Covering subjects of love, loss, pain, desire, need, frustration and hope these stories are meant to entertain as well leave an indelible impression upon the reader.

"Love In A Cafe" moves the reader within the soft aura of love until the surprise ending. "Elijah's Coins" leaves us wondering about the great "what if" of life and just how blessed or cursed it would make us to change the future. "Reverieing" is a glimpse of the slow descent of one individual into his own personal hell. "Addiction, Obsession, Love", "Tenuous Webs" & "And So They Danced" look upon love and loss from different perspectives. "A Tapestry Of War" is a real war story and the consequences of war upon the psyche of the soldier. "The Sunflower" portrays how hate can insidiously seep into the heart of man while "The Heretic" will leave you wondering who the real heretic actually is. "Kapparot" will let you delve into the mystical world of Hassidic philosophy while looking upon man's relation to God.

From the Author:

As almost all authors will tell you, their work in writing is a labor of love. "Ancient Tales, Modern Legends" is a collection of stories that were written over many years, sometimes in great pain, sometimes with great joy and certainly is a labor of love for both the author and the reader. As colleagues read them, and some were published, I was prodded to publish the rest. I am the first to admit some of these stories are not "quick reads". It is my hope that they will make you, the reader, stop and think, perhaps just about they waywardness of life. They all are short stories in the pure art form of this genre.
In the case of a short story, the rule "less is better" should most definitely apply. Here too, I will apply that rule and let you peruse the description to get a feeling for the stories contained within "Ancient Tales, Modern Legends". I do hope you enjoy them.

From the Back Cover:

Ted Gross was born and raised in Manhattan, New York City and in 1978, moved to Israel, and currently resides in Jerusalem.
He began his writing career in University as the op-ed editor of the University paper and wrote a series of 8 editorials during that year. While in Israel, he wrote two children's books. "The Letter & The Crown" & "Of Rabbit's Wool & Camel's Hair". 
In 2002, Ted as a reserve battlefield medic ended up in Jenin, and the battles that took place there became front-page news all over the world and the book (as of yet unpublished) "Three Weeks In Jenin" is a graphic experience of what was experienced in this village during that time.
"Ancient Tales, Modern Legends" is a collection of short stories which were written over a period of many years. Ted's love of the short story art-form is apparent in this book. His early reading was greatly influenced by I.B. Singer, O'Henry, Cheever and Vonnegut. It has been released on Kindle and in Paperback. 
Many of the stories in "Ancient Tales, Modern Legends" can be purchased individually only in E-Book format under the "One Story @ A Time" series.
He currently is working on the "The Chronicles of the Children of Heaven" (a fantasy work) which the first Volume "A Tale That Is Told - Part 1" has been released on Kindle and in paperback.
A second collection of short stories is to be released as well, within the next 9 months.Over the years short stories by Ted have been published in various venues. "A Pot Of Gold" was published by Istoria Books(in their "Lunch Reads 4") with excellent reviews and is available on Amazon Kindle as well.
