Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces by Jay Dubja
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is adult literature that satirizes classic children’s folk tales, fables and fairy tales into more mature presentations featuring adult language, content and humor.
Author Jay Dubya goes right to work retelling Aesop’s Fables into “A Sap’s Fables.” Adult renditions of “The Town Mouse and the Country Mouse,” “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” “The Wind and the Sun,” “A Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing,” “The Lion and the Mouse,” “The Crow and the Pitcher,” and “The Rabbit and the Turtle” are all cleverly portrayed. Other famous fables rewritten into adult accounts are “The Fox and the Crow,” “The Goose That Laid the Golden Egg,” “The Grasshopper and the Ants,” “The Lark and Its Offspring,” “The Miller, His Son and the Jackass,” “Belling the Cat” and finally “The Dog, the Fox and the Stream.”
Folk and Fairy Tales from England, France, Germany and Russia are also imaginatively assaulted and converted into adult-oriented stories. Jay Dubya thoroughly corrupts “The Three Little Piglet Brothers,” “The Flashing Elves,” “The Golden Goose’s Goosing Curse,” “The Notorious Sleeping Beauty” and “Petite Red Riding Hood.” Other classic stories that are not saved from degeneration are “Jack’s Magnificent Beanstalk,” “Hansel and Gretel Dumkoff,” “Little Ebony Sambo,” “Rapunzel’s Draping Hair” and “Tom Thumb’s History.” Finally, the author completely corrupts into adult parody rewrites “Peter W. and the Wolf,” “The Rumpelstiltskin No-Spin Zone,” “Beauty and the Beastly Beast,” “Cinderella’s Fella” and the classic folktale “Flaky Snow White and the Seven Midgdwarfs.”
Fractured Frazzled Folk Fables and Fairy Farces is Jay Dubya’s twenty-first e-book. This book is definitely not written for or to be read by children.

PLOTS by Jay Dubya
Plots is a Jay Dubya acronym that represents a compilation of certain famous works by authors Edgar Allan Poe, Jack London, O. Henry, Mark Twain and William Shakespeare. Every good story indeed has a plot, or an essential problem (or problems) that must be solved. The problem can either be a direct physical threat or an imagined mental/emotional crisis existing within the main character’s mind, or perhaps the problem is represented by various combinations of those separate elements. In any case, the main problem must be addressed and/or especially solved during the story.
The particular stories selected by the author have been uniquely corrupted and then creatively rewritten into adult satirical style where Jay Dubya effectively uses adult language and situations, thus adroitly modifying the general integrity of the original works.

Ron Coyote, Man of La Mangia by Jay Dubya
Ron Coyote, Man of La Mangia is a funny and irreverent satire/parody on Miguel Cervantes/ Don Quixote, published in 1605.
Jay Dubya assumes the writing role of Sir Vantes. In the novel Jay Dubya uses over two dozen parallels between the Coyote and Quixote’ sagas. Ron Coyote is a wealthy peach and apple farmer. His trusty main foreman is Pancho Sanza. Coyote is the ideal dreamer out to change the world and Sanza is the practical hedonistic rascal quite happy with the way the world is dysfunctioning.
Ron Coyote comes under the influence of Calvin Mather, a televangelist who preaches that America should return to the moral values of its Puritan’ Founding Fathers. As a joke, Pancho buys Ron Coyote a Pilgrim suit, and soon the Man of La Mangia believes that he is a contemporary Pilgrim assigned by Heaven to save America from sin, crime and decadence.
Ron Coyote has a black ’38 Plymouth appropriately named Roachinante, a WWI vintage biplane Roachinante II, a stubborn mule called Clinton and a pig named Madonna. Ron Coyote dedicates his great quest to Della Cinnea, an obese school-crossing guard. As incentive for Pancho to accompany him, Ron Coyote promises Sanza a new shack with a flush toilet, and Pancho goes along with his employer because Sanza’s wife threatens him with castration if she doesn’t soon get indoor plumbing and modern sanitary facilities.
Ron Coyote and Pancho Sanza have many extraordinary adventures with the IRS, rowdy teenagers, tramps, Arab terrorists, the U.S. Army, cannibals, gays, the Mafia, motorcycle gangs, Della Cinnea, convicts, Russians and with Calvin Mather. Ron Coyote, Man of La Mangia is an adult novel that features adult language and situations. It is philosophical, risque, humorous and satirical.
Ron Coyote is adult entertainment, and it is not a book for the moral majority, for the politically correct or for children.

Hawthorne: Hazed Hooked Hammered & Hijacked by Jay Dubya
Hawthorne: Hazed Hooked Hammered and Hijacked is a collection of twelve Nathaniel Hawthorne classic novellas that have been creatively rewritten and satirized into adult parody form featuring adult content and language.
When author Jay Dubya had been a New Jersey public school English teacher, he often enjoyed reading and discussing Nathaniel Hawthorne’s “influential literature” with his sometimes enlightened middle and high school academic students.
For many years Nathaniel Hawthorne had attempted to become an established popular fiction writer. After a decent New England college education, Hawthorne soon returned to familiar Salem, Massachusetts where the aspiring author lived with his mother and sisters for twelve years, staying secluded in a lonely room writing short stories and novel manuscripts.
In 1837, his first work titled Twice-Told Tales was successfully published. Hawthorne was chummy with some of the more famous New England literary writers of his time including Herman Melville, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and Ralph Waldo Emerson. Two of Hawthorne’s better known works are novels The Scarlet Letter and The House of the Seven Gables. “Young Goodman Brown,” “The Great Stone Face” and “Rappaccini’s Daughter” are three of the author’s best known short stories.
Most of Hawthorne’s retelling of classic stories from mythology had been published in his work Tanglewood Tales. Another famous Nathaniel Hawthorne short story collection is Twice Told Tales, which includes the selections “The Minister’s Black Veil,” “Dr. Heidegger’s Experiment” and “The Great Carbuncle.”
Hawthorne: Hazed, Hooked, Hammered & Hijacked is Jay Dubya’s forty-eighth published hardcover/paperback book. The author’s works also exist in Kindle, Nook and Smashwords e-book formats. The pseudonym Jay Dubya is a corruption of John Wiessner’s initials “J.W.” John is married to wife Joanne and the couple has three grown sons. John and Joanne currently live in Hammonton, NJ, USA.
