Titles By Stuart Warren
Once pristine, the American West is now desolate. Struggle and disillusionment are commonplace among the people. Opportunity is masked in exploitation. A novella in four parts, Tall Men and Other Tales is a journey through Modern Americana, preoccupied and made stagnant by nostalgia. The Frontier is dead and in the ruins of the 21st century, the great myths of our past must rise up and claim their rightful place in society, or be sentenced to fade from memory.
From the Author of Spirit of Orn comes a thoughtful meditation on what it means to be an American through the eyes of our greatest legends. A stunning work of Magic Realism, Stuart Warren's Tall Men and Other Tales is a testament to what Americans have endured, and a cautionary tale on the consequences of sacrificing our integrity.
Included in this collection is selection of short stories, "Other Tales," Post-American myths that explore the conspiracy of prosperity. Featuring coma patients, super-intelligent factory workers, and black-op pixies!
Cowardice, redemption, and the search of self are all in play as Conn—a twice bereaved, depressive blacksmith—navigates an unknown world to find a runaway boy with a party of deeply scarred strangers. On his journey, Conn is confronted with the atrocities of human history and must find a reason for life and hope in spite of the despair, cruelty, and absurdity of existence.
Set in Scandinavia and the North Atlantic, Warren pays homage to the cultures and manners of the Nordic people with an extraordinary attention to detail. Take my invitation and enter the world of Orn, get lost in its wild lands, and discover that the despair of life may be the strongest proof of its meaning.
