction. In this day and age of digital reading, with our population’s ever-shrinking attention span, brevity is not only desired, it’s simply de rigueur. After all, isn’t it the duty of the artist to reflect the times they live in?

  This collection of twelve compact chapters written with reckless references, ever shifting degrees of temperament, and multiple mentions of muddily remembered events in time, attempts to explain how you can’t have the weird without the we. These are anecdotes about the author and others the author has known, or thought he knew during the past sixty-five years of his life, such as; biological family members, spouses, friends, lovers, ghosts, extraterrestrial and terrestrial aliens, a few individuals only through electronic communication such as the internet and telephone, and several pets who have shared some space with him on this big ball of fun we all call planet Earth—while growing up, growing old and getting past the past. Imaginative accounts that are not only about him, they’re about you as well.

  Fungi and human families are the threads that tie the fabric of all these tales together. In The Freaky Fungal Family Tree there are few things that are as they appear to be. You’ve been duly warned. Now, from this point on—read at your own risk!
