Curious Men: He-time Tales (Me-Time/He-time Book 2) by Rosalind Minett

Something different! The companion volume to Me-Time Tales: tea breaks for mature women and curious men. “Entering Rosalind Minett’s fictional world is like taking a journey with an old and trusted friend. There’s an abundance of wit and a quiet lyricism in her writing which reveals itself in the clarity of her language. The right word in the right place seems never more appropriate. Minett’s fictional world mirrors reality but in a daring manner, mainly because she casts light on the quirks and foibles of what it is to be human, revealing hidden fantasies and desires.  From the man whose passion is for probing the intimate parts of machines which suck and cut, to the secretive Sunday bonfire king right through to a character’s determination to discover the meaning of life before chairs. Minett’s accurate eye is like a searchlight, seeking out the darker shadings.” – Eileen Casey (Multi-award winning Irish author)The curious men now have their say…or at least they try to, between invasive female comments. A collection of unusual short stories, sober, bizarre or cunningly funny, featuring men of different ages and stages and eras. Each story reveals a differently curious man. Who doesn’t have curious habits, weaknesses, features, beliefs—even feelings? Men tend to keep these to themselves, or not to be aware of them. These stories delve into their secrets. One or two are bleak. More are blissfully weird.The first man is passionate about the inanimate. The next takes his curiosity to the farthest geographic extremes. Brian can’t choke out essential news everyone is hanging on for. Sidney wends his desolate way towards a secret retribution.If Hugh had kept his parts secret he might appeal more to women. The therapist has a serial secret-keeper on his hands. These are some of the stories you’ll read in Curious Men but then the stories are invaded by the mature women! Men know how this feels.

Falling Man by William H. Duryea

An agonizing reflection on a society of shared post-traumatic stress. (No, that’s not it.) A highly personal chronicle of learned helplessness and depression. (Not quite.)A series of agnostic parables, morals not included. (Don’t get cute with me.) Another childish white male temper tantrum. (There, you got it)Falling Man is a collection of 34 pieces of short prose and poetry about mental illness, suicide, and the incoherent nightmare of early 21st Century life. The works included touch on moments of recent historical trauma ranging from the Charleston church massacre (“Storm Roof”) to 9/11 (“Falling Man”) to the Trump presidency (“The White House at Night”) as well as the smaller pains and humiliations of daily life. Or, in other words: more sad garbage from an entitled millennial. Enjoy.

The French Love Pastry and Her Tale in the Sand: A Dip into the Byblos Foretold Novaplex by M.E. Meegs

Once upon a time, on the north coast of France, a callipygian chambermaid set her sights on a rich American with a fetish. It’s the spring of 1903, and the coy Nicole—intoxicated by a combination of youthful infatuation and ageless avarice—puts all her most promising parts to work. But it’s not by her comely tail she’ll win this learned lad’s heart, for his obsession runs deeper—or, at least, further down….

Reminiscent of the tales comprising The Decameron, this singular story recounts yet another skirmish in the age-old battle of the sexes, and then betters Boccaccio by adding a pair of instructive morals, à la: If you lead him by the nose, be sure to check the porridge for parts.
