  • Six Years in May: Thirteen Stories from a Very Odd Mind on June 01, 2011

    The mind is odd, the collection of short stories fantastic! Sometimes delicious refreshments can be had only at the table of the Odd Ones. Six Years in May: Thirteen Tales from a Very Odd Mind - Excellent collection by Harvey Stanbrough. Gloria Esquerra
  • Stories from the Cantina on June 13, 2011

    From the wonderful imagination of Harvey Stanbrough come Stories from the Cantina and the characters who reside in the fictional village of Agua Rocosa: among them - Eufemia and Jose, a fated couple who, perhaps, never should have connected, their youngest son, poor discarded Maldito, Juan-Carlos, the storyteller who weaves tales that leaves readers wondering if the bartender is simply a spinner of nonsense or of truths. Accomplished in his use of descriptive language, Stanbrough drops readers right into the broiling, dry, dusty setting of Agua Rocosa. We disembark an old, lurching bus with tourists, and being just as hot and parched as they, we head with them into the shade and in search of cooling refreshments. We spend time in the dimly lighted Cantina, and like a fly on the wall, listen to the magical stories spun by Juan-Carlos. We leave the Cantina wondering if his stories hold truths. Is there indeed a prophesy out there in the godforsaken village of Agua Rocosa, and is poor Maldito a possible fulfillment of that prophesy? Stories from the Cantina, magic-realism at its finest. A fantastic read for all.
