Festival of the Fatapult is a collection of short stories by Nathan G. Sellers. This book pays homage to and brings back the classic form of short story telling made popular by such American authors as Washington Irving, Stephen Crane, Edgar Allan Poe, Bret Harte, Edith Wharton, John Cheever, Raymond Carver, and a host of others. The book goes against the modern convention of short stories by bringing the hyperbolic back to what used to be one of the most popular forms of entertainment. In accordance with traditional short story form, Festival of the Fatapult spans a vast array of literary genres, from a touch of romanticism to a dab of gothic, from mystical and magical realism to fables and folk tales; part fantasy and part satire, this compilation is covered with absurdity and complimented with the Nathan G. Sellers style of literary entertainment. Contained in this book are eight short stories all strange, thought-provoking, and comedic. There is something for everyone in these pages. Fans of classic short stories will love this book, and those who are not fans will soon become ones.
