READ THE BOOK. SHARE THE FAITH. PASS THE SELTZER.Nominated for the 2005 James Thurber Prize for American Humor"...Dale Andrew White is a natural born storyteller with an especial flair for blending fantasy, whimsy, satire, and a fevered imagination into original stories that are replete with ribald humor and reader-engaging novelty. Subtitled made-to-fit tales for the maladjusted, this collection of short stories showcase a genuine and offbeat talent... Highly recommended reading!" - Midwest Book Review"Dale Andrew White is a devious writer and his new collection, Moe Howard Died For Our Sins, provides incriminating evidence of this. On the one hand, the flavor his tales faintly evokes the decayed ante-bellum style of Southern literature that is both lyrically humorous and self-deprecating: the sort of thing we get in Faulkners Sartoris or Mark Twains Huckleberry Finn. ... On the other hand, this is not the satire of Ambrose Bierce or H.L. Mencken. It is more like the kind of in-your-face semantic slapstick that you might expect of a George Carlin or Lenny Bruce... To open this collection is to invite trouble - and probably enjoy it. ... Excellent!". - Rod Clark, editor of Rosebud Magazine, on BookReview.comWith humor as twisted as its stories plots, Moe Howard Died For Our Sins takes readers on a rollicking, hilarious ride. Go to Hell - and see it as a tourist. Get lured into a pie-throwing cult. Peek backstage at the Second Coming. Encounter talking pigs, a tongue-twisting poet, levitating patients, militant tots and a song-and-dance act thats its own show-stopper. The misadventures just keep coming. Part fantasy, part satire, this collection of short fiction is totally bent.Stories include: "The Dirtiest Words in the World," "The Souths Greatest Writer," "Lunacy Grounded," "Life of the Party," "Feed the Lawyers," "Mrs. Reinsman Rides Again," "Moe Howard Died For Our Sins" and 12 more "made-to-fit tales for the maladjusted" -- all snatched from the pages of Modern Short Stories, Comic Relief, Beyond Science Fiction & Fantasy, Nuthouse and other magazines.
