About Me

If you like to read, you may be interested in one or more books of Howard Denson (a.k.a. William Howard Denson III, hd3, and d3nson). They are available on Amazon.Com and the Barnes & Noble website.

 

 

First, in the area of mystery, fantasy, and comedy, he offers the Mowbray series, about a lad who was struck by lightning while helping an eccentric scientist. He grows up able to see ghosts, except he can't tell right off that they are ghosts. These include MOWBRAY & THE SHARKS (set in 1937), MOWBRAY AND THE GHOSTS (1908-1919 ),  MOWBRAY AND THE BARON (1937-1938 ), MOWBRAY AND THE WOLVES, MOWBRAY AND THE CATACOMBS (1938-1939). 

 

Another series, set in the 1700s and early 1800s, features Levi Philip McGregor in. McGREGOR AND THE LOST TRIBE and McGREGOR AND THE PATRIOTS. Both are available in one volume: THE SAVAGE McGREGOR.

 

A campus-based mystery, GRIEVANCE WITH DEATH, features Edwina Heyward, a humanities and business teacher at Nathan Bedford Forrest Community College..

 A Western set in the 1870s is WOLFRAM AND THE RAINBOW RANCH. Old and widowed, Wolfram Reinboldt is known as "the meanest man in the territory," but he turns out to be quite the hero. A sequel of sorts is in the works, DESTINATION: RAINBOW RANCH. It is set in 1883 and afterwards and ties together story lines involving the explosion of the Krakatoa volcano in Sumatra, the brand-new Brooklyn Bridge, and the story of the beginning of the erection of the Statue of Liberty.

 

In science fiction, Denson has manuscripts involving robots and time-travel. In GETTYSBURG REDRESS and THE FLOOD OF TIME.

 

As an old man living in Chartres, France, Horatio Burdette tells about his life as a slave and servant to Judah P. Benjamin in THE CASE OF THE ANNIVERSARY LIBATION.

 

 

In THE WALDENTOWN EXPRESS, three heroes rescue the town from threats posed by nature and humans: Paul Pudley, the narrator and talkative assistant manager of a drug store; Mr. Randall Brown, an African American youth who runs around barefoot and "driving" a steering wheel; and Bill Podley and Bob Podly, the Waldentown drunks. Another Waldentown novel is THE MICHELANGELO OF MARSAY. It is about a young screwup whose immature behavior has driven off his wife and child. After watching the video of THE AGONY AND THE ECSTASY about 25 times, he gets the notion to paint his version of "The Creation of Adam" and "Adam and Eve in the Garden" on the roof of his dilapidated mobile home.

 

A QUANDARY OF FIBBLES is a comic fantasy that has horrible and nasty things occurring in the true love of youths in the Kingdom of Quandary. 

FIBBLE-FABBLES is a collection of fables set in the Kingdom of Fibbles. It features Emperor Leonidas (a lion), Juan Particular Sable (a sable), Empress Leocinda, and many others.

 

In the WILD-EYED MODERATE series, the reader will find SHOOT-OUT WITH A WILD-EYED MODERATE, GUNFIGHT WITH A WILD-EYED MODERATE, and DUEL WITH A WILD-EYED MODERATE.

 

The WILD-EYED MODERATE series contains several pieces on writing, communication, and language. With FINDINGS OF A FORENSIC GRAMMARIAN, Denson offers a description of the war between Descriptive Grammarians and Proscriptive Grammarians. The former simply describes (and often accepts) whatever occurs, while the latter sets down rules.

 PARABLES FOR OUR VEXING TIMES looks at some biblical parables and sees how they apply to the 21st Century.

THE COSMIC GOD CUP explores humans' relationship to (if any) a Higher Power. The basic metaphor is this: If God were a cup and we were fixed in our positions, we would be limited in what we could see, and understand, about God.
