Book review: The Roto-Rooter (The Short Story Collection Series) by Michael Priv

Book review: The Myth of Love by Randy Niederman

The Myth of Love by Randy Niederman is technically a mashup, a book that combines different genres or themes of a disparate nature; nonetheless, it has a thread of consistency which draws the reader through this rather unusual plot-line.
