Title: Tall Tales of Felony and Failure
Author:  Warren Haustrumerda
Publisher: Wild Child Publishing    .
Length:   Novel
Sub-Genres:  Dark Fantasy/Humor

  1. Tall Tales of Felony and Failure is a hilarious, mind altering, soul deadening ride through the eyes of a mildly insane and somewhat super-powered protagonist, Cranston Staigne. After discovering his ability to control time, Cranston embarks with his cohort Tom on a drunken escapade across three continents. During their travels, the pair commit numerous crimes, evade authorities, and cheat death. It’s magnificent decadence and dereliction as they explore unlimited power and unrepentant failure.

Tom and I are on the beach, celebrating. In two days we head back to the grind, back to the submarine and all that goes with it. We’ll be subjected to the drudgery of standing watch, running casualty drills, cleaning. I’ll be chasing hydraulic leaks and clogged plumbing. Tom will be chasing electrons or something.

Our boat has just started a six month deployment, but we were left behind for a few weeks. Tom had to finish a limp-wristed electronics course. I had to rest my broken brain, the sad result of a fight outside a bar, too late to be out with work the next day. Something to do with a collision between the pavement and my skull. All I remember is puking in the ambulance, then waking the next day with a diaper on my head.

I’ve been in the hospital for about three weeks, supposedly to be observed. I’ll be released in the morning.
I think the staff’s concern is waning, though. They haven’t been concerned enough to verify my continued existence since the third day. So I’m not concerned enough to stay in my room.

Tom picks me up just about every evening and we make the rounds in Waikiki. I’m convinced that the alcohol’s helping my body dissolve the blood clot that’s formed between my brain and skull. I don’t think it’s helping stave off the eminent brain damage I’ve noticed lately. I’m keeping an eye on that.

But none of that matters now. We’re on the beach, it’s three in the morning, and all of the beachside hotel bars have shut down. It’s just Tom and me in two stolen lounge chairs, choking through a bottle of store-brand tequila he found under the seat in his truck. Sometimes the homeless wander past. A few groups of drunks stumble past, trying to keep the night rolling after the town’s shut down. We ignore them.
