Overview
Survival is a collection of sixty-two very short stories (50 by Mizeta, 12 by Howard), some less than a single page, and three longer works. The collection leads off with Howard's post-apocalyptic story "Survival", a multi-chapter tale set in the year 2084 on the northwest coast of Canada. The final story, also a longer one by Howard, is "Dark Mountain", an adventure tale set in current times in the Colorado Rocky mountains where innocent mushroom hunters become entangled with a drug cartel gang and have to fight for their survival. The third longer piece is a futuristic time-travel story by Mizeta, "Long-Term Investment", with some unexpected twists and turns.

About the author

Howard, with his musician wife Leslie, moved to Portland from New England in 2006 to begin semi-retirement from a career of academic and entrepreneurial medical research. Once settled in Portland, he started a custom wood-working business, Green Bench, which is still ongoing. In 2015, he and his friend and fellow writer, Woody La Chapel, founded SpearPoint Publications. Their intent was to provide another option for individuals, especially senior citizens, to publish their creative writing. As of 2019, SpearPoint has published nine books, seven of which are by Howard and/or Mizeta Moon, the pen name for Woody. In addition to Survival, the books are: Embracing Evil; Aliens, Fish Tales & Flying Hooves; Snapshots: Flash Stories From Random Lives; Monkey Casserole: 33 Selected Short Stories; Word Storms: Original Fiction; Danger Wears Pantyhose.

SpearPoint Publications also has a website where Howard and Mizeta, and other writers, can post their stories. Howard writes short fiction and serial adventure stories, and fluctuates between real-life settings and farce, fantasy, and exaggeration to create the worlds his characters inhabit. He frequently sets his stories in Portland, as is the case with the popular Einstein the Dog, an ultra-short story selection from SpearPoint's first book, Snapshots: Flash Stories from Random Lives.
