Sometimes, when he prays, he asks God for a time machine, or he asks God to let him wake up to find that all the years since that morning were nothing more than a dream – he asks for anything that will get him back to that last moment together with her. This time he knows that he would stay! Even though the same tonnage of commitments and obligations would still weigh heavily upon him, this time he would refuse them. He would stay in that all-too-small bed, kiss her on the cheek, breathe deep that unwashed, boney body, and fall back to sleep. And even if he gave up everything for her and nothing permanent came of it, it would still be worth more than the choice that he made. ~ "THE NONPRODUCTIVE COUGH"

A Great collection of stories!"

TIME EXPIRED: AND OTHER STORIES is a collection of short stories that cut across genre. Some are ghost stories, paranormal thrillers, fantasy, horror, and the occasional story that is difficult to define. Within the pages of TIME EXPIRED: AND OTHER STORIES the reader will encounter:
  • A parking meter at a grave site that leads to unintended consequences
  • An ordinary man who is offered a new life by a wish-granting rabbit
  • A Terrorist attack against America by unleashing flesh-eating zombies
  • An ill-tempered house that has a habit of killing children
  • An ugly duckling that grows up to learn that fairy tales are not reality

These are only some of the stories found within TIME EXPIRED: AND OTHER STORIES!

Celebrated author, poet, theologian, and scholar, R. Joseph Owles uses words and emotion in the same way a painter uses color and texture, crafting stories that are both entertaining and moving, and occasionally disturbing. The imagination of R. Joseph Owles does not only take us to places that have never been seen, it also allows us to see what is familiar in new ways. The stories are sometimes humorous, sometimes terrifying, sometimes heart-breaking, but always told with an authenticity and poignancy that makes them hard to forget. TIME EXPIRED: AND OTHER STORIES proves that a story can be both "fiction" and "true."
