This book is a collection of tales about the adventures of Elves (and a little girl) in Southern Colorado, a macabre tale of a Caribbean cruise (you wouldn't want to take), the hilarious (and sometimes sad) misadventures of Mr. Throttlebottom and his hapless wife Emma told in four short stories, and a longer alternate future Novella about how Mr. Howard Hughes managed to establish a very unique hotel using his recently purchased Queen Mary moved to a new location a little further South than Long Beach. Each story recalls vividly a real place in this curious and interesting world or some real event in history.

After service on a US destroyer in WW2 and attendance at college the author worked as a research engineer for the University of California followed by a twenty-year career as a Navy Research Scientist in Lasers, Fiber optics and Camouflage. Dissatisfied with that, and after receiving a PhD in England, he began teaching Business Management at San Diego State University. This was apparently not his cup of tea so he began an extended career of teaching General Physical Sciences and Physics at SDSU. When not teaching he could be found serving as President of the Board of the SDSU Library Friends or giving public lectures on Jungian Psychology or the lives of 17th and18th century scientists. He is currently an adjunct professor of Astronomy at SDSU.
