Guest Authors — the Brothers Salter

Sharing a Recent Interview and Some Cool Reviews

Of Our Recent Anthology of Short Stories

By Jeff Salter

On Hound Days during the Guest or Review week each month, you don’t usually see ME. But I’m in this picture since I’m a co-author. It’s all about my big brother and I in our most recent collaboration. Read these excerpts from several recent reviews and then be sure to click on our interview in the Manhattan Book Review.


Death Do Us Part
J. L. Salter & Charles A. Salter
Remember those ground-breaking series from TV’s Golden Age which explored the frontiers of human consciousness… and the dividing line between reality and other dimensions? Like those powerful stories, our new collection aims to bend your mind, squeeze your psyche, give you chills, and maybe pluck a heart string. Ten tales of mystery, suspense, and high-octane action.

Dingbat Publishing — December, 2019
Only $2.99 in electronic formats


“J.L. Salter writes gripping action…Charles A. Salter’s prose has a boldly surreal edge…the stories’ events are sufficiently curious and unnerving to make for compelling reading. Intriguing and unsettling in equal measure…” Kirkus Reviews.

“This short story collection is comprised of ten imaginative and tautly written page-turners, reminiscent of The Twilight Zone but with a new and fresh take… well drawn characters… a hard book to put down.” San Francisco Book Review.

“…sure to appeal to a large audience…. The stories flow so smoothly… fun to read.” Manhattan Book Review.

“…a highly accomplished collection that was a pleasure to read from start to end… the stories are well-timed and well-paced to deliver a quality punch… a bold collection of truly original stories, told by a pair of excellent writers.” K. C. Finn for Readers’ Favorite.

“The Salter brothers know how to create intense stakes for their characters and give readers surprising twists in their tales. Simply put, Death Do Us Part is a dark but enjoyable read that will delight fans of the genre.” Lit Amri for Readers’ Favorite.

      Thanks for visiting again, Trisha. Yes, we do: we co-authored two non-fiction books dealing with issues of librarianship, released by one of the top three publishers (at that time) of professional library material: On the Frontlines: Coping with the Library’s Problem Patrons (1988) and Literacy and the Library (1991).
      We also co-authored a lengthy signed article in a specialty encyclopedia (2003) on homelessness issues in libraries, and a signed chapter in a book (about problem patrons) in a book published by Am. Lib. Assn. (95 ?).
      But since the point of your question was more likely about fiction, we do have plans to compile another anthology of short stories… plus my brother is working on a new solo novel which features characters from one of his stories in the current anthology.
