Fact Check and More Probing Tales
Fact Check and More Probing Tales is the third anthology of previously-published short stories by award-winning James Hanna. Stories range from an air-headed farm boy who is adopted by a beautiful bird that squawks "Fact check" whenever the boy gets into an untenable situation ("Fact Check"). Another is about a struggling writer who pens a maudlin book to mock his critics, but the joke turns septic when the book becomes a bestseller ("The Land Fish"). These are among twenty-two aberrant stories penned by James Hanna. This author is known to penetrate the human comedy while offering pathos, irony and hard laughter.
