Odd and Odder: A Collection of Sensuality, Satire and Suspense
by K. S. Brooks
"Odd and Odder: A Collection of Sensuality, Suspense & Satire" brings together the creative, off-beat minds of published authors K. S. Brooks and Newton Love. From short stories befitting The Twilight Zone, to lustful verses of poetry, to thought-provoking flash prose: "Odd and Odder" is consistently fresh, sometimes outlandish, and truly entertaining.
“Odd and Odder” includes:
“You Are Water:” A prosaic exploration of a man's thoughts on a former lover who is still in his life.
“Innocent Bystander:” A flash fiction about surviving a televised tragedy.
“Dark Alley:” A short story about a semi-delusional detective―both charming and repulsive at the same time―who is hired to find a stolen car with a missing husband in it, but instead discovers that there are skeletons in the family closet in compromising positions.
“Paging Doctor Scully:” A romantic ode to a red-headed doctor from a janitor.
“The Masseur:” A spicy poem from a woman who lusts after her physical therapist.
“Sandemann Beach:” A short story homage to Rod Serling, and his Twilight Zone, where an unbeaten lawyer meets his match.
“Paltry Poultry:” A poem about a woman who is always running her mouth in negative ways.
“Mary on My Mind:” A poem of what could have been, as realized one languid afternoon, after the fact.
A total of 22 original works and two bonus excerpts from the authors’ novels are included, providing “something for everyone” as a reader wrote in a five-star online review.
