The Paper-Boy is about a man's obsession with people from the past and how this undermines his judgement and brings confusion to his life. Marty Fox and his wife Nancy set off from Winnipeg for a holiday around Lake of the Woods to recharge their flagging marriage. The first night works for Marty because of a bottle of Scotch, a radio, and because he can imagine that Nancy is a stranger. The following evening he thinks he recognizes two attractive women, twins, with a much older man. The women are Constance and Rosemary, who moved into Erwin Sommerfeld's house on Marty's Winnipeg paper route in the sixties - Constance as Sommerfeld's 16-year-old wife and Rosemary as a kind of bonus. As a paper-boy, Marty had fantasized over these good-looking girls. Now it all comes back. But does Sommerfeld have a "married" relationship with both sisters? Rain and high water follow Marty and Nancy who go with Sommerfeld and the twins to a river resort. What really happens to Sommerfeld there? The holiday becomes a nightmare, with strange consequences back in the city not only for Marty, but also for Nancy and Constance and Rosemary.

"Paperboy" tells the story as only an afternoon paperboy in rural America in the sixties can. Thousands of readers identified with the unique characters of Colby while reading "The Bridge." They grew to love Tommy and the band of boys, were entertained by their childish pranks, and touched by their generosity. In "Paperboy," change is coming to Colby. The shoe factory has sold and a hat factory is taking its place. A factory manager has been named and he's definitely not from Colby. There's an influx of interesting newcomers. The high school principal is also new to Colby. He must deal with teenage pregnancy, the snooping high school office secretary, and the Colby Curls rumor mill. He, too, has a mysterious past and uses it to his advantage. The pregnant teen and her auto-mechanic single mother aren't Colby natives either. Rumors about both abound. The mother has a past which touches the present, and eventually involves the entire town. Tommy and Booger, while delivering the "Colby Telegraph," discover that Colby's patriarch, Mr. Koch, has a heroic but classified history. While raking leaves for Mrs. Whitener, they learn the origin of her accent and how she got to Colby. It's not what most people think. Jupiter Storm, the town's primary purveyor of gossip, whose opinion always exceeds his knowledge, is perpetually annoying. But Tommy and Booger learn that Jupiter is a decorated World War II veteran. And when a threatening stranger appears on the scene, the entire town learns of Jupiter's unique but redeeming skill. How will Colby be different, and how will it be the same? About the Author Stan and his wife Debbie live in Southern Missouri where they raised three boys and a golden retriever. www.stancrader.com
