Bad luck is the running theme for many of the characters in Schultz's stories, but his writing is dead-pan funny, infused with tinges of humanity sure to leave any reader anxious to read more.

Synopsis

Sometimes the Sun Does Shine There – and Other Stories is a collection of five twisted tales of deceit, despair, decadence, derision and revenge. The anchor story presents Larry, a stooper who picks up discarded tickets at the racetrack hoping to find a winner among the detritus. He is tormented by Vic, a vicious thug who puts him in the hospital where he meets a diligent worker and closet artist named Maddie. Larry soon discovers he is not the only victim of Vic’s evil inclinations. A bizarre turn of events puts Larry in a position to rise up from the racetrack floor and recover his dignity.

The other stories involve a grocery store robbery that exposes a fiend, a screenwriter on a mission who instead meets a minor character from a major motion picture, a bratty bond trader who tries to mend a fractured relationship with his upstairs neighbor, and a pair of scientists who invent a device that scrambles their futures.
