Southern SF humor in Cowchip Alabama. Monstrous garden hose monster gobbles up every living thing in town and the whole world if it isn’t stopped!
.


Set in good old 1955 in the strange little town of Cowchip Alabama a monster beyond all reason rears its ugly head from a local garden hose to devour all life. If it isn’t stopped by our heroes in Cowchip Alabama it will consume the world! This book reads like a good old fashioned monster movie. It has a hero, a general, colonel, an old scientist and his beautiful young assistant (who is a girl) and monster chomping action galore. It is stuffed to suffocation with every wonderful 1950′s monster thing you can imagine. The only thing it lacks is the eerie music and I’m working on that for you! It’s rated PG, if that. It’s so good you will want to read it aloud. And best of all it’s based on a real, well documented incident. Several in fact!

Southern Crime Mystery – Outrageous and humorous..
Clang!
A most satisfying, if short ringing sound, unlike bells but every bit as rousing.
.
 It was the sound of cast iron whacking a melon, only it was a large frying pan and it wasn’t a melon at all.Old man Poppin who lives in an old house sitting on top of Poppin Hill has to contend with many tribulations. First, a boarder he doesn’t want and then the meddlings of his irascible landlord, Theophilius Bump.Poppin sets about to solve one problem via frying pan, only to create another. Along the way you’ll meet a fine cast of damaged Cowchip characters, who mean no harm, only doing the best they can with what they have to work with.Hailed as the best southern crime mystery since Huck Finn, and set near Cowchip/AL, you’ll find yourself swearing off bacon for a day or two after you read this delightful mystery tale in the Cowchip/AL series! Mystery hounds flock to it like crispy bacon to lightly scrambled eggs.

All Aboard! The Funny Bone Train To Cowchip Alabama Is Now Departing. All Aboard! Get set for a laugh out loud southern humor reading experience.

The currency of the Internet is a thing known as articles. There are millions, billions of articles on every conceivable subject. Indeed, the initial reason to have an Internet was to have a place to swap information. But now, there is a new thing… The Kindle Book!

Facebook-Index-Page2

The feeling of the editor of FableShop.net is that the first mission of the world wide web has been fulfilled with the flowering of fact media.

If you recall your early school years, you were tasked with writing articles for teacher. But how often did you go to the library to pick up a good article for entertaining reading? If you were or are a writer, how often did you sit down, keyboard in hand, and say to yourself, “I think I shall write a fine article to answer the age old question, ‘what if?”

In our modern world, it is quite possible to literally write non-fiction by machine. Somewhere, sometime, one wizened little old person wrote the original piece, and from that springs millions of slightly changed copies, spewed forth by inhuman algorithms. Articles by machine happen all the time. It even has a name. It’s called ‘spinning’.

Fiction, on the other hand, is much harder to spin successfully. A good short story or novel that passes the various search engine tests for authenticity will invariably be authentic.

It is to that end that I offer a new form of Internet presentation, and that is short stories with just a touch of Internet marketing mixed in to pay for the project.

The customary way to do business on the net is to write an article about a subject to draw in the reader, and then to try and sell him something.

The unique mission of FableShop.net is to present a short story with just a dab of advertising thrown in. In other words, we want you to purchase a Kindle copy of the book!

In the end, there is no reason one can not be entertained while being marketed!

Featured short stories delivered under the genre of Mystery, Science Fiction, The Cowchip/AL Series, and The Choccolocco Valley Series will be found here.

There are two distinct paths offered: The Cowchip/AL Series, and Choccolocco Valley Series. Each path offers completely different worlds of excitement.

We hope you enjoy your exciting excursion into the strange worlds of Cowchip and the Choccoloco Valley. FableShop.net is the modern shop of great fables!
