Stinky and the Buried Treasure

By Peter Grant

Comedy & satire, Short stories | eBook


Peyton Mayer, a colorful TV reporter, subleased a condo in Stinky and Eddie’s building when he moved to town. His sublease is almost up, and he’s purchased a condo in the older portion of the complex. While renovating his unit, he discovers a long-forgotten “treasure chest” with a window into an almost forgotten tragedy. One of the building’s first residents had an unhappy life except for a mysterious “Treasure” that helped her endure. Peyton is still Peyton and his continuing on air gaffes land him in hot water with a group of radicalized Jane Austen supporters because of his unending assault on the English language. Stinky shoos the combatants to neutral corners and helps Peyton understand the importance of what he’s found.



Imagine a world where a TV station gets angry letters when their reporter doesn't fluff his lines and where Jane Austen societies go rogue and target people who mar the purity of our language, and that's pretty much the world Stinky live in. "Stinky and the Buried Treasure" is one of fifty-seven Stinky Stories and is included in the final volume of collected stories, "The Importance of Being Stinky, Volume 8." Peter Grant is not a grammar Nazi and refrains from correcting posts on social media, but he knows some sticklers and they are out in force in this colorful tale. He also knows a librarian who has never moved her eyebrows more than one-quarter of an inch, and who inspired one of the characters in this story.
