About the Book

Eclectic Fables is a set of short stories derived essentially from the complex experiences of the author. They still remain potent to this day – even if they are not as frequently or explicitly addressed. These themes include racism, interracial dating, gang violence, racial identity, and metaphysics.

The author has not limited himself to one genre but has on occasion interwoven different genres in an attempt to make these provocative tales more entertaining.
