NEWS NUGGETS:Fiction Old and New Announces!

Fiction Old and New welcomes our fellow moderator and author, Ann Parsons on

Friday, September 4, 2020 at 8:00 p.m. eastern time. We will be discussing Ann’s novel,

“The Demmies”, which is available on Bookshare and Kindle.  Please join us for a lively and engaging conversation and don’t forget to bring your questions and comments.


Here is the Bookshare annotation:



The demmies were the public’s darlings, but they led a double life. By day, they posed for pictures, were guests on TV shows, and helped to increase knowledge about genetic engineering by taking part in scientific experiments. By night, they faced Dr. Albert Lud’s unauthorized experiments and his torture. Was there something better for the genetically engineered, foot-high humans? Could they escape? If they did, could they find food, shelter, and freedom from the ogre who tormented them? Could they trust any of the “big folk” to help them? These were some of the questions that kept Alex Kenyon awake at night. His daughter Ruth wondered what made a human being. Was it size? Was it intelligence? Was it belief in God? What made her know she was a human being, even though only nine inches tall? This is the story of how Alex’s and Ruth’s questions are answered.
