The Acorn Stories by Duane Simolke. Book coverA newlywed struggles with mental health and job insecurity, but finds joy in her artwork and marriage.

A teacher faces bigotry in the small town he grew to love.

Swimming laps in a pool makes a young man reflect on his odd encounters.

Faustian legend receives a satirical update.

Those situations just hint at what readers can find in Duane Simolke’s collection of West Texas tales, set at the end of the end of the twentieth century.

Amazing and hard to put down.

–Kimmie Sue’s Book Review and More

Each of Simolke’s stories lets us look into the lives of some of the most interesting characters I have ever read about.
