Fiction. Volume I of the Hobblebush Granite State Short Story Series. SING, AND OTHER SHORT STORIES is a collection of ten tales from travel and adventure writer Dan Szczesny. It is his first collection of short stories. From 1930s South Dakota—where one of the last cowboys struggles to find meaning in a modern world—to the Alaskan tundra—where searchers race against time to find the pilot of a missing plane before the grizzlies do—SING is an ode to common people who are forced to make a stand. Szczesny's flawed characters illuminate the potential and the danger of regular people trying to be extraordinary.
