Erik D Weiss

Author Erik D Weissabout this book: I’m an independent fiction writer and military historian, presenting my first compelling collection of short stories. I’m a devotee of literature, history, art, and music, and feel that I have merged these interests into this varied collection.

The cornerstone work, The Prisoner of Chillon, is a fictionalized rendering of Byron’s famous prisoner. The Factory is a totalitarian allegory which takes us within the walls of autocratic fanaticism. As a figuration of Dante’s Divine Comedy, Baseball provides a nuanced view of the game as a figuration of circular knowledge and the journey of life. Heist at Scone Palace is a daring robbery caper set within a castle among the Scottish highlands. In a further tribute to Dante’s Comedy, A Light in the Dark Wood takes us on a futuristic advancement of Dante’s journey to the realm of scientific discovery. The collection closes with a fanciful and humoristic satire in an old English club, The Egg.

I hope that these “scattered” short stories will provoke a wide variety of thoughts and moods and passions in my readers. This collection will appeal to a varied audience of all ages.
