Sam Swain, ex-Chief of Police and Delmore’s uncle, believes the two events are linked, but it’s 1956, and the police will not investigate what role a missing white man might have played in a black man’s murder.

Swain must also face his own guilt for putting his family at risk.

Set during a time of political and social upheaval, Smokestack Lightning is a tale about the persistence of truth and the necessity of forgiveness.

Tales From The Leeward Lounge

by I. C. Talbot

A collection of eight short stories from author I. C. Talbot. These are tales of normal women dealing with some of life’s hardest lessons.

It has been speculated that I. C. fictionalized stories she heard from her customers at The Leeward Lounge, a small tavern she owned and ran from 1971 to 1987.

Born in 1923 in the little town of North Kingsville, Ohio, and growing up in the Great Depression. I. C. Talbot went to a little school where she knew everyone for all twelve years. She graduated Valedictorian in a class of 13 students. She then went on to the Ashtabula Business College, the first woman in her family to seek higher education.

Her first job was as a typist, then she worked as a secretary for a firm of lawyers until the firm dissolved during WWII. From there she went to work for City Hall, until she landed a job with the New York Central Railroad. When it merged with the Pennsylvania Railroad in 1964, the Reclaimation Plant closed. From there she went to work for Union Carbide in their Linde` Division until she retired from there.

When the economy went south in the 1970’s she bought and operated a tavern from 1971 to 1988, until she retired a second time. After her first retirement, she and her husband traveled in an RV, where she did the bulk of her writing. They finally settled in Kentucky when they could no longer travel and did not care to battle the northeastern Ohio winters.

With the help of her daughter, she decided to e-publish her collection of over 350 short stories. She said of her writing: “I write pulp fiction. My stories are pure entertainment for women.”

I. C. Talbot passed in January of 2014. Icy Road Publishing was formed to continue publication of her work.
