The Importance of Being Stinky, Volume 8

By Peter Grant

Comedy & satire, Short stories | eBook


Just when you think you know everything about Stinky and Eddie, they go and join an elite organization of literary partners and learn to ramble in and out of other characters’ tales. When someone stores multiple books on one electronic device, the characters are free to visit each other, as long as no one is reading their story. Our boys face their nastiest adventure trying to get into the club, but they don’t have time to dwell on painful memories once characters from world fiction shimmer into and out of their lives. Eddie wishes he’d paid more attention in high school English whenever oddly garbed people appear at his door. Stinky’s colorful granny returns to town with a faded, B-movie star who wants Stinky to fake her death for publicity. It’s not as easy as it sounds to come back from the dead, but Stinky is a fan from seeing her films on late night TV and does his best to bring her fame back from the dead. Granny is known for making an ancient secret Stinky’s problem, and in a second adventure she fills a chalice to the brim with trouble and hands it to Stinky. He’s mentioned her smuggling career from time to time; now we learn how she got into the profession. TV reporter Peyton Mayer is famous for his on-air gaffes, but his trouble with the English language is nothing compared to his lack of judgment. Peyton invites himself for a weekend at the shore and the family finds him less fun in person than on TV. In another tale we share his interest in local history when he uncovers a buried treasure. Stinky’s most prominent client convinces him to write a play. The characters are thinly disguised versions of his near and dear, and it looks like he has a choice of going to opening night alone or cancelling the production. Will the curtain go up or is it curtains for Stinky’s play? Could Stinky's mother really be joining an order of couture nuns for the employee discount? Stinky did some legal work for the Sisters of Disparity, so maybe he can find out what’s going on. This final collection of Stinky Stories proves that there is always something new to learn about the best looking man on the planet, and we’re grateful to Eddie for sticking with him. Eddie has gone through thousands of salt packets in order to swallow Stinky’s stories, but even though he’s tough to swallow, Stinky is never dull.

Shortly after graduating from a partially selective college, Peter Grant felt pretty sure of himself. His grandmother reminded him, "You're not bad looking, you're average." Eventually, the cruel import of her words registered and he set to the task of writing about Stinky Carter, the best looking man on the planet. Stinky appears in fifty-seven individual titles and eight collections, all of which are Amazon bestsellers. A reader compared one of his clerihews to Shakespeare, but might have been kidding. Grandma wasn't kidding. He's moved on.
