"Wooten's writing is honest, funny, moving...these may be 'shorts' but they made a big impression on me." - Clayton Littlewood, author of Goodbye To Soho and DWB: Tales Of Soho A Stroke Of Luck: a short story Chip Lowell is a sexy, spicy and self-confident celebrity chef who is just about to debut his first television cooking show. But in the blink of an eye, a life-altering incident forces him to change his menu and reevaluate himself and the people in his life. The "Dear Henry" Letters For two years Arthur was the humorist for the London magazine, reFRESH. In each issue of this gay publication he wrote a letter to his exasperating and fictional lover, Henry, explaining the never-ending reasons why they must end their relationship. But as we all know, sometimes breaking up is really hard to do. "Wooten's knack at mastering comedy through extraordinary situations is unsurpassed. If you loved his 'fruit series' you're going to relish what's inside his 'shorts'!" - Gregory G. Allen, author of Well With My Soul "Writing comedy is not easy and writing intelligent comedy is even more difficult. It is a quality that I've always believed is inherent and not learned and Mr. Wooten possesses this innate talent in spades. Characterised by an excellent comedic sense, his writing is highly imaginative with a sharp sophistication." - Indogene, The Indie Reviewer
Inside you will find a collection of short stories I have written for one reason or another. They range all over the map, from a 1920's detective scene to trouble in deep space aboard a ragged ship on a routine freight run. I hope you find my works interesting enough that you might want to take a look at some of my more detailed stories, including the Past Jumper series, or the stand alone novels, The Event, and Mirror Thief, which has the first chapter included inside. Thank you for your time and happy reading!
As the title suggests, Shorts is a collection of short fiction by the author, H. S. Contino. The book contains a combination of short stories and poems that were written over a fifteen year period. The subject matter of the work is diverse. There are light hearted pieces including "Grandpa's Tall Tale," but there are also much darker pieces such as "Hindsight." Many of the stories are infused with the author's unique sense of humor. A firm believer that writing is a practice, Contino enjoys trying new things and tackling new challenges. She often begins her writing day with shorter "warm up" exercises before moving on to her longer works. Many of the entries in this collection are the result of writing prompts, free writing exercises, and experiments. The collection demonstrates the diversity of the author, a self-proclaimed "hodgepodge." It also demonstrates how her writing style has developed over the years.
