THE COME-FROM-BEHIND HORSE And Other Stories
Writing short fiction for over twenty years, Howard Giordano has published seventeen different stories in an assortment of twenty-two literary magazines. One story was a finalist in a Glimmer Train Press contest. Another, a racetrack tale, was a contest finalist in The Thoroughbred Times, a national racing magazine, and published in their ten-year anthology of winning stories. In three consecutive annual contests sponsored by the Creative Writers Notebook, one of his stories placed first, and two others received honorable mentions. This short-story collection is close to his heart and provides the reader with a strong sample of his creative storytelling ability.
