Publisher's Summary

The Last Whale Watch and Other Stories includes 13 short stories:

  • "The Last Whale Watch": A gifted engineer, fired for insubordination within the factory system of an interstellar corporation, chooses to rebel and construct a vehicle which will dazzle the known universe.
  • "72nd Street": An artist and an actress venture to New York seeking their fortunes. A number of obstacles trip them up, even jeopardizing their lives.  
  • "The Stuntman": An aging stunt performer, after years of recovering from crippling injuries, attempts a comeback.  
  • "August Storm": With his life in turmoil, an out-of-work hardware clerk is given an opportunity to win back his estranged wife. 
  • "Spoils of War": Even in a war, army officers seek ill-gotten pleasure in taking advantage of a defenseless young girl.
  • "Deadly Passage": A wandering sailor seeks revenge against a gangster responsible for the disappearance of his sweetheart, possibly being used in a prostitution racket.
  • "Bread": Two adventurous writers meet after sailing their vessels to Baja, Mexico. They look for inspiration in the taverns they frequent where unique individuals provide curious material to dwell on. 
  • "My Aunt Betty": She’s attracted to men in uniform. The aunt looks for companionship among the military (she loves to dance) and finds a marine master sergeant, whom she marries. 
  • "Prison Break": A brief account refers to the desperation an older person might feel enduring a lonely captivity in a rest home. 
  • "Fish Bait": This one might be described as a cautionary tale reminding parents about guarding their children against predatory molesters. Sad, these warped individuals do exist in society. 
  • "Naked Shore": A time when America was attacked at Pearl Harbor, and invasion on the west coast seemed imminent. 
  • "Death on Helena Drive": The sad passing of, many believe, one of the most popular movie stars ever. Questions remain long after her death. 
  • "Faraway" (novella): A disaster at sea nearly dooms the crew of teenagers. Each of them will persist, seeking personal fulfillment.
