The Bat

by Leslie Garland

The Bat; a coming of age story and a search after truth.

What is true? What is truth?

An old and now sceptical Thomas looks back on the events of his last term at school when his class returned to a new beautiful class teacher, a donation of stuffed animals and birds by an eccentric benefactor and the increasingly strange events which followed. Zoological specimens appeared to be not quite as dead as they looked. A bell-jar which had contained a stuffed bat shattered during an exorcism.

Coffee, Cigarettes, Death & Mania

by Rodney Richards

Rodney recounts firsthand experiences and unbelievable scenarios while out of his rational mind and completely absorbed within the clutches of mania. The delusions, scenes, hallucinations, and exploits are real and as frighteningly extreme as they are sometimes dangerous. At one time he believes he is King of the World, at another the return of Jesus Christ and all the Prophets. On a plane flying 30,000 feet over the Atlantic he almost succeeds in opening the door. In a staid midnight British dinner party he strolls naked among the guests pooh-poohing their laughter. With only thirty dollars cash and a credit card he flies from Newark airport to London, to Rome, then to Tel Aviv, all the while on a mission that will revolutionize the world.
