Twisted Tales from the Northwest
Twisted Tales From The Northwest contains most of the stories I wrote while living in the Northwest. I’ll plead guilty to making these tales dark and gloomy like the skies that covered the Earth most of the time. Our house was nestled in the foothills of the Cascade Mountains and Mt. Si blocked our view of the rising sun. Evening comes early in that portion of the northwest. One year I swear I did not see the sun for nine months.
Many of the communities were still the old time logger towns built around the huge logging companies that once supplied the nation with wood. One of those companies was still going strong, but their towns and housing were by then privately owned.
These tales can be your own visit to the Northwest where you will meet the people who live, work, and exist there. Along the way you'll find humor as Good Sam tries to return a time traveler to his wife. There is a murder mystery, plus a depressing sea town ruled by an ancient deity, dark elves that came with the Swedish immigrants, a vampire that likes the dark skies, and take a brief visit to the future where other beings inhabit our Earth.
Some of the people will struggle to survive, others live only to help the other person, and one couple tries to remodel an old, neglected house. But they should be careful... for the unknown dwells there.
