Elevator Man Stories is a collection of funny, colorful and serious memories of working the past 40 years in the elevator trade. Our industry now has a pretty accurate recollection of what it was like back in the 1960's, 70's and 80's. It was a different time working on equipment that required a high level of expertise. A must read for any tradesman, especially if you're in the elevator industry! "I loved reading this book and couldn't put it down. Some of the stories were hilarious! I was sad when I finished, wanting to hear more about working in the trade. I've also got a whole new respect for elevator mechanics and the dangers of working the field. - Tom Sybert - Elevator Radio Show" A perfect gift for the person who has everything!

In Fitzgerald's world, everything that's delicious turns bitter; every party is a tragedy. At first, things seem sexy and sumptuous and doused in champagne. When the music stops, though, everything falls apart. Money is the beginning and end of everyone's troubles, and the world is sharply divided between those who have it and those who need it. Travel through the rich universe of this great author through these seven short stories specially chosen to please old readers and newcomers to Fitzgerald's work.

Author: Bill Jessome
Legends and lore from Canada’s rugged Maritime provinces, shrouded in the mists of the Atlantic Ocean . . . From the host of TV’s Maritime Mysteries, this book includes forty of the best stories collected from around the Maritimes. Using his journalist’s skills, Bill Jessome weaves incredible stories that both charm us and chill us.
