Hello all! Sheriff Tom here. I seem to be the only one making Notes From Stansbury right now. That's cool, I guess. But I didn't even get an introduction this week. What gives? It's like I'm just expected to show up and write about short stories now.
Well, okay, it gives me something to do and it bugs Steve that I get to write stuff for the town blog and he doesn't. His little weasel face gets all twisted up which is just funny which makes this worthwhile.
Anyway, I suppose everyone else is outside doing things and too busy to stare at a computer screen. It's just too beautiful for words around now...or beautiful enough to partake of words outside. Books are wonderful for a lazy late spring day sitting out on the grass under a tree somewhere. When I was a kid, I used to love Roald Dahl's works and as an adult, I was thrilled to discover that he wrote stuff for us, too.

Sheriff Tom was so happy to take part in this, that we're letting him make this his weekly thing. We'd actually like to rename it, Sunday Shorts with the Sheriff. So here's our lawman with his pick for the week.

Hi, everyone. Being the sheriff of a small New England town that has...a history, it's only natural that I have some interest in the works of H.P. Lovecraft. I mean, when things around Stansbury get bad, I can at least look to Lovecraft's work and say, well, at least it's not as bad as all that. This week, I want to share the story, "Nyarlathotep" with you.

While Stansbury is not always the friendliest of towns to visitors, we do love it when authors come to visit. Today, we are proud to feature Desiree Finkbeiner and her novel, Ethos: Morning Star (Book #1 in the Ethos series).
When in town, she met up with Shelley, who always loves a good book, and Shelley asked Desiree if she could give us a preview of her book? What's the plot? What inspired her to write this kind of story?
Desiree was kind enough to respond:
Finding the trailer was easy enough...
Shelley also discovered the following information and posted it on the bulletin board inside Charlie's where people in the Stansbury like to share things with one another:
