This book, being called Uncle Billy's Grimm But Wholesome Bedtime Stories, is the quaint and insightful short storied manifesto of first-time author B. Oscar Overbeck. With his unusual writing style, he tries to find an outlet in the mind to relieve ones pathetic pace in reality. There is a need for B. to interject his thoughts, while making the reader bring forth a comprehension, which previously before, did not exist. There is not one group of readers that he writes for. He writes to entertain himself, and if others are entertained, a complete satisfaction is achieved. An unusual quirkiness is presented with his sentence structures that make reading a completely different experience. The book contains twenty-two, or so, stories that range from Bush Hogs to just plain Hogs of character. (This is not to demean hogs in any way.) From The Wizard of Oz to Richards that would rather be a Dick his unusual opinions on nature and life are exposed. Some stories are not for the weak at heart or the extremely sensitive. These stories are meant to produce a thought process while bringing the story alive with one's own visuals not with blatant vulgarity or violence. You may not find that this book is your cup of tea bags, but let there be a promise, you will never forget these stories or the images that shall remain. He just provides darn good fun in a sincerely, subtly sick and sensitive fashion.

William Oscar Overbeck was born in 1956 before all hell broke loose in the 1960s. There is a childhood particular called Dreamhead where a true story develops into a terror that would not stop. He blames his favorite movie, The Wizard of Oz. A slight act of simple fate would occur with his future in writing at the age of nineteen, ending a special aspiration while thirty years later he would further that same desire of authoring at the age of fifty. His stories live through his sick and tantalizing mind. They are truly written for his enjoyment, but he lives and writes to incite and excite. There seems to be a different type of writing structure when reading Uncle and this relates to the underlying weirdness of his sweet scrawlings that stimulates a simulated happy button -- preferably red. Surprisingly, it seems to come quite natural. These stories are absolutely not for everyone. From religion to politics, from chicken hawks to Dicks, from completely crying through his mother's graphic ten-day death; these stories will not fail to provoke a reaction and not necessarily positive. He will guarantee his writings shall lack in boredom, while even creating the possibilities of enlivening and arousing a slew of observations and a few enlightening conversations. Mr. B. loves and admires the English Language and he hopes you appreciate at least one child. His soul is left open for you to read. Be careful, for it may nibble and possibly bite.
