From the Author
I wrote these stories and essays between 1992 and 2006, and -- by some fluke in spacetime --managed to get them published. From the sublime ("Some Seconds Last Longer than Others", which was read on public radio) ... to the ridiculous ("Not Fit for Dogfood") ... to the successful ("Mason Jars", which won a 2006 international short story contest), these tales represent a wide variety of writing styles and moods.
The anchor story, "Engtanglement", has been a favorite of friends and family for years. It's possible, if I don't luck out and get hit by a bus, that this work will be expanded into a novel.
If you purchase my collection, I sincerely hope you enjoy them. Remember: Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.
From the Back Cover
What if you could preserve emotions in a Mason Jar the way you can fruit? What if you saw a homeless man using a $400 cell phone? What if some seconds lasted longer than others? "Entangled with Other Stories" will answer none of these questions, but the selections will make you think, laugh, grimace, snort, and make you wish you were watching TV instead.
