Your greatest fear is that it will be a bad day, a day when you lost your temper or let the dog run out in front of traffic, or a day when something happened that is only talked about in front of high-priced therapists.In my case it was the day my dad bought sod.Thus begins Donald J. Bingles award-winning short memoir about his father, a heart-warming, surprising, and humorous tale about how a single incident on a single summer day can become one of a childs favorite memories of his parent.This short, simple tale will bring both laughter and tears and create a lasting memory that no mass-produced Fathers Day card can ever duplicate.

Heres what reviewers have had to say:Says Robert J. Sawyer, Hugo Award-winning author of Hominids: Visceral, bloody -- and one hell of a page turner! Bingle tackles the philosophical issues surrounding uploaded consciousness in a fresh, exciting way. This is the debut of a major novelist -- dont miss it.Says Ed Greenwood, Creator of The Forgotten Realms™ and Author of the bestselling Elminster novels: I loved it! Many writers have explored hard-hitting and brutal possible futures for Earth, and told colorful tales of people trying to stay alive in them, but few have brought such imagined futures as vividly to life as Don Bingle -- and no other book I can think of examines how and why such a future might just happen as well as FORCED CONVERSION does -- or provides half the breath-catching twists and turns of Bingles yarn. A good read of the old school, coupled with all-too-plausible reasons for everything. A grim warning and a fast action adventure tale, all in one! Highly recommended!
