“Jim Musgrave is a talented writer with brilliant ideas. His writing shows he is an educated man and very well-rounded. He can talk freely about religion, politics, and worldwide events with a vast knowledge. Moreover, his short stories will make you think and laugh.  I really enjoyed reading this book and I recommend it to anyone who wants to get a good laugh at the world around us.”

Stephen King commented in one of his books–sorry I don’t remember which one–that the popularity of short story compilations has lost favor with contemporary readers, and I guess he should know. If that is indeed the case, I would ask that you make an exception and consider reading Jim Musgrave’s The President’s Parasite and Other Stories as this is an exceptional book–contemporary, insightful, poignantly honest–a glimpse into the down- or back-side of life.”                                               

Kaye Trout’s Books Reviews.


“As an author, Musgrave exhibits two extraordinarily developed qualities: sharpness of perception, and vivid depiction of human characters.  One feature binding all the stories in The President’s Parasite is the urge to realize where the problem lies and the need to work out how to tackle it. In this sense, these stories are a practical guide to wise judgment and use of one’s brains.”
