"Gary Paul Bryant will wheel your gurney down the paranormal corridors of Life Everlasting, whether you're willing or not. A must-read short story collection for vivisectionist aficionados, fantasy enthusiasts and all the rest of us hanging on to dear life." - Jack Archibald
‘The Phone and Other Short Stories’ is a collection of nine short reads that in all, creates a battleground between the likes of Hitchcock and Twain. It’s a compromise of satire and science, of time travel and tall tale, but mostly just good fun. Titles include The Phone, A Man of Proverbs, A Bitter Climb, Stall, Gleason Snickell and the Search for Love, In the Woods Where the Widow Sings, Sweet Tooth, Awkward and The First Ride: The Real Story of Santa Claus.
