Indianapolis, IN, April 15, 2010 --(PR.com
)-- In this new release of Dog Ear Publishing published short stories, author Bill Stamos takes us on a journey across countries and cultures that begins in 1969 and continues through to the new millennium. Whether travelling through the Middle East as a young man in the 1970’s, mutinying on a sailboat adrift in the Gulf of Alaska, traveling through Mexico to see a solar eclipse with a pal, or falling in love with a lingerie model in an airport in Ecuador, Stamos captures both the humor and the humanity of a sojourner far from home. Stamos has organized these 17 mostly autobiographical adventures into the categories of “Cultural Crossings,” “Spiritual Crossings,” “Political Crossings,” “Extended Crossings” and finally, “Crossings of the Absurd.” These stories, most of which take place against an international backdrop, are all about what imbues any transition or border crossing, whether physical, or metaphorical. Choosing the promise of repeated escape, these are the stories of an improbable ‘Everyman’ lurching up against the imprints of past mistakes, and the unwary limitations of enforced boundaries.
Bill Stamos has a spent a lifetime traveling the globe and now lives mostly in California where he is a community college counselor. Border Crossings’ Tales of Transit and Transgression within the Global Village is his first book.
