Published by iUniverseBooks
In this distinctive collection of thirty-nine short stories, author David H. Brandin mixes satire and political incorrectness with startling story-line twists in the tradition of O. Henry. Divided into four parts, The Earthquake Prophet combines modern history, fantasy, and current events to deliver a treasure trove of prose. Brandin delves into a variety of subjects that range from earthquake prediction and World War II to the hot political topics of today such as global warming, sanctuary cities, and TSA’s no-fly lists. With wit and his own unique brand of humor, Brandin offers an interesting explanation for the collapse of the American economic system; deftly describes the inanity of professional politicians; exposes corruption in the judicial system; and skewers high-stakes issues in national security. Stories also explore how the ordinary can turn extraordinary. Scuba diving takes a strange turn, a piano lesson lapses into terror, and an unusual Texas slot machine creates quite the controversy. Blending political, historical, and general fiction with tales of science fiction and fantasy, The Earthquake Prophet promises a fascinating literary adventure.
