The Dark Forest by David W. Stoner
Below Mount Solitude lies a forest so dark and deep that even the animals refuse to venture inside. This is where the Little People live. The people who live in the small village built into the canyon walls above the river say the animals stay clear of the dark forest out of respect for the Little People. As long as there is peace among the Little People, the canyon people say, there will be peace among all. But is peace among the Little People possible? Or peace among all? The Dark Forest is about one man’s journey to find comfort and peace in a world of uncertainty and chaos.
Night's Passage by David W. Stoner
Night’s Passage is a story about two cowboys tucked inside a small cabin with a snowstorm bearing down on them. Jimson is worried sick about the snowstorm, worried that they won’t be able to find the cows the next morning, and Baker seems unconcerned and carefree. What makes them so different? They are facing the same difficult task of gathering cows in a blinding snowstorm, Jimson pacing around the cabin in a nervous fit, while Baker, so at ease, decides to tell a story, a story of a friend of his who got himself into a life or death situation. By telling the story, Baker hopes to calm Jimson down. Life or death. All of life is a flip of a coin, life on one side, death on the other. When faced with adversity, it is best to throw caution to the wind, toss the coin into the air, and let fate take us wherever it will.
