Stories 1978 : Before & After: Fiction
This is a collection of stories that span a great portion of my life, and in fact, show the changes in the way I think. What changes? I have gone from an stiff academic, literary type, devoted to high-mind ideals that provided my fiction with a bit of the bizarre and uncomfortable to today's writer who looks at the fundamentals and hypocrisy of life lived around me and comments on them in short story form. What has not changed, however, is the philosophy behind the fiction, the essential pursuit of the individual and the individual's right to exist outside the scope of the collective mentality and the abstractions it creates to govern the masses.
