Theodore Jerome Cohen’s first serious attempt to write a short story for publication was in 1962 while he was working in Antarctica. The story he penned—about a man killed by a pod of orcas—was lost during his return to the United States. It wasn’t until 2009, when he resurrected the tale and incorporated it in his post-modern novel, Frozen in Time: Murder at the Bottom of the World, that the horror of the episode, which was based on a real encounter by three Chilean Army enlisted men with a pod of orcas, appeared in print. Time did not dim the horror of what happened at sea that day!Now, this story and others—unusual stories about Ted’s life as a violinist, about a woman who seeks the help of a fortune teller to divine the future of her daughter, and about a university professor obsessed with the making of coffee—are vividly brought to life in the eleven short stories found in this book.
