Book Summary: This is a short book of short stories (and one novelette) of mixed genre. The genre range goes from occult/horror, to murder/horror, to near-future/speculative, to something that may (or may not) be speculative. If there is such a thing, the latter may be tongue-in-cheek speculative, or perhaps food-for-thought speculative. Whatever they may be catagorized as, they are intended to be just for fun. The horror stories in this book are not the splatter type of horror that we are so often confronted with today. It is merely the type of horror for the unjaded palate.

Miss Isadora Delafield may be an heiress, but her life is far from carefree. When her mother begins pressuring her to marry an elderly and uncouth duke, she escapes from the high society world she's always known and finds herself to be an unlikely candidate for a housekeeper position in rural Pennsylvania. Mr. Ian MacKenzie is known for his savvy business sense and has built his reputation and fortune completely on his own merits. But when his adopted parents are in need of a new housekeeper and Isadora is thrown into his path, he's unexpectedly charmed by her unconventional manner. Neither Isadora nor Ian expected to find the other so intriguing, but when mysterious incidents on the farm and the truth of Isadora's secret threaten those they love, they'll have to set aside everything they thought they wanted for a chance at happy-ever-after.

Did you know that Barnacle geese were once classified as fish? That both the Cherokees and the ancient Greeks were convinced that cranes regularly fought battles with pygmies? That the Swiss believed that any cuckoo that managed to survive for a year would turn into an eagle? Throughout history, birds have fascinated and intrigued mankind, so it is hardly surprising that an astonishingly rich body of myth, legend and superstition has grown up around them. Flights of Fancy explores the stories told about 30 of the world's best-known species, from the blackbird to the wryneck, drawing on traditions from every quarter of the globe. Some of the stories included clearly arose as a result of faulty observation, such as the widely held belief that nightjars sucked milk from cows. Others stemmed from attempts to explain unusual aspects of appearance or behaviour. But the vast majority seem to have their origins in people's delight in inventing stories - whether the legend that the blackbird was originally white, or the suggestion that witches kept owls as their familiars. And, as Peter Tate points out, what is so extraordinary is that the same story often crops up in many different parts of the world: the belief that eagles and snakes are sworn enemies can be found as far apart as Iraq and Mexico; the view that the raven is the harbinger of bad luck can be found throughout Europe from Denmark to Spain. A fascinating and wonderfully entertaining read, this is the ideal book for anyone interested in birds or myths - or both.

Flights of Fancy is a combination of two novellas; each a large slice of life and written solely for the purposes of entertainment and the reader’s enjoyment. Actually, a rather refreshing twist in this era of innuendo, subtle lessons, and high-tech methodology. No hidden agendas, barely even a hint of violence, and only the slightest suggestion of gratuitous sex. Definitely an uniquely odd formula when compared to recent trends in modern mainstream literature. Relationships are explored. Heart strings are tugged. Funny bones are tickled. And imaginations tweaked. Real world characters facing real world circumstances of personal growth and interaction. The first work, Charitable Contributions, takes a wide-angle snapshot of a suburban neighborhood and introduces the reader to a few of the families who reside there. Each household has its own distinct problems and personal battles to fight, to win, or to lose. An interesting common denominator between the characters provides a highly entertaining and humorous foundation. The second portion, A Slow Boat To Lubbock, leads the reader off the beaten path and along the rural farm roads of a barren stretch of Texas landscape. Eccentric characters and convoluted family trees makes this one a great read and a virtual delight for the imagination. Makes you wonder what really hides behind all those city limit signs belonging to the small towns that are scattered across the nation’s roadmaps like so many fly specks.
