“It’s very difficult to portray the brilliant aspects of this book without giving plot spoilers . . . You’re then served a really ambitious, imaginative and original feeling story with some great “did that just happen!” moments.” – Bookstack Reviews.

“David Kubicek deals with the most profound of emotions, betrayal in a small community, and does so wonderfully.” – Lincoln Journal Star review of BALL OF FIRE.
“My particular favorite involves the threat of nuclear war [PROSPECT STREET] – and one man’s experience of being the last person to flee the town. As his friends and neighbors pack their belongings, this man revisits the memories of his life. It’s quite profound.”- A Novel Idea Bookstore.
Fifteen stories and a parody, which appeared originally in The National Lampoon, ranging from the commonplace to the bizarre, from deadly serious to whimsical. Includes the Pushcart Prize-nominated BALL OF FIRE. Before and after each story is my commentary of how it came to be written.

In a desolate future, long after the nuclear war, practicing medicine is illegal. Health care is provided by Healers who treat patients using superstitious methods like chanting and bleeding. Hank is a doctor who practices medicine only for himself and his family. His fear of being sent to prison has estranged him from the Underground, the loose network of physicians that tries to help people who have lost faith in the Healers. Then late one evening a 16-year-old girl named Gina knocks on his door. She has a secret of her own and the power to destroy Hank’s life if he doesn’t come with her and make her seriously ill father well. But there is one catch—Gina’s father is the brother of a Healer, who could send Hank to prison for the rest of his life.
Available as an eBook in Prospect Street and 4 Other Science Fiction Stories and in The Moaning Rocks and Other Stories.
