A Strange and Bewildering People ImageA Strange and Bewildering People
Dan Mulhollen

Michael Lawson, a 21 year old American student/railyard worker is arrested for a crime he did not commit. Fleeing his homeland, he flees to his grandmother's native land, the tiny Communist country of North Moravia, a land with an odd history and equally eccentric inhabitants. Equally drawn and repelled by the curious sensibilities of this land, he slowly acclimates himself to his new home. Meanwhile, tremors from Moscow haunt this strangely happy micro-nation. Communism is crumbling, much like the ailing Leonid Brezhnev. Both Poland and Czechoslovakia desire their halves of North Moravia. Only ancient legends and a mysterious tower deep in the woods hold the keys to the country's survival.

Experimentation, Personal Tendencies, and Controversy ImageExperimentation, Personal Tendencies, and Controversy
Dan Mulhollen

This collection includes "In a Different World," an experiment in second person, a few stories about forgetfulness, "Booth Babes," a business satire some readers took way too seriously, "The Beachcombers," a science fiction tale showing the difficulties another sentient species would have sharing a world with humans, and "A Night With a Witch" a suggestion that while terribly creepy, this supernatural might not be particularly malevolent.

Dan Mulhollen joined the Piker Press in 2006 and this collection represents the works published by them over the next two years. It includes the psychological fantasy story "To The Ultimate Reaches" dating back to the late 1980s; the bittersweet Valentine's Day story, "Rendezvous at Ernie's;" and some off-kilter looks at tradition, isolation, and holidays.

Pilgrimage and Protest ImagePilgrimage and Protest
Dan Mulhollen

From the nostalgic, autumnal "Pilgrimage" to the blatantly non-conformist "Avalon Springs," plus a couple fairy tale homages, a little paranoia, and "A Towel and Me" -- my take on Xenophon's "Anabasis" without Greeks fighting Persians, just one woman fighting exposing herself.
