Stinky by Birth or Marriage, Volume 6

By Peter Grant

Comedy & satire, Short stories | eBook


Part of the burden of being the best looking man on the planet is that Stinky attracts more than his share of extreme characters. In the first story in this new collection a blond with a loose past and a tight dress starts him dreaming he’s a hard-boiled detective. He needs to put on his thinking cap before he can solve the caper—in this case a fedora suitable to his noir fantasies. In another tale a Distinguished Professor gets Stinky’s goat—literally—when an out-of-control caprid butts the head of the altar guild across the parish hall during a lecture. Eddie may not be able to save the refreshments, but he does restore order while the building is still standing. Stinky doesn’t need outsiders to disturb his equanimity, he has relatives. A relaxing spa weekend turns out to be anything but relaxing when Stinky’s mother brings her new guru to the shore. When Alicia asks the guru to leave, Eddie discovers that the FBI would like her to stay, long term. Stinky has to be sharp as a tack to detain her until the feds arrive. Eddie’s mother throws the spanner when Eddie dreams he’s an Irish-Arabian prince trying to command two competitive genies. Stinkybad, the Jinni of the Skunk doesn’t take orders any better than Stinky, and Eddie’s mother trusts genies as far as she can kick the odor that comes from a skunk’s back end. Is she right? Will Eddie be the only one who doesn’t get his wish granted? The final tale brings all of the relatives under one roof and the roof isn’t large enough. Nature calls, but it does so when people are asleep, and tempers flare when a beloved by day relative wanders into the wrong bedroom at night. By birth or marriage, it's Stinky at his best.
