Monstrosity pipes
A graduate of the Savannah College of Art and Design, Olie Sylvester is a talented pipemaker who has turned his artistic ability not into making pipes that reflect nature’s beauty but rather crafting pipes that, well, just shouldn’t be made.

Known as The Pipe Butcher, Sylvester could be a character right out of gothic novel set in Transylvania. His Monstrosity pipes ought to be bulldozed into a toxic waste dump rather than smoked. It is said that some people have been known to be turned into stone with one glance of these hideous briar beings. Others, hardy enough to overcome their initial vomit-inducing visions of these monsters, report that they display fine smoking qualities and that beauty (or lack thereof) is only skin deep.

Twenty-Six Days
Murder, mystery and mayhem abound in Regis McCafferty’s latest Joshua Pitt novel, Twenty-Six Days. The pipe-smoking enquiry agent and sometime detective Pitt becomes embroiled in a   plot for revenge in Victorian-era England. Pitt has 26 days to foil the vengeance killing and happens to rekindle a relationship that might lead to a new life.

Regis McCafferty is the author of numerous short stories, articles and novels. He currently resides in northern Ohio.

Twenty-six Days may be ordered at Amazon. An e-book is available at iUniverse.com.
