You'll enjoy having a huge laugh reading the plot contrivances of this set of stories called “Ether Frolics.” But they all stem from some kernel of truth I have witnessed in a career of many generations. “ObamaCare” was upheld by The Supreme Court on June 28, 2012. I think this upholds a prophecy I made in one story, “Mary Smith's Little Problem,” a story I wrote in the 1960s.

Much as Theodore Carter’s title sea blob proves a challenge to classify, the other matters of importance in this, the author’s debut, story collection emerge as equally amorphous and downright slippery when it comes to categorization.
