Editorial Reviews


"Duda's offerings are saturated with the hopelessness of Kafka yet have a poignancy found in the best shortstories of Anne Tyler. The themes of child abuse and selfishness coupled with their long-lasting effect on the lives of both the victims andothers they are in relationship with permeate the collection, giving itcohesiveness as well as depth. The author's tales may not provide thehappy ending many readers crave, but their probing of the innertragedies that so many people deal with make them well worth reading."

Reviewed by John E. Roper of The US Review

From the Author

Big Little Books and the Little Golden Books, two charming book formats, have held a spell over me for years. There's magic in these bewitching comics and fables: Dick Tracy outwits Flattop Jones; A poky puppy misses dessert.

Being thankful for these two book formats' inspiration, I wanted to honorboth series in my own way. (Technically, Big Little Books may beconsidered an imprint, not a series.) Bedtime for Seneca is my way of showing gratitude, although this book's stories aretragic. Taking the grittier elements and the limited number ofillustrations from Big Little Books, combining this with thecompactness of Little Golden Books, the result is a Shadow Book.

Now, Bedtime for Seneca is nothing like a Little Golden Book-my stories are dark and intended for older readers; but Bedtime for Seneca is a sort of compact, bedtime fable read. So I hope expectant readersmanage their...expectations. This book will take you into darker places,but you won't be accompanied by friendly creatures, unfortunately.

I'm not exactly sure where I'm going with Shadow Books just yet. I'dlike to develop this idea into an ongoing series or tie the stories into a much larger work. Regardless, I do hope you enjoy Bedtime for Seneca, its stories, and the book's format. I hope it all charms you like I've been charmed by so many other books-or, at least, my book keeps youinterested until the final page.
