Story One: "Loser!"
Story Two:"Warrior Babies"
Story Three: "Dream Come True"
Sonny Ambergen sometimes walks, talks and manages his personal affairs like a "loser." But that doesn't make him a bad person. An odd, elderly man he meets while visiting his father at an upscale hospital, downtown, confirms that last point. From that encounter on, Sonny finds himself on a journey of self rediscovery, even while amenities and relations he holds dear fall away, steadily.
Can babies be "warriors," as the title suggests? Or is it a metaphor with intent to pique readers' interest? Here's the deal: A government agent, who is the main character, tells the tale of how his secret assignments led to pursuit of a mysterious and academically ostracized Dutch professor of Earth Science and philosophy. With the intermittent aid of his best bud in the agency, one with important inside knowledge and connections, Emanuel Wolff gets closer and closer to solving a mystery that has intrigued them both. Finally, he gets what might be described as too close for comfort.
"Dream Come True"
A young fellow walks casually along a rural road and comes across an architectural wonder. It's a house built into the side of a great incline of earth. As he moseys downhill, along the side of the home, he notices a garage door opening and sees someone backing out, in a pickup, with head oriented away. At just that instant the young man takes a gamble and sneaks, unnoticed, into the garage, before the home-owner remotely lowers the door. Fascinated with the advent of lucky breaks, the fellow reflects on his good fortune, first, in escaping from the nearby mental hospital and, now, his having gained secret entry into someone's home. When he discovers that a 13 year old girl and her disabled granny are, now, home alone, he considers the situation a dream come true.
