About this title


Gripping short stories that offer a chilling look at a potential society in which some of the worst qualities in mankind prevail. Each story's characters inhabit a world in which time and space and society have been modified following a cataclysmic event. In "The Earth" the earth itself is breaking into a new time-space continuum and the few survivors struggle to make sense of their lives. In "The Septuagenarian" citizens are sent to a benign death at age 70 with the Mercy-killing By-laws. In "The Death" survivors contemplate the devastation following a nuclear attack. These ten short stories are dark, but saved from being morbid by the human hope that struggles through in the characters.

About the Author:

Stephen Grosso was born in Brooklyn, NY, and spent his youth in New York City. He worked at the City University of New York until he moved to the Catskill Mountains with his wife and young son, where he devoted himself to his craft of writing. He has published 11 works of short stories, biographies, essays and poetry as well as many poems and articles in magazines.. His works are a spiritual reflection on the mysteries of life, suffering and hope. He takes a hard look at the brutalizing effect of civilization on people and on nature. And finally, he faces his own death with fear, courage and hope.

Stephen was a writer in love with the beauty of the English language and its ability to move and inspire us. His poetry and prose put into words the questions and longings we all find lurking in ourselves when we stop long enough to be aware of them. The reader will be sometimes uneasy, at times hopeful, and others sad, but never despairing. Stephen died in April 2006, still writing poetry two days before his death.
