Following the success of the beautiful vel, THE HONEYBEE GIRL, Hiser returns with TROPICAL CALYPSO, stories that dazzle like imagination candy. Reading Hiser is like changing channels on your TV and finding quirky, odd, lovely episodes on every channel, without any commercials. Able to switch from true love to horror and then dive into ather realm where fish swim in the air and blackbirds prophesy death, Hiser gives your brain something to think about. . .and it isn't always safe.
