I May Be Big But I Didn't Cause That Solar Eclipse is award-winning Canadian humorist Gordon Kirkland's fifth book. Three of his previous books received Canada's prestigious literary award, The Stephen Leacock Award of Merit For Humour. His syndicated newspaper column.

In addition, he is in great demand as a speaker at conferences, conventions, and festivals throughout North America. An April 2006 profile of Kirkland in the Canadian edition of Reader's Digest said, "Kirkland's specialty is making others laugh at him, at themselves, and at life in general." In this book, Kirkland once again takes on subjects ranging from marriage to dealing with a canine companion. He looks at the odd events of daily life, and even finds humor in the experiences of moving and having a serious illness.

Symposia: Short Stories About Modern Life Humor
View Herc's bio page

Every civilization needs to reflect on what is or is not important. In times gone by, it was knowledge, love, or honour. Things have changed.

At the dawn of Western society, great thinkers and writers such as Plato, Aristophanes, and Euripides bent their minds to the many problems that beset our fledgling civilization. Their toil played no small part in making the West what it is today. Time marches on, however, and Western civilization has evolved and changed. Sadly, Plato and his toga-wearing contemporaries are no longer all that relevant to your average iPod toting consumer.

Symposia is made up of 5 short stories that revisit the themes that motivated Plato, Aristophanes, and Euripides. Thankfully, they are not around to complain...

Introducing Fearless Francis Humor
View magpie's bio page

Fearless Francis is a little boy living in Glasgow in the late 1950s. He lives in a fantasy world, playing in the tenement streets and backcourts, having all sorts of imaginary adventures…….but they are more like mishaps!

Children growing up in these old run-down Glasgow tenements did not know that the poor sanitary conditions and low pay endured by their parents contributed to ill health and low living standards.

A young healthy child like Francis only knew that fun could be had with his friends among the discarded furniture, abandoned cars, tin cans to use as footballs or climbing up small outhouses in the backcourts. Children did not need expensive toys to play with, just their imagination.

This introduction has 4 short stories:

The Martian Invasion Of Cubie Street

The Phantom Jobby Flinger

Gunfight On The Auchenshuggle Express

Love Lust and Petty Crime Humor

Emmet Storch was an unemployed sponger who thought he had no calling in life. All that changed when he landed a job in the call centre at the monolithic Star Insurance where, from the very first day, he was magnificent. It was as if the very essence of insurance ran through his veins and he and his telephone were as one. Irate policyholders found comfort in his soothing words; recalcitrant contractors became polite and respectful. It would have been perfect if not for his lecherous and treacherous hormones.

A humorous look at love and lust in the iAge where consumerism runs rampant and integrity can go and get stuffed.

Love Me, Need Me: A Narcissist's Tale Humor
View LisaMaliga's bio page

"Love Me, Need Me: A Narcissist's Tale" is about a bumbling sexual predator, narcissist, and author of three insipid zombie books. Middle-aged Arlen J. Stevenson hails from Alabama. His relentless and often hilarious pursuit of women online leads him to our other protagonist, Los Angeles-based writer of term papers, Helena Hoffman.

She isn’t aware of what Arlen is as she only sees his amusing and entertaining side in their daily email correspondence.

Told in alternating points of view, we see Arlen’s self-absorbed lifestyle as he endeavors to screw his numerous catches all over the South. Helena and Arlen get friendlier via their online communication, and he invites her to be his personal manager because of her communications skills, gullibility factor and location. Unlike his other victims, she never sends him pictures of herself, but she launches a MySpace site for his new company. Soon he realizes there are thousands of available women in his region alone! Unlike the jailbait that many online stalkers pursue, Arlen chases after their mothers and grandmothers. Helena is aware of his perpetual cheating and decides to investigate it in person. What happens after that is alternately scary and darkly humorous.

This controversial book contains graphic sexual content and language.

The Wrinkly Humor

The Wrinkly.
An early retirement in an idyllic community. Well, that was the plan...

