Author Bob Avis takes readers to new worlds conjured from his thoughts in his new book, a collection of “Short Stories” (published by Xlibris) delving into the genres of general fiction and science fiction.

With his book of original “Short Stories,” Avis blends the mundane and the marvelous, fact and fiction and the ordinary and the outrageous. Characters face unusual situations that are often amusing and at the same time emotionally intense. Avis even takes his readers to visit the worlds of distant stars, to search for intelligent life beyond Earth. The reading experience will keep readers at the edge of their seats.

“Short Stories” is replete with wonders brought to life by Avis’ imagination, and now readers can partake in these tales, exploring the final frontier through the vehicle of storytelling.
