Each story original. Each story different. Author Harry C. Doolittle invites readers to walk the line between Imagination & Reality as he shares an unforgettable compilation of intriguing shorts, published through Xlibris.
Many VIPs in the business, the military, and the government desire to get their thoughts out to the public but at the same time are reluctant to be named. Readers will encounter such a case of an elusive anonymous artist in Written on Condition of Anonymity. When Accahoe Police Chief John Snowgress hears of the case of Radio Music Heard In Grave, he wonders if a dead person is having the time of his life down there, better than the one above it. A B-Movie screenwriter attempts to write an A-Movie script in Al in Wonderland and reveals the winning formulas that make a movie a box office hit. Other stories such as a teenage pilot and more can be found as readers browse through the pages.
Interwoven with humor and satire, Imagination & Reality is an anthology of tales specifically collected and selected by Doolittle. The author makes use of real locations that readers will be able to recognize though the characters and stories are fictional. He employs satire to cleverly present life’s sometimes absurd realities, wrapped in imaginative tales that will either draw out a laugh or provoke thought.