Mike Lewis wants 'out'. Out of his meaningless career in broadcast sales, out of his shallow relationships with materialistic women, out of the youth-centric, big city rat race. Unfortunately he has no idea where 'in' is, until he discovers an idyllic retirement community in Florida that promises a peaceful, sunny life of golf and hobbies. On a whim he signs a contract for a house, and only afterwards does he read the small print: he has to be over 60 to join the enclave. Trouble is, he's 39.
Painted into a corner, he engages the help of a movie-makeup artist and a gerontologist and cons his way into the club. But, once inside, he finds that paradise also has its share of problems, as well as crime, cross-generational lust and an unforeseen identity crisis.

It has received positive reviews at various websites and ebook blogs.

The Job: Based on a True Story (I Mean, This is Bound to have Happened Somewhere) Humor
View Craig Davis's bio page

By Craig Davis

Joe B. enjoys the sweet life as a vice president at a huge conglomerate, Universal Whirligig, where his career has been humming. But along with the Big Boss’ favor, he has also gained the notice of a bitter human resources manager, Luci Fernandez. Hateful of any success but her own, Luci manages to get him demoted to the mailroom! A rollicking comedy of errors follows as Joe B. tries to figure out what's happened to him -- why he and his home have been consigned to such suffering -- and attempts to get a meeting with the Big Boss.

Joe B.'s great expectations have taken an all-over twist. His family is forced to make a series of hard adjustments, and he gets only lame comforts from a string of the worst friends anyone could have. Will he persevere in the workplace? Will he finally track down the cause of his frustrations? Or will he only learn a lesson about what it is to be the boss, and that what is apparent is often only a shadow of a greater ongoing good?

The Midwest Book Review calls "The Job: Based on a True Story (I mean, this is bound to have happened somewhere)" "a humorous and enlightening read. Highly recommended." "The Job" is a modern parable, a comic tragedy of ancient troubles and truths.

At Last, a Coming—of—Age Novel That Captures The Essence of the Sixties...
David Justin is an Italian-Catholic, height-challenged youth, who is desperate to escape the bonds of sexual repression and adolescent innocence that hold him captive in the Age of Aquarius. Determined to cross that invisible line that separates childhood from manhood, David and his friends approach every encounter with a member of the opposite sex as a potential “first time.” Yet, they are always thwarted, due primarily to their own laudable sense of propriety. Their efforts are heroic yet laughable at the same time.
But, this is the “The Sixties,” the era of “sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll," and David will not be deterred—or will he? Find out what happens, as you follow his hilarious misadventures in Escaping Innocence (A Story Of Awakening) by Joe Perrone Jr. Available in regular and large print paperback and Kindle editions.

His goal with his writing has always been to let his readers laugh with him and at him, and by doing so, finding a way to laugh at themselves.

And I Thought I Was Crazy! Quirks, Idiosyncrasies, and Meshugaas  Humor
View judyreiser's bio page

•Do you refuse to take the top newspaper on a stack (even if perfect)?
•Insist that the toilet paper hang "over"?
•Wait for the phone to ring at least twice before answering?
•Keep returning to the refrigerator hoping that something new to eat has materialized?

Everyone has at least one oddity in his or her daily way of life. Judy Reiser offers up outrageous, outlandish and downright ridiculous eccentricities exhibited (and confessed to) by otherwise normal people. From hilarious bathroom behavior, funny money routines, and unconventional clothing habits to eating and sleeping peculiarities, germ-a-phobia, and more. Reiser documents the zany traits that make us who we are.

Just what extremes do people go to in their everyday activities?

•Flipping through a magazine at a newsstand then reaching for a fresh copy to buy because the one they were flipping through is no longer new.
•Enumerating (1, 2, 3...) while urinating and trying to end their peeing on an even number.
•Eating the most expensive part of a meal first, just in case they can’t finish everything.
•Ironing the newspaper before reading it to protect themselves against germs.
•Wearing T-shirts an equal number of times so none of them will get offended.

You will laugh while gaining insight into yourself and others!
People do the darndest things!
