Shadowboxing

A short story collection conceived out of a life-long intuition: know FEAR, with all of its versions and manifestations, and one will know MAN. The collection is a dissertation of fears. It is ten years of accumulated story telling, in itself, a postulation that reflects the many changes in the life of a writer.

Section One is the process that one particular man undertook to get to authenticity; an inner-dialogue about existence, dying, and love, only to find himself at the end, alone and facing his own image in a bathroom mirror.
Section Two is a compilation of short stories about the daily-ness of fears and the many ways in which they creep into our lives, deciding and acting for us.
Section Three is an adventure story, a change of pace, an imagined and new beginning for mankind. Or perhaps, not!
