Praise for Turbo’s Very Life and Other Stories

About the Book
Preview book
Short has created a world peopled with its own characters and filled with its individual geography. One of the best books I've ever read; there's not a false moment in it.
Turbo's Very Life offers such a wide variety of style and form - from myth to parable to oral storytelling to traditional narrative - that there's something here for everyone who cares about short fiction or just plain good stories, which I hope includes us all. Carroll Dale Short shows us ourselves in the lives of ordinary, and not so ordinary people. He even throws in a fish with two hands, that's right, hands, and makes you believe it. And you'll believe in the power of these stories.
Filled with verve and a distinct poetic voice, Carrol Dale Short's stories run the gamut of what it means to be human. Wonderful, indeed.
