REVIEWS:

"In Normally Peculiar, Greg Tamblyn strips away the seriousness of life and exposes the humorous side we often miss. Tamblyn is a contemporary Mark Twain, who once remarked, 'I have known a great many troubles in my life, most of which never happened.' Buy ten copies of this book - one for you and nine for your friends. You'll make the world a better place."
    - Larry Dossey, MD, author of Space, Time and Medicine, Meaning and Medicine, and others


“Fasten your seatbelt! Greg Tamblyn takes you on a series of unforgettable adventures that warm your heart and tickle your funnybone.”
    - Brian Luke Seaward, PhD, author of Stressed Is Desserts Spelled Backwards, Stand Like Mountain, Flow Like Water, and others


“A delightful read! Greg Tamblyn’s ability to tell a good story rivals his talent as a singer-songwriter.”
    - Mardy Grothe, PhD, author of I Never Metaphor I Didn’t Like, Oxymoronica, and others


“With wisdom, humor, and a warm heart, Greg Tamblyn brings refreshing perspectives to the chance adventures of everyday life.”
    - Peter Russell, PhD, author of The Global Brain, From Science To God, and others


“Greg Tamblyn sneakily delivers the insight and wisdom of the best self help books, but is way funnier.”
    - Pam Grout, author of E-Squared, Art and Soul, and others


“Laugh and learn on this travel adventure with a suspiciously healthy guide.”
    - Bowen White, MD, author of Why Normal Isn’t Healthy, and others

A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR

Normally Peculiar was originally released in print as Atilla The Gate Agent: Travel Tales and Life Lessons from a Musical Lafologist. Thousands have been sold under that title, to positive reviews and comments.

Normally Peculiar is the same collection of feel-good, funny short stories, mostly about travel. A few have have been revised, and a couple have been expanded. Also, more funny travel quotes and life lesson quotes have been added.

I'm reasonably sure it will amplify your amusement, increase your inspiration, and improve your digestion.

If you do enjoy it, I hope you’ll share that happy fact with your friends, and encourage them to buy a copy.

Even better, if you take a minute to leave a short review wherever you bought it, I’ll be grateful.

MONEY BACK GUARANTEE

If you don't enjoy this collection of funny short stories, please let me know. I'll refund your purchase.

“I've been home sick for 2 days with a cold, and ran out of reading material. Luckily I found your book. What a terrific, inspiring read. Loved the stories of Evy McDonald and Patch Adams, and of course all your own stories. Thanks!”
- Pat, Kansas City


“Your book is a gem! I laughed at Attilla, cried with McDonald, and found poignant pearls throughout. Thank you for writing it. Your wide angle view of taking a big bite out of the apple of life always energizes me in the best possible way.”
- Paul Steinhauser, St. Paul MN


“Your book is a beautiful, heart-health-promoting, good laughs treat. Thanks!”
- Jay Bremeyer, Colorado


“I read your book last night. Kept thinking I would stop after the next story, but found I was just too drawn to read on. The subtitle is apt. Your stories run the gamut from hilarious to poignant and your ability to mix the two allows the reader to experience a true slice of life.   I genuinely enjoyed it and know others will as well.”
- Kathleen Smith, Kansas
