Tea in Crimea Book Trailer

Alright, alright, alright … I bashed out a trailer for Tea in Crimea to share around on social media, and thought I’d share it here on the blog, as well. If this doesn’t grab you by the shirt collar and compel you to read, I don’t know what will.

Short Story: Fastball; 1978
