Small Folk Rhymes by Christine Larsen

An original collection of poems and short stories for wee small folk – to capture and enhance their own wondrously fertile imaginations. The chosen clipart pictures add their own brand of quirkiness. Is there a talented reader out there for each of those smalls who have maybe not yet begun their path to becoming a book lover, able to read to themselves? Please? To you, the ‘out loud’ reader, Christine says – please share the honour with me of being part of creating another special bookworm. I believe the people of our world can never have too many dreams – to soften its harsher realities, to bring more light and love into our lives – and you’re never too young to start dreaming . . . or too old to stop.

Simmons from Accounting: the Time Traveler by B. Radom

Simmons from Accounting is the joke of the office. Whether it be his boss, Deloris Clayton, the new guy, Booker Wells, or even Booker’s assistant, Jimmy Taylor, this bizarre, arrogant man commands no respect. But Simmons is something much more than he seems. Deloris knows this, and it won’t be long before Booker learns it, too. Simmons is a hero, a master of the timescape, and he travels from place to place, and time to time at will, with no one being the wiser.

Scattered throughout the timescape are the micro-cam prophets. These individuals use microscopic cameras to study the futures of anyone, anywhere, from any time. Simmons has received predictions and warnings from a total of 15 of these prophets, and the wizard Abberule — who doesn’t realize that his powers come from the same technology that Simmons uses — has vowed to put a stop to this incredible power. Simmons, Deloris, and Booker team up to follow Abberule to 15 distinct locations in time and space to prevent his efforts to assassinate the micro-cam prophets.

There is also the shadow of Simmons’ greatest enemy, the other side… Continue reading
