SUMMONING ALICE KEPPEL by Richard Grayson now available at Amazon Kindle Store

Richard Grayson's Summoning Alice Keppel is now available at Amazon's Kindle Store for 99¢.

Here is the promo material for the 62-page $5.99 paperback edition from Art Pants Company:
In the four whimsical and compelling tales of British and American history collected in SUMMONING ALICE KEPPEL, acclaimed short story writer Richard Grayson creates an alternative universe where King Edward VII's mistress is worshipped as a goddess; where "Old Tippecanoe," President William Henry Harrison, is upstaged by a minor actor he considers a mere nuisance; where the madness of Cold War Defense Secretary James V. Forrestal has immense weird repercussions for decades; and where a 124-year-old New Jersey man hilariously explains the true story of the building of the Panama Canal.

The stories in Summoning Alice Keppel originally appeared in the literary magazines Chouteau Review, The Mill, Yellow Brick Road and Panache in the 1970s and also previously appeared in the hardcover books With Hitler in New York, I Brake for Delmore Schwartz, I Survived Caracas Traffic and Lincoln's Doctor's Dog.
