PLACES; Eight Place Stories

Rated 5.00/5 based on 1 reviews
These stories explore the relationship between physical places and the lives of people in them or affected by them. The places – an abandoned factory, a lonely beach in winter, an old water tank, a beer joint, a cemetery and others – elicit all kinds of responses from all kinds of characters. Different stories are funny, creepy, sad, heart-warming, subtly erotic. All are thought-provoking. More

About Ralph Bowden

People have called me shiftless, perhaps because my careers have included electrical engineer in the aerospace industry, history professor, home builder, solar designer, alternative energy consultant, and technical writer/instructional designer. My writing compulsion began about 20 years ago. Other men golf, fish, carouse, watch tv sports. I write. At last count, 20 novels, 4 short story collections, and a play lurk, mostly unread, on my hard drive. I've not tried to publish anything except the story collections, and those only locally as Christmas gifts. If all goes well, I hope to publish most of my collected writing on Smashwords in the next year or two.

The Author at Work
Here is a frank picture of the author at his favorite avocation. Fortunately, he has matured with age, and now shares his thoughts and passions with others.

Review by: Jim Bowden on June 12, 2013 :
If you let yourself go you can experience a certain increasing warmth as you vicariously move into worlds previously unknown or, as the case might be, partly known but now expanded. They might be called "rainy-afternoon" stories, rather than ones you take to the beach or on an airplane. I would give them collectively four stars, but since Ralph is my brother, I'll up it to five!
