Honeysuckle and Other Stories
A unique collection of short stories that feature the surrealism of dark fantasy in everyday life.
Praise for Honeysuckle and Other Stories
Be prepared for a glimpse back at that time in childhood when something as ordinary as an empty bottle or a flower could possess mystical powers...Taylor's collection of surreal tales and clever observations are as enchanting as they are giggle-worthy.--Warrensburg Free Press - Amy Thiltges
"James Henry Taylor's charmingly told fables lead us through his imagined world of everyday magic, irony, consequence and compassion." -- author, Down on Ponce - Fred Willard
"Only a physicist/writer...could so perfectly relate the magic of everyday reality and the everyday reality of magic. Like the 'smiling scar' left behind on the hand of one of his characters, Taylor's stories leave their other-worldly imprints behind."--author, Golden Carp - Antonio Vallone
