“Sparky” Lagala had become accustomed to a mediocre high-school existence spent
dreaming of things he could never have—the girl, the car and the respect.
That is until the day he’s hired as the roadside mascot for Tino’s Pizza in Portland, Oregon and discovers that his mysterious employer is in fact a major player in a large foodie-based crime syndicate.
It isn’t long before Sparky finds himself taken in by a constellation of unique and ruthless characters who will make his teenage dreams a reality… a reality that comes with a price.
Stinky’s church needs to cut expenses and they enlist Stinky and other members of the parish as speakers for an endowed lecture series instead of flying people in from distant shores. Many at St. Stephen’s are “locovores” and prefer locally grown produce, but the decision to become “locobores” and listen to local, boring speakers satisfies the letter, but not the spirit of the bequest. Plucky Stinky manages to salvage the ensuing disaster, but you’ll have to read on to discover the delights and dangers of inter-species sonics.
About Stinky Stories
Stinky and Eddie appear in over seventy comic short stories in the #1 bestselling Amazon series. Stinky is chatty and insouciant, and while Eddie may not say as much, when something needs to be done, he’s already doing it. They’re as close as Brooklyn and Queens and as unlikely to separate.
Stinky doesn’t go looking for trouble, but he can’t hide from it. It’s part of the “best looking man on the planet” package. His life is complicated, and sometimes even church can be a strain. He might help his rector try to understand his porn star nephew, assist with the annual Easter egg hunt or break bread with a toxic visiting organist. Stinky and Eddie like to live quietly, but lucky for us that never happens.
Stinky and Eddie are supported by a collection of outrageous guest stars and an ever expanding cast of relatives. The stories are witty and literate and readers don’t have to leave their brains in a jar to enjoy them. Whether it’s a flat-out farce, bedroom comedy, sexy romp, sly satire or screwball family intrigue, you’re never far from a happy ending in every Stinky story. Isn’t that what we really need these days?
Each story is an independent tale, but there is some overlap between them. If you’re curious about Stinky and Eddie’s other humorous adventures, go to www.stinkyandeddie.com for quotes of the week, frequently asked questions, publication information and news of our boys’ dealings.

Then, one of ComsMesh staff finds the 2015 diary of a James Urquhart, and the 1873 diary of Elizabeth Bicester bound together in a copper chest and concludes they are actually time travellers. He flags this up to his director as he believes such technology in the wrong hands could reveal his Company’s plans to socially engineer the world.
So here are the diaries of the adventures of James Urquhart, minor science lecturer and sometime rambler, living in 2015 and Elizabeth Bicester, lady of leisure, of Hamgreen Lodge whom he stumbles upon at a cricket match in 1873. Despite much banter regarding each other’s etiquette and manners it seems they manage (through incredible feats of illogical deduction, with not a little help from James Maxwell, H. G. Wells and some strange time devices) to save the world.
