She writes and draws (splendidly) in a cartoon monotone that masks the wit, intelligence, and reflective anger that hums beneath the surface.

Its a pleasure to know shes around. -- Jules FeifferReality is not always possible, or likely. --Jorge Luis BorgesFrom a beauty and a beast to a guardian angel cab driver, FABLES AND FICCIONES presents surreal and fanciful stories about cloud sculptors, Shakespeare-writing monkeys, and slipping sideways across parallel universes. This large STORY MINUTE selection offers a huge helping of the kind of quirky, imaginative, read-in-a-minute stories that could only come from the unique imagination of Carol Lay.STORY MINUTE told twelve-paneled tales designed to be read in about a minute.

It told fables- stories about relationships- twisty tales of crime and consequences, peeks into the competitive undercurrents within families- arched-eyebrow looks at humanitys self-destructive impulses- and scenes of the skirmishes between infallible fortune teller Madame Asgar and that less-than-competent devil, Nick.As the more loosely structured WAYLAY, it carried on Story Minute tropes, allowed Carol to comment on 9/11 (and the subsequent Bush Era), and to offer glimpses into her own world and life.[] Story Minutes are best sipped, not gulped.
