Stories to live by Reviews Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy and Other Stories

I was pleased to learn that the Stories to live by blog on wordpress has reviewed my short story collection, Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy & Other Stories. Here’s a bit of it:

“Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy and other stories by Frank Mundo is a collection of short stories that give insight to various stages in the life of a man named J.T. Glass. J.T. is a security guard with a sharp tongue, wild imagination, a wicked and sometimes dark sense of humor and has an interesting way of looking at life…

There are twelve parts to this book (one is of bonus material) and each one tells us a different story…”

Please visit storiestoliveby and check it out if you have a minute. Like it, share it, comment on it. I appreciate your support.

Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy and Other Stories is available in paperback at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, for kindle and the Nook, Kobo, iTunes and Smashwords. If you like short stories in the general fiction genre, check it out. Or read some of the reviews on Amazon or Goodreads. It has nothing to do with fairies. I promise — not that there’s anything wrong with that. The title is simply an unfortunate nickname given to one of the characters by bullies when he was in high school.

“Different”is the Reprise Review at Big Al’s Books and Pals Today

Very cool. Big Al’s Books and Pals had made my book “Different” its Reprise Review of the day. Check it out.
Different tells the story of Gregory Gourde, who wakes up in his bed one morning with an impossible new feature. We follow Gregory down a rabbit hole of sorts to a new world and an audacious exploration of what it really means to be different in this dark yet humorous nod to Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” and Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”.

Different by Frank Mundo is FREE this Weekend

You read it right. My book Different is free this Saturday through Monday, March 25-27 on Kindle. Check it out.

If you choose to read it, please share your review on GR and Amazon. Love it or hate it, I appreciate your time and your opinion.

Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Different-Frank-Mundo-ebook/dp/B00H7GAJTM

Different is an illustrated novella for adults. It’s in the Urban Fantasy or Contemporary Fantasy genres. There are six reviews on GR, and four on Amazon: https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/19454182-different

Summary: If you like those “peculiar” children Tim Burton is about to make famous, you might like Different.

One morning 12-year-old Gregory Gourde wakes up in his bed with an impossible new feature: his head has become a watermelon. We follow Gregory down a rabbit hole of sorts to a new world and an audacious exploration of what it really means to be different in this dark yet humorous nod to Kafka’s “Metamorphosis” and Carroll’s “Alice in Wonderland”.

The illustrations in Different are woodcut-style black-and-white drawings (after the famous Alice in Wonderland art) by Keith Draws, who also illustrated my other book, The Brubury Tales (Illustrated Edition) and the cover of my short-story collection, Gary, the Four-Eyed Fairy (who, incidentally, makes an appearance in Different).

*Adult language and content. Not for children under 13 or 14.

I hope you enjoy Different.

Classical Carousel Reviews The Brubury Tales

I am honored and so grateful for the amazing reviews and responses to my book The Brubury Tales that continue to come in.

Just today, an in-depth book review of The Brubury Tales was posted at Classical Carousel, an exceptional literary blog that reviews classic books by dead authors almost exclusively. But, because the site was already taking on  Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, The Brubury Tales (my homage to Chaucer’s amazing work) was chosen to be included in a side-by-side reading challenge of old and new! That decision alone was a huge honor and an awesome reminder to me of how lucky I am to keep finding an audience for such an unusual book — based on a work that means so very much to me.

You can read the full review of The Brubury Tales here.

And please be sure to check out the full reviews of The Canterbury Tales as well, and all the many Classical Carousel reviews of some of the best books by some of the best dead writers ever.

The Brubury Tales is available in paperback and ebook formats at Amazon.


The Brubury Tales is an ambitious homage to Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales. It takes Chaucer’s story and frame to Los Angeles just after the riots, where seven security guards on the graveyard shift swap tales in a hilarious storytelling competition for Christmas vacation time.
