Pelekinesis is proud to present "Lift Your Right Arm" by Peter Cherches, five sequences that are minimalist novels of sorts—thought-provoking, mostly deadpan prose that is often darkly humorous. From the stark relationship studies of "Bagatelles" and "Dirty Windows" to the wry observations of "Mr. Deadman" and "A Certain Clarence," the stars of these pieces are Peter Cherches’ unique takes on Everyman and Everywoman—dead or alive—navigating a world in which very little is what it seems.

"Packed into Lift Your Right Arm are conundrums, Abbott-and-Costello dialogues, nonsense narratives and other playful—sometimes hilarious, sometimes subversive—assaults on logic," says Billy Collins. "To Gödel, Escher, and Bach we might consider adding Peter Cherches."

Pelekinesis is proud to announce "Tales of a Minstrel" by Tala Bar, a collection of nine short pieces that weave a colorful and picturesque story, full of magic and fantasy.

Gayle Brandeis, author of "The Book of Dead Birds", winner of the Bellwether Prize for Fiction of Social Engagement, and other novels says, "In Tales of a Minstrel, Tala Bar reminds us of the power of storytelling, and shows us that even in a world brimming with magic, the greatest magic
of all is love."

The stories within "Tales of a Minstrel" describe magic and life and love, enchanted animals, dragons, and evil wizards as Finbar the Minstrel travels across time and great distance. The book concludes with an epic battle featuring Ofara the Witch, another of Tala Bar's intriguing characters,
who calls upon Finbar to help defend the world against a wizard who seeks to destroy all witches.

Tala Bar tells this tale in nine vignettes, discrete stories that paint a vivid and compelling work. Tala Bar's storytelling may even rival that of Finbar himself.

"Tales of a Minstrel" by Tala Bar is available from Pelekinesis, distributed by Ingram and available online.
