Short Story Collection is the culmination of a passion for story telling in the written form. Middleton has penned four stories: Direct Action, an unlikely friendship between a down-and-out and a farmer results in an unlikely resolution for the latter's hardships; Eugene's First Vacation and The Journey Home, three stories bridged by the same protagonist, a modest man from the American Deep South and his first online dating experience; and Stephen Harper's Gift, a tale of a bank robbery and the soluble paradigm of morals; each covering themes of justice, redemption and endurance, each story revealing everyday heroes within seemingly ordinary men, offering beacons of hope in dark times. Short Story Collection is equal parts wit and humour, Middleton's style and diction adaptable to the environment he transports the pen to and a masterclass in the art of suspense; in this instance, short is shorthand for powerful.
