Format: Paperback
Tale -- Noun. 1. A recital of events. 2. A usually fictitious narrative. 3. A false or malicious story.

These eight tales, compactly written, and peppered with O.Henry twists at the close of each that surprises and delights the reader, meet Webster's first two definitions.

Yet the narratives are not entirely fictitious, for Mr. Coy, in developing characterizations, themes, and unity, has drawn from real life experience in the military, theater, psychology, and public relations. A few of his characters' first names also appear to be derived from relatives or friends, such as Mandy (his daughter), Chris (his son), Kimberley (his sister), and Jerry.

The 66-page book can be read in an hour or less, but re-readings are worthwhile to gleam further life meanings in the text or, as the back cover says, "food for thought." My favorite three tales are "The Lost Valentine," in which an isolated woman learns to care for someone or something; "Repeat Play," in which a dead man's wallet perpetually winds up on another dead man; and "Curtain Call," whereby time travel to the past enables an actor to correct his ingratitude.

One might wish Xlibris had allowed or encouraged Mr. Coy to include more than eight tales, or to have expanded them into full-fledged short stories. The subject material is that enticing.
