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

Ralph Bowden has entertained himself by writing mostly fiction for almost 30 years, through and following careers as an electrical engineer in the aerospace industry, a history professor, a home builder, an alternative energy consultant, an instructional designer, and a technical writer. Twenty-six novels, four story collections, a volume of collected short fiction, and a three-act play reside, mostly unread, on his hard drive. He likes all of his word children. Realistically, some of them are probably flawed and maybe even terrible. Others might entertain readers besides himself, but Ralph hasn’t the time or ego drive to promote and sell, nor the stomach for collecting rejection letters. Self-publishing avoids all that and is quick. If somebody finds and likes what he has written, fine. If not, the world will go on (or not) just the same.

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!
