Feb 26, 2012

Welcome to Tales By Tom. This is the eigth installment of Tom Cagley Sr's short story collections entitled, “Plain and Simple.” 

The stories  . . .

Story 14. The Bookman: I found a lot of treasures in the pages of the ABA magazine and was able to buy many. Isn’t it sad that I remember the ones I missed just as well? And I don’t mean just books but true one-of-a-kind treasures you wouldn’t ever see displayed on a library shelf.

Story 15. It’s an opinion: there’s an article in the magazine section of the New York Times every Sunday. I read it faithfully. Some are not worth time, but it gets to be a habit with me. This one is written by Ariel Kaminer, a self-styled ethicist. I have written about two that caught and kept my attention, first word to last. What would you have done in either case mentioned?

I encourage you to provide feedback on these stories or any of the earlier shorts by email at or by voicemail at 1 206 339 5456.  Check out the podcast and on downloadable iTunes at
