Maynard Soloman Solves The War On Drugs Benjamin Sobieck

What happens when you have a cranky old guy with intestinal issues, an RV, spray paint, Walmart and The ATF? Why you have the first, hopefully of many, adventures of Maynard Soloman. The thing about it is not the hijinks that Maynard gets into, but the prose. It is so rich and amazing that that is what makes it for me. The comedy of the situation, you fruit bat, is just a side bar to the whole thing. I defy you in today’s modern digital short story universe to find something like it, that evens comes close to comparing to it. My experience with Maynard is different than others; I had the privilege of watchng him being born on the digital page during “Who Whacked The Blogger”, the Author’s Lab/Collaboration I did with Benjamin Sobieck. I told him right away, once I read his part, that he needs to run with the character; he is amazing, or something along those lines.  

Old gumshoes have been done before and will be done again, but Maynard Soloman has a wit, a charm, and a way with words. The originality, the direction and the narrative are just too great to pass this read up. Dropping the $.99 on both “Who Whacked The Blogger” and “Maynard Soloman Solves the War on Drugs” is an investment in laughs, smiles and fun. Hop into Maynard’s  ‘bago and go for a ride; have some fun. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Here is a little something more on Maynard:

“It takes a cranky ol' badger like the semi-retired PI Maynard Soloman to solve something as lofty as the War on Drugs. But the cantankerous detective does just that in "Maynard Soloman Solves the War on Drugs." It all starts with a case of indigestion late one night. This short story is part of the Maynard Soloman series from Trestle Press, dedicated to bringing readers the crustiest in satirical humor.

Benjamin Sobieck is the author of "Cleansing Eden" and The Author's Lab/Colaboration "Who Whacked The Blogger" in addition to the new Maynard Soloman series of digital short stories. His professional journalism career spans newspapers, magazines, television, websites and books. Sobieck is currently an online editor for a group of national outdoors magazines and one television show. He has a degree in journalism and a minor in creative writing from St. Cloud State University, Minnesota. He and his wife reside in Minnesota. “
