About-

The Addison Collection provides thoughts and observations designed to encourage us to think about philosophical, social, and political issues of interest.

“It’s a Buck” describes a teenage boy’s thoughts and feeling while experiencing the initial frustrations and then unexpected rewards of being a first-time, successful deer hunter. “Retreats of Stones and Mosses” is a short story about a population of tiny minnows that find and experience a temporary utopia in their country stream. It illustrates how an absence of daily challenges, which are found in a mainstream environment, can lead to apathy and prolonged despair. “Space Visitors” involves aliens who arrive on Earth and provide insight on our perception of time and space travel. They state that the emphasis we place on an ideal life in the hereafter shouldn’t cause us to overlook the importance and beauty of contemporary life.

The treatise, “Our Model Nation,” suggests that the basic values and character of America serve as a forerunner to how the world of the future will be structured. It addresses issues specific to crime and punishment, threats of aggression, natural vs. institutional government, and social destiny.

The reader should find this collection interesting, enjoyable, and thought-provoking.
