Detective Theo
&
Doctor Valentico

A Noir Series by Sonny Valentine


The Procurements of Sonny Valentine:

All Kinds of Stories


An Exciting Collection of Short Stories Presented as Cases by Sonny Valentine


EXCERPT:

Detective Bryant moved across the intersection alongside the car that waited for him. When the light changed, that driver gave their gas pedal more attention, causing the white hatch-back to drive off quickly. It neared the end of the next block at the same time that Detective Bryant took his first step on the curb. He walked alone, but his trench coat made up for it. The coat took up an equal amount of space on its path as a single unit of two or three rookie police.

When Theo stopped to observe the traffic passing on his right, the jacket clung to him. He moved forward at once, at a quick speed, his gate wider than before. He dashed towards the next intersection. As the corners of his trench coat floated out, he held onto his floppy-eared, deer-stalker hat with one hand.

The crime scene was already roped off with yellow tape when PI Bryant made his arrival. When he stepped under the yellow tape, he unbuttoned his long, pin-striped coat in one motion. Its three buttons opened enough to allow room for his hand to tuck his hat into the inside breast pocket in exchange for a small, wired notepad. He flipped the notepad open along its top coil, and as it hinged open he started to accomplish writing his Introductory Dossier, preliminary notes he would write before speaking to a badge-wearing member of the police department, on the scene.

A Novel by Sonny Valentine


Lift Your Spirits High With This Enchanting Story!

When his children and elderly father go missing, Inspector Cary Oriel becomes the prime suspect in their disappearance. Evading their captures and searching for answers, he comes across Captain Larry Stegner. Detective Theo and Doctor Valentico join the cause to find Oriel's family and save the planet from ultimate destruction.


EXCERPT:

The contraption goes up in the air, and for the first time this year Henry Edwards rides the sky. “The balloon keeps going up like that until we get to the sky’s limit, Grandpa?” the young boy inquires.

“No,” Oriel replies, “the sky is a place where the stars do live. We’re staying below them.

The Lost Poet of Woodlawn

by S. Sullivan

Introduction by Squire Shaun Vain


Welcome to a Universe Where Poetic Liberty Reigns Supreme.

We've left the bounds of our own world to enter the ether that brings us to the epic tale of a poet living in the future. Not too many people know what the cracks in our uni-verse look like, and yet, this lost poet is one of many (and many of us all) who dares to look into the confines within the gaps between life.


EXCERPTS:

(click to enlarge)


DESCRIPTION:

Shane Sullivan of Woodlawn has a plan that surely takes his futuristic utopian society by storm. He's endowed technology with the rights to publish his poems, 'The Hedges', for years to come. Part propaganda and part poetic liberty; but with the help of technology, his poetry unites humans and machines. Yet the poet cannot write on his parchment from the ashes where he has fallen. He is brought back to life by his heroic mother in this whimsical sci-fi fantasy novel.

The Lost Poet of Woodlawn is being called a strange, deep, thoughtful approach to modern poetic storytelling. This fictional found text serves as the author's first published novel. Perhaps time will tell us whether this book will become a classic. While that waits to be determined, for years after this publication, we'll witness this writer's body of work grow to a definable collection of truly creative literary works.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

After traveling the world and writing a series of detective novels and developing a few works for the future, Shaun Vain approached Future Publishing with The Lost Poet of Woodlawn, calling it a found text.

In reality, it's the third book he's authored out of several more to come, yet this epic tale marks his debut in the literary arena. Vain found his start as a novelist at age 30, before he took the small eclectic Future Publishing by storm. Contact author to enter ether and correspond with this author.

AMERICAN THEATRE
IN THE TWENTY-FIRST CENTURY:

Absurd, Symbolic & Poetic Short Plays


A
FUTURE PUBLISHING HOUSE
ANTHOLOGY


Volume I: Theatre


DESCRIPTION:

Theatre artists and playwrights from across the country have joined together to compile noteworthy, short theatrical pieces for an upcoming anthology of drama.

Playwrights include Baltimore actor Alexander Scally, Chicago writers Emma S. Rund and John Joseph Enright, and several other living playwrights. Edited by writer, actor, and thespian Shaun Vain.

Plays for this anthology were carefully selected by a unique review committee composed of theatre professionals from around the United States.

Press release for this book is available on Medium.


