Tom Geddie Publishes Novel of Future Humanity


County Line Magazine’s Tom Geddie has published his fifth book, a novel named For She Was Once the Thief of Time.

The book of “novel fragments” – sometimes seemingly disconnected chapters written for a 21st century audience – tells stories about humanity near what may be the end of time.

Readers praise Tom’s writing.

“Lyrical. Wise. Textured,” wrote Elizabeth Burnam, a writer and editor herself. “Images that are so beautiful they almost hurt . . . Your name will become classic and set new standards and perspectives about how to view the world and express them.”

“These books are masterpieces . . . Your words sing,” wrote Grammy-winning songwriter Terri Hendrix.

“They don’t reveal themselves all at once, and they suggest more than they reveal. A trove of gems,” wrote noted songwriter Richard Dobson. “You will want to keep Stolen Lies close by awhile, a collection to ponder and marvel over, each visit inviting another return.”

Tom also teaches creative writing, including doing school programs. His recent workshop at Tyler Public Library drew 40 attendees.

His other books are Stolen Lies, a collection of free-verse poetry; He Dreamed Fragments, a collection of short fiction; What Texas Music Really Is, a collection of columns about listening to music; and the essays Love & Masks & Ghosts.
