"Zebulon and Other Short Stories" is a collection of stories ranging from science fiction to ghosts to the very devil himself. One depicts a small town where an unusual arcade game allows a strange little man to claim to be transforming into a god. In another a teenaged genius makes a fantastic dimensional discovery opening the possibility of time travel, and the creation of universes. A final dance takes place in another for a devoted couple who love the sound of big band music. The drowning of an innocent young man brings about forgiveness and closure for two special people in yet another. Some tales are touching and mysterious with a bit of paranormal in the mix, while other accounts dig in with a bit of fire and brimstone. These stories touch on the unusual, too.

"Zebulon and Other Short Stories" by Ronald L. Herron is an interesting assortment of tales with all the right elements necessary to make a short-story click. The pages flow easily as we meet some interesting characters and the dilemmas they face. The writer has a good grip of the human existence and the ability to weave it together with a bit of havoc and heart. These stories are creative and fun. It truly is a diverse collection from all walks of life. I especially liked the wager with the devil and the surprising outcome. Herron is a highly imaginative author with a great sense of wit and style. I look forward to reading more by this inventive author.
