I'm a child of the 1970s. I entered junior high school (a moniker I prefer over "middle school") in 1970 and graduated from high school in 1976. Even though very little of that type-written novel contains allusive material to things I did (or things done to me) during those years, I have to say that the novel is about living in the 1970s.
As I slathered away the hours last winter and spring writing Lycentia: Harrak's Scrolls, I took a few "breathers" from The Land of Betrovia universe to digitize a few chapters from that novel. The final results are the following short stories that I have decided to categorize as parts of the "Life in Beatty" series.
So what is so "important" about the 1970s?
Everything! That's what!
Here's the newest story: The Bird Lady
Another story that is now available as an audio book is That Hoosier's Cap
Another one is A Game of H.O.R.S.E.
And here's Pizza Surprise
Whoa! And another round-ball adventure!: Treading Ice Water
The plan is to kick out 5-6 more Life in Beatty stories ... and maybe something a bit longer will appear someday as well!
