Stranded is a new anthology that just came out from Wayward Ink Publishing. Here’s the book blurb:
• (of a boat, sailor, or sea creature) left aground on a shore.
“a stranded whale”
• left without the means to move from somewhere.
“he offers a lift to a stranded commuter”
The boys in this collection of short stories have most definitely been left STRANDED!
They’ve been shipwrecked and abandoned.
Marooned and cast away.
And left helpless and high and dry.
But you should never underestimate the tenacity of the human heart…
My story is called “Standby,” and poor Tom is stranded in an airport when he misses his connection. I travel frequently, so I’ve been in his shoes. But here’s a photo from a happier trip I took last year:
I was the only passenger on this flight. It was a small plane and a short flight, but I was the sole passenger. It was so fun! The flight attendant and I had a great chat. She still had to do the safety stuff over the PA system–FAA regulations–and this time I had to listen.
I’m flying tomorrow. Let’s hope for no mishaps–or at least good outcomes if mishaps occur!
