About the Book

Legends from the Mist and Other Told Tales is a collection of short stories that weaves the transient with the intransient, places of lights and regions of shadows,  dominions  of spirits and of angels. It is the first and the last place, where all is lost, only to be  found again.  From the darkness of these tales springs forth the illuminating experience of the human spirit and human imagination.  These are our tales, tales that reflect the less worthy side of humanity, the secret tales that no one talks about.  They are legends from the mist whispered from the rich subconscious of our dreams.

About the Author

I am 48 years old, a graduate of UCLA, and a Veteran of the Viet Nam conflict. I served in Nam in 1970 and ’71. I was a Marine Corps Sergeant with a special MOS of supply. I served with distinction, with pride, with honor. I survived. I graduated from UCLA in 1977 with a special degree in creative writing. I have since published a number of poems in the National Library of Poetry (www.poetry.com) and other poetry books and journals as well as some short stories. I presently live in a suburb community of Montreal, Quebec. This novel, The Frogs, has an important significance to me, as well as certain literary merit.
