The Hermit's Confession in the Wilderness: excerpt from "Trouble in Paradox" by A.P. Eberhart, chapter 12 "Ever An Island" (Copyrighted material)

What was it that made you run off and build your hermitage, John? Why did you hide from the society of men all those years? What changed you from a prince to a pauper?

     With me it happened fast. I was twenty-two years old and living the high life--or as high as my credit-limit would allow, anyway. I drove a slick new sportscar, lived in a chic, stylish apartment downtown, and wore clothes from the expensive stores in the mall. I even had a cellphone in those days. I was a regular…

Paradox Valley sunset rendered in words; excerpt from "Trouble in Paradox", ch.14 'The Color of Fear' by A.P. Eberhart (Copyrighted material)

Excerpt from "Trouble in Paradox": from chapter 13 "The Human Echo"; a cultural critique of modern civilization. (Copyrighted material)