EXCERPT & PREVIEW:

The following excerpt is taken from To You & Me & the Ocean by Melanie Coffey:

LORE: (holding up her cup) To the sun. To everything she’s given us. Food and warmth and a little extra time.

SAOIRSE: Hear, hear! (grabbing the bottle) To the earth!

LORE: To the earth!

SAOIRSE: And the days we have left.


Absurd, Symbolic & Poetic Short Plays:

Theatre and short plays represent society’s struggles to redefine itself. Future Publishing House assembled an anthology that meets this order.

Readers should prepare to dissect themes, genres, and concepts that are crucial to the evolution of theatre in the American culture.

DESCRIPTION:

Everyone on Earth has been wondering what happened to famous playwright Andre Thespies. In this exciting fable, we follow documentarians, detectives, and mysterious creatures to another side of our dimension. In a land of giants, Andre Thespies has returned to his home to introduce his beloved fiance to his family. Giants make trouble for Andre's Family. He must choose between saving his loved ones and being with his Queen. Do you want to hear the fable?


EXCERPT:

"By the time you find this, everything that went wrong in the world will have already fixed itself. Of course that’s an overstatement. Greed will still haunt the hearts of plunderers. Hate will still rob the minds of wicked destroyers. Faithlessness will still wrought the souls of the weak. Luckily for us all, we’re more accustomed to the evils than we think. We’ve grown a thick skin to keep from shedding too many tears, for too much sorrow will only bring more sorrow, and forgetting your troubles is the quickest way to find happiness. The reversal that will have occurred by the time you read this is an astract prevention that has been done to keep all the water in our cosmic oversoul from depleting from its eternal reservoir.

After the relic I found and gave to the world in the form of the found text written by Shane Sullivan, the future poet from Woodlawn, was met with an abysmal mood, unbelievers knocked at the door of anyone that championed Sullivan’s manuscript, for people didn’t believe the book by a poet from the future could be sent back, and I had no way of proving how time travel among the ether does exist, until the ballad of Andre Thespies unraveled before my very eyes."
—from Introduction, REDACTED


MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK:

This epic fable is broken into four parts, in which we meet a new giant who stands in the way of our hero and his dreams. As Andre transverses the boundaries between our side of this dimension and his homeland, we're witness to the boundaries of the heart.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR:

After traveling the world and writing a series of detective novels and developing a few works for the future, Shaun Vain approached Future Publishing Service with The Lost Poet of Woodlawn, calling it a found text.

Frequently Asked Questions:


What types of materials does FPH produce? We provide print and electronic books to the general public (brick & mortar bookstores, online shops, libraries, universities, and directly to readers).

What types of authors are in the catalog? FPH gives priority to new writers in various disciplines, while providing a means of distribution, copyright protection, and a valuable publishing experience to playwrights, poets, novelists, and literary artists.

Why is publishing work by "new" writers important? We are new writers as long as we're writing new materials. The future of our civilization depends on preserving the thoughts and ideas of today's generation of up-and-coming artists.

Aren't there already enough books to read? While there are plenty of valuable thoughts and ideas expressed by brilliant minds of previous generations, it's the job of today's literary artists to take those ideas a step further. By applying values in a work of fiction or non-fiction, people are able to reflect about difficult issues.

How is FPH making publishing new work more accessible to its authors? While publishing through small presses, creating an author imprint, or self-publishing are within the reach of our authors, this operation is able to provide authors with support along the way, often including copyright protection, International Serial Book Numbers, assistance with formatting and proofreading. Meanwhile, authors receive the maximum allowable share of revenue from book sales.

Is there a fee for submitting work? Is there compensation? There is no fee to submit a piece for consideration. Please be advised, we may take a few days to respond to submissions, but you should receive a confirmation email that your piece is under review. There is no limit to the number of submissions. Compensation will be determined for published pieces based upon the nature of the book. For anthology submissions, royalties will be divided evenly among multiple authors regardless of page length of pieces. However, consider each accepted submission as a separate set of royalties (i.e. if two of your works are published in an anthology). The other forms of compensation are mentioned in the question above.

How are submissions judged? Submissions to Future Publishing House are screened by a committee of readers. After the deadline for submissions, our committee has three days to select their picks. To refrain from biased judgements, author names are removed prior to the reading period. No submissions may come from committee readers.
