Curiosity Killed the Sphinx and Other Stories is a collection of short fiction exploring the complexities of life. Laying the profound beside the mundane, author Katherine L. Holmes creates rich and complicated characters who search for identity, meaning, and purpose within a world often dangerous and sometimes even cruel.
A couple clashing with early computers, a divorced woman finding her scattered family to be strangers, a girl running away to the shop where her parents’ antiques were sold, Midwestern college students in weather and water emergencies – these are some of the conflicts examined by the author.
Curiosity Killed the Sphinx and Other Stories was published as a paperback in late May, 2012, and in Kindle and ebook in August 2012 by Hollywood Books International, the fiction imprint of Press Americana. It is available on Amazon.com, Amazon UK, Barnes & Noble and other online booksellers.
