Five short stories from SF to action adventure.

These five stories run the gamut from one foolish man to another through an incredible future to a morgue to a pastoral home.
In "The Unfortunate Life of Thomas Mercer," led astray by a woman, a young preacher wrests his mind from the silly to the serious to give his death the dignity it deserves. "There's No Fool" like an old fool, as is proven again by Reginald Cranston in this short story excerpted from the novel The Advent of Simon Stark. In "Going Back," a gentleman does just that through the Age Exchange, trading his twenty-year life expectance for ten good years on this side of the ground. In "Sordid & Organized," we find that a mortician places great emphasis on the notion of waste not, want not. And finally in "Saved," an elderly gentleman has outgrown all of his companions except the gnarled old live oak tree on the hill. The tree is a great listener, but has never spoken. Well, until it's too late.

Harvey Stanbrough was born in New Mexico, seasoned in Texas, and baked in Arizona. He spent most of his early life in the home of his heart, the Sonoran Desert of southern Arizona. After graduating from a 21-year civilian-appreciation course in the U.S. Marine Corps, he attended Eastern New Mexico University where he managed to sneak up on a bachelors degree.

Harvey is an award-winning writer who follows Heinlein’s Rules avidly. His works have been nominated for the Frankfurt Book Fair Award, the Foreword Magazine Engraver’s Award, the Pushcart Prize, the BEA (NY) Book of the Year Award and the National Book Award.

Because he is unable to do otherwise, Harvey splits his writing personality among four personas and several pseudonyms. By the middle of October 2015, Harvey had written and published hundreds of poems, 111 short stories, 10 novels and a novella. He had also compiled 5 critically acclaimed poetry collections and 19 collections of short fiction. To see what he’s done since then, please visit his website at at
