For those who love Short Stories

This collection, Odd Voices in Love, includes the short works of prize-winning author Charles W. Harvey. The title bears witness to love in lust and in trouble. Unlike romance novels and stories, these epistles paint a candid picture of love and the yearning for love. You will note that unrequited or a one-sided love weaves a subtle thread through all of these stories. Sometimes the object of the gushing affection barely acknowledges the bearer of the gift of love. The minister in Minister Q sees Sister Gloria as someone who merely vacuums the Mosque’s carpets. Cheeseburger, a young gang member in the story Cheeseburger, is unaware of Della and the life she's created for him in her head. She loves him, and he unwittingly breaks her heart.

Love is troubling. Blues singers and poets have sung and mourned of "no-good women" and men long gone. Some love on the “down-low” as Avery and "Skate" do in My Manhood is Very Important to Me. Love is queer, violent, and murderous even, as serial killer Moses hoards his victim's underwear, in a twisted effort to hold onto the essence of the men he meets and murders--It Began With Drawers. However, love is never dull. Affection expressed is often very explicit. Peep into Sister Gloria's bedroom as she and Robert X make love. You've probably never considered a mouthful of crushed ice as a way to make your man happy.
Most of these stories have appeared in anthologies and even literary magazines--When Dogs Bark, Cheeseburger, and It Began With Drawers to name a few. We apologize in advance for the lack of Knights on white horses and damsels in distress. However, then again, anyone in love is in distress.

In the end, I hope you've had a great reading experience and that you're moved to leave a review.

Be forewarned the language is strong, sensual, and sometimes erotic.
