THE ORACLE has been Released

Filed under: The Oracle — Frank Fiore @ 11:31 AM

My new book of short stories – THE ORACLE – has been released and garnering 5 star reviews on Amazon – and selling briskly to boot.

The ORACLE consists of a series of short stories tied together by means of a background story – a story within a story (similar to Ray Bradbury’s “Illustrated Man”). And like the Jeffrey Archer and Twilight Zone stories, the Oracle short stories are written with surprise endings.

First, a special deal.

If you write a review for THE ORACLE and post it to Amazon, let me know and I will send you t he complete box set of the Chronicles of Jeremy Nash for FREE.

OR….

If you write a review on any of the Chronicles – A Taste of the Apocalypse, SEED or Black SUN or the boxed set – I will send you a FREE copy of THE ORACLE.

A little bit about THE ORACLE.

The background story begins with a young musician on his way to Phoenix from Los Angles for a concert. He is given a car by his manager and shortly after entering Arizona it breaks down. Out in the middle of nowhere he decides to hitch a ride to the nearest town for help. While waiting for a ride, the weather turns inclement and he seeks refuge at a ranch house inhabited by an old and lonely couple. They invite him in and persuade him to stay for dinner.

After eating, they retire to the living room. After a while, the old woman offers to show their guest some of their three dimensional slides on their old-time stereoscope.

Being polite, the young man decides to endure the request. His hosts carefully remove a set of slides from a shiny metallic box from under the coffee table and place the first one in the stereoscope’s viewer. They instruct the young man to hold the stereoscope up to the living room lamp and focus it towards the viewer. When the viewer is focused and the light hits the slide, something amazing happens.

The still 3D image begins to move!

The first image he sees tells a tale that happens to be one of the short stories in the series. At the end of the first story, the young man turns to question his hosts on this wonderfully strange device. The couple just smile and offer him another slide. He asks again what the device is and where did it come from. The couple respond that the device is an ordinary stereoscope of the early 1900s that they purchased from a Sears catalog many years ago.

But the slides – ah yes, the slides. That’s another matter indeed.

You can buy THE ORACLE on Amazon for the Kindle or Barnes and Nobel for the Nook.
