Pentucket Publishing’s debut stories both come from the pen of David H. Hendrickson. This award-winning author writes in many forms and genres and these stories prove that point. “Beloved” and “Back to the Garden,” which both initially appeared in DAW anthologies edited by Denise Little, use Biblical characters, a first (though probably not last) time for him.
After David slays Goliath, he falls head over heels in love with himself. But he’s not alone. King Saul’s daughter Michal intends to become his wife even if her father offers her sister’s hand in marriage. A love story with a smile.
“The conclusion turns [the reader’s assumption] on its head in a funny and honest way. I also found the last line in this story to be the funniest of the anthology by far.”
