About the Book

This book is a collection of short stories, dealing with a range of themes. They include science fiction, as in The Abbot and The Malones; fantasy, as in Phoenix Street; social problems, as in Tetrahedron and The Bridge; and philosophy, as in The Greater Part Thereof. While several stories have a foundation in real events, all are basically fiction. Their primary purpose is to entertain, but several have a social message as well.
