The Mayfly: Stories Kindle Edition
The life of a mayfly can be harrowing or hilarious, but it is always short.
So, too, the short story.
Fans of the genre will love the inventive specimens on display in Rogers’ rollicking debut collection. Follow a fraternity of aging engineering professors for a weekend of fun and felony. Ride along with a pro cyclist learning the cost of greatness. Watch the world’s first nuclear reaction through resentful eyes. And, in the collection’s cornerstone novella, read an aspiring writer’s private letters, dashed off during his deadly homecoming to Virginia City, Nevada, in 1867…
"The Stopover (The Miles High Club, 1)" by T L Swan
A memorable night of passion refuses to stay just a memory in this sizzling and scandalous romance from bestselling author T L Swan. | Learn more
"Rogers's pacing is impeccable and his cinematographer's sense of where to zoom in and where to fade out is little short of miraculous. [He] writes with the skill and precision of a brain surgeon wielding a scalpel. 10 out of 10."
- The BookLife Prize
"Rogers has opened the vein of brothers, lovers, and greed in the American West. I heard echoes in the mines, people who had taken me to their depths."
- Shaun Griffin, Nevada Writers Hall of Fame Member
"Written with verve and sensitivity."

f life. I could not put the book down. I laughed out loud, was sad, reflected on my life and enthralled with the creative writing. I look forward to Ben's next book.
The book is well worth reading and Rogers is an author to watch.
Each story is individual and different. Some made me a little uncomfortable, but all entertained. The first tale is the most complex and overwhelming - and I enjoyed it more as I re-read it after I finished the rest of the stories.
