These introspective tales (described by one critic as ''the perfect panacea for minds stressed by life's challenges'') feature animals, allegories and melodramas of everyday life. At the center of the stories are tiny creatures (a sparrow, earthworm or paperclip) struggling to make sense of larger mysterious forces. Human protagonists are equally perplexed by ordinary events - like searching for a lost key, watching late night TV, or eating a taco. ''Balengo's tales bring a sense of dark humor and unconventional whimsicality to our daily interactions. ...four stars for its originality and perspectives on the ins and outs of life.'' -- SAN FRANCISCO BOOK REVIEW.

A thrilling tale of revenge set against the vibrant backdrop of sensationalist modern media Seasoned reporter Sanford “Fuse” Petty is old-school in every way—anti-technology, anti-Millennial (don’t even mention Gen-Z), and anti-“gotcha” journalism. After Fuse is asked to leave his paper pending a disciplinary investigation, he has plenty of time on his hands. So when his oldest friend approaches him for advice after the man’s daughter says she was sexually assaulted by her boss, a prominent media star, Fuse agrees to help. He gives his buddy the only options he feels are available: report the incident to the police and risk a huge “he said/she said” smear campaign against the girl, or plan something even better—revenge.

''A courageous, important book.'' ''Riveting, to say the least.'' 'Preludes is a brave book, one that confronts its ugly subject matter directly and honestly. It does not wallow in depravity; rather, it gains its power largely through understatement.'' ''Poignant, moving, and well written.'' A nine-year-old boy in a respected family is raped and then repeatedly molested by his father. How does he experience the abuse and how does he survive? Written by a child sexual abuse survivor, this new, novel-length edition of Preludes examines these questions while probing the family and societal dynamics that allow child sexual abuse to occur as well as possible solutions. A searing portrayal of in-family child sexual abuse rarely seen in fiction, Preludes is a compelling story about a defining issue of our time, liberation from oppression, and personal and societal healing through enlightenment.

The novel tries to answer the question if you can find true love before you find yourself. It does this through the story of a young man, Karma, who travels the world in search of true love. He meets three women on this journey; each as different from the other as can be but something connects them. Each of them gives him a glimpse of this “something”. He hungers for the rest of it, though he doesn’t himself know what it is. His relentless pursuit of this “something” becomes so much of an obsession that he breaks too many rules on the way and ends up earning the wrath of karma, the immortal and relentless collector of soul-debt. There could be one woman who might just be able to redeem him. But will he get to her in time? Zen’s Bio: Zen’s approach to writing is to bring a fresh perspective. His debut novel, published in French, was seen to be refreshing.
