THE CHANGING TIDE   
Short stories

By Lewis J. Beilman III

The Changing Tide includes ten short stories and a novella.  The works represent several visions of a changing United States and feature characters who either embrace or reject the changes they experience.  Issues addressed include immigration, racial and ethnic divisions, and sexual identity, among others.  For example, in “Amigos,” a former Connecticut factory worker is on suicide watch in a hospital after his wife’s death. His interaction with a Peruvian janitor helps him to sweep away his anger and bigotry.  Another story, “Movement,” which is featured in the 2018 Adelaide Voices Literary Award Anthology, focuses on an interracial family that becomes lost while visiting Brooklyn on the Fourth of July.  A close call in an unfamiliar neighborhood causes the family members to assess their views on authority and race relations.  And, in “Nude Beach,” a young woman indulges her boyfriend’s desire to visit Miami’s Haulover Beach on his birthday.  There, a memory and a chance occurrence spark her to question her sexuality.  Some of the stories reach firm conclusions, while others end enigmatically—but all are intended to appeal to a reader’s sense of empathy without being maudlin or dogmatic.  Of the eleven works in the collection, four have been published in literary journals, one has been published as a novella, and one is in the 2018 Adelaide Voices Literary Award Anthology.

Lewis J. Beilman III lives in Hamden, Connecticut, with his family, dog, and two cats.  He writes fiction in his spare time.  His stories have appeared inAdelaide Literary Magazine, ArLiJo, Reed Magazine, and other literary publications.  He is a former first prize winner of the Fred R. Shaw Poetry Contest.

Outside of writing, Lewis enjoys reading, playing soccer, and volunteering in his community.  He has a law degree from the University of Maine Law School and a bachelor’s degree in political science from Sacred Heart University.
