Sid Kelly offers readers diverse storytelling as this year marks the release of his new short story collection “GOOD OLD UNCLE SAM AND OTHER SHORT STORIES” (published by Trafford Publishing). To know more about the book, visit https://www.amazon.com/Good-Uncle-Other-Short-Stories/dp/1490795529.

Written over a period of two years, Kelly had no intention of publishing a book until his fellow writers from his writing group encouraged him to do so. The short stories in the collection range from an African American special forces, secret agent, a weird mother, milk boy, a grandmother’s eyeball and more.

Below is an excerpt from one of the short stories “Good Old Uncle Sam:”
A noose was encircled around her neck. They’re going to lynch my mother, Terry wailed out. Those fucking son of bitches. This is the sort of thing the Nazis did, but then there was a war going on. Then he realized it was 1946, and there was still a war going in the USA. It was a war between bigoted whites and those trying to improve the human rights of blacks.

“GOOD OLD UNCLE SAM AND OTHER SHORT STORIES” is a mixture of entertainment and suspense with substantial subjects told in each piece. Some stories touch on subjects discussed in the public discourse like equal rights, discrimination and abuse of women. Kelly aims to provide a page-turner that will make each reader crave for more storytelling.
