Released April 2022

Static:

  A woman alone on a eerily quiet night.  Her only sources of contact with the outside world are her phone and radio...both filled with static.  She waits for dawn.

 

 

Mr Harold P Morton Finkle:

  A broken down car on a country road leads to a meeting with the nearest town's most revered citizen; Mr. Harold P Morton Finkle.

 

 

Hallowe'en Apples:

  A teacher tells her students a Hallowe'en story they won't soon forget.

  Three misfits in a small town have something in common, but they don't know it yet.

 

 

Dearest William:

  A monster tale told in un-posted letters.

 

 

Barnabas Moon:

  A baby is left on a doorstep and changes an entire town.

 

Plus a few more surprises.

Reviews from amazon customers:

 

"This book grabs your attention in the very first paragraph. Read it in 1-1/2 sittings......couldn't put it down!"

 

"Get set to enter a Twilight Zone where ordinary people - you identify with - take you into a totally unpredictable realm of ‘What to hell just happened?’ Then it will compel you into the next short story to see what could possibly be next! Well done Larry Baird - you kept the pages turning!"

 

"I am a fan of Larry's work and this book does not disappoint. The stories are wonderfully eerie and nostalgic. One of them actually made me cry...and another would make a wonderful Disney Pixar film...the others are fun and creepy strangeness. Larry has a talent for creating an entire character in one sentence, I swear I have met some of these people. Loved it.

The Bernice Papers

"I completely loved this book..."

She had one leg, an accordion
and a dream

 

Review from Mercedez, the co-star of the long running stage show CARLY'S ANGELS.

"...It was all about a mega star named Bernice. A charming story of hope that leaves you feeling warm inside with a tear in your eye. The author may have a twisted sense of reality tho."  

 

Reviews from amazon customers:

 "I completely loved this book.  The stories about Bernice were enthralling and imaginative.  Even knowing that it was a fictional book it seemed so realistic and the fact that the author had drawn in historical points or historical figures drew me into the book even more and I never wanted to put it down.  I definitely would recommend this to my friends and family." 

 

"A fun story, or rather stories about a remarkable woman.  Even though the tales are farfetched they are surprisingly believable.  Some parts had me laughing out loud."

Bernice & Hilda: 
The Schmermonger Papers



"I just love this author's work!"

Royals and gangsters and spies, oh my!
This ain't no yellow brick road!

 

Reviews from amazon customers:

"If history class was this fun I would've paid a lot more attention.  The story seamlessly blends history with the fictional exploits of Bernice and Hilda and is a perfect follow up to the Bernice Papers.  Quite interesting lives these ladies had.  So far fetched and yet so believable.  Loved it!!"

 

"I just love this author's work!  Such a different out look on the lives of Hilda and Bernice, lived in the same time set.  I can't wait to see what the author comes up with next."

Bivvy

"...a wonderful ride of fantasy..."

A story of friendship, family, mystery,
colour and faith



Reviews from amazon customers:

" A fun ride and a beautiful story of friendship.  My imagination soared in this book and I could really picture the events..."

 

"I couldn't put this book down, I was disappointed when it ended! I really loved reading Bivvy it was a great read about friendship and the use of imagination..."


 "This is such an unusual and unique story! It challenges your beliefs of what is 'normal' in life and friendship, and takes you on a wonderful ride of fantasy and pure pleasure of character depths.  You'll get caught up in the story and will be driven to know what the culmination of the events will be.  Read!  Enjoy!"

 

" It is fantastic...I thought it is perfect for all ages..."

oddities

 

Is this a U.F.O. appearing in the Drumheller Valley???
I took these pictures in the summer of 2019 and did not notice the aurora until I reviewed the photos at home the next day.  Then I zoomed  in and saw ...

 

 

We were touring the Banff Springs Hotel when I snapped a photo of the staircase where a bride fell to her death in the 1920's.  Her ghost is said to appear there quite regularly.  Did I capture her image in this picture?

Hopefully more oddities coming soon
