Stories Varied - A Book of Short Stories

By BS Murthy

Short stories, Women's fiction, Romance, General fiction, Literary fiction | eBook


All the twelve short stories in this book are about women's dilemmas in the Indian social milieu accompanied with unique denouements. While 'Ilaa's Ire' contrasts woman's lot of the day with her eminence in the Vedic Age, '201' Qualms" depicts her predicament, torn between personal loyalty and citizen's responsibility. As "?" addresses woman's marital stress in an alien land, 'Cupid's Clue' is about her acting on rebound in her native place. Even as 'Autumn Love' lets woman discover the marital void in her life, 'A Touchy Affair' makes her amenable to her man's other woman. Just as 'Love's How's That' inflames woman's old flame, 'A Hearty Turn' brings her innate lesbian leanings to the fore. If 'Love Jihad' bridges lovers' religious divide with a secular plank, 'Tenth Nook' creates her marital gulf on the materialistic ground. While 'Eleventh Hour' is about woman's lust for love, 'Twelfth Tale' underscores her zest for power. This is a free ebook.

Schooled in letter-writing, BS Murthy, born 27 Aug 1948, graduated to articulate his managerial ideas in thirty-odd published articles before penning fiction with the ‘novel art’. Beginning with Benign Flame: Saga of Love, he fashioned two more ‘plot and character’ driven novels, Jewel-less Crown: Saga of Life and Crossing the Mirage: Passing through youth before switching over to the narrative non-fiction with Puppets of Faith: Theory of Communal Strife. After versifying the Sanskrit epics, Vyasa’s Bhagvad-Gita (Treatise of self-help) and Valmiki’s Sundara Kãnda (Hanuman’s Odyssey) in contemporary English verse (can also be found in Constitution Society.com, Boloji.com, Vedanta Spiritual Library, gatewayforindia.com etc.) and ascending Onto the Stage - Slight Souls and other stage and radio plays, he returned to fiction in the stream of consciousness mode with Glaring Shadow - A stream of consciousness novel and Prey on the Prowl - A Crime Novel. And finally he reached the short story horizon with Stories Varied - A Book of Short Stories.
