The Red Carpet
A Collection of Short Stories
About the Book
Once upon a time… the starting point of many a short story.
Now read a collection of tales, inspired by the accumulation of a lifetime's event of one traveler. This collage of fictional tales is often based on true events, that the writer invites you to guess which have an element of truth, and which are fictional. He covers the realm; from boyhood dreams, to a young man's nightmares, to old men's terrors. His tales cover the four corners of the world, to interest every reader.
This assembly of 28 short stories begin with a love story symbolized by the Turkish dowry carpet, move on to a quirky Irish friar, a Spanish bull-fighter, knights of old, soul travel experiences, resistance fighters of Viet Nam, Chinese Moon cakes Festival , pubs of Scotland, and everything in between.
Yes, let the tales unfold!
