It has taken me two years to write and subtracted ten years from my life, but I have finally published my first book, a little book, a chapbook,

From the publisher:

What makes us human? What makes us different? In the tradition of ‘Vladimir Nabokov’s ‘Pale Fire,’ Eric Norris looks at life as a corrupted text, with the greatest meaning lingering just at the margins of error. ‘Terence’ tells the story of a bewildered boxer’s love for a beautiful young man he meets at the gym, complicated by the untimely appearance of a cow.

It is a very strange story. Terence approaches the problems of life and love from a different angle, obtuse at times, acute at others, but hopefully enjoyable for all.

(If you are curious about the cow, click here to read an excerpt.)

As always, thanks for dropping by.

I'll have to get a copy. Love the set-up. Peaks my curiosity element.

Thanks! Terence is kind of an odd story, my first adventure into the short story genre.

My hope is that a few readers find it funny and, maybe, a little touching.

Let me know what you think!

All the best,
