Format: Kindle Edition
R.L. McSterlingthong has titrated his magnificence into a potent essential oil of reading bliss. The McSterlingScenes are fecund with tragical comedies and comical tragedies. The words wick from the page to your brain via your eye holes in a syrupy slurry of verbosity unmatched in today's mundane "literary" world.

R.L. is a local treasure in the Pacific Northwest (and world wide, as he truly is a citizen of the earth...making him local everywhere he's been). At a reading, he asked if I'd purchased his book. I told him I had it on Kindle. He grimaced a little, probably due to something unrelated, and snatched the device from my hand. His elegant signature now graces my reader! Sadly, on the front, and in very very large, sweeping strokes. But still...MAGNIFICENT!

This is a compilation book that is hysterical. Even from the cover, which you learn is Nectar with his invisible spear, riding a lion, riding a dragon, makes for the funniest conversation started you will ever have. The people who wrote this book are so clever, it has become my favorite book in a VERY long time. You won't be disappointed. You'll be laughing too hard at each story. Just a fantastic read. I recommend this book to everyone. I really hope and pray they make a volume 2. I am now a die hard fan.

An amazing collection of scenes from a range of works that sadly seem not be currently in print.

A brilliant voice bringing joyous laughter, mirth and humor recognizable to any lover of science fiction and/or fantasy.

The man, the mystery, the McSterlingthong.

Format: Paperback
As the premier writer of fantasy R.L. Mcsterlingthong has done more for this single genre of entertainment than every philosopher, scientist and semi-professional librarian has for the advancement of mankind from ignorance. No truer expression of escapism can be achieved and thus while R.L. (as he is called by his confidants) has perfected this medium he has also destroyed it for future generations. For, truly, who could hope to compare to the likes of he?

The Alpha and The Omega of literary fictive prose, "The McSterlingScenes: A Treasured Compilation from the Collection of the Master" represents what every would-be bard, scribe, skaald or fairy provocateur could wish to achieve. For obvious reasons (not being R.L. McSterlingthong), they cannot. Though this work stands as a testament to the perfection we should all strive for when recounting tales of barbarian heroes, space-faring lycanthropes or hell-bent revenge-driven slaughterers of the fey-folk.

If you are new to the art of reading, I would recommend avoiding this particular work for the time being, lest you spoil every other work of fiction that has or will be written. But if you have been jaded by the length and breadth of fiction and seek to close out your existence with perfection, may I humbly submit, "The McSterlingScenes: A Treasured Compilation from the Collection of the Master".

And as always (in the words of the master himself), Gratitude.
