Roads end. They begin somewhere, too. In between, all manner of things happen: friendship, betrayal, horror and maybe even joy. For some, the End of the Road brings love and happiness, for others agony and suffering, and for a precious few, sorrow may lead to something revelatory. The potholes and pitfalls found in this anthology are many, but for every character, there is an end of the road.

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. Yet, fleshy narrative makes indexing possible by way of a catalogue of characters who aren’t simply arranged, but rarities that act-largely at great personal risk.
