Manisses is a rollicking adventure told through a thousand years of history, where you'll meet a brave native maiden, a demure pirate, Prohibition rum-runners, a vengeful witch and many others -- all connected through time by an inconspicuous pile of rocks.
When Rick and Annie Waldron, a bitter elderly couple, turn onto New Hampshire's legendary Kancamagus Highway in a dangerous snowstorm, they are unaware that their fate may lie with an ancient forest alive with a vengeful spirit. (Short Story)
This special edition of "The Kanc" includes free bonus chapter's from Steven R. Porter's novels "Confessions of the Meek & the Valiant and "Manisses."
Confessions of the Meek and the Valiant is not your father's -- or godfather's -- mob story.
It's a fast-paced chronicle of love, family, adventure and redemption. It is a story of a young man's quest to discover who he is, who he wants to be, and whether he can accept what the world believes he has become.
