Dr. Richard Kellogg, professor emeritus of psychology at Alfred State, is the author of a story appearing in a new book for sports fans titled “All American Sports Stories” (Airship 27, 2016).
Available on the Amazon website, the fiction anthology contains exciting stories by five different authors, which deal with the sports of auto racing, boxing, football, baseball, and hunting. All of the nostalgic tales in the collection are set in the United States during the 1930s and reflect the large role that sports have played in the history of our country.
Kellogg's contribution to the volume is a poignant vignette about deer hunting titled “Uncle Bob's Browning.” The story is a bittersweet memoir of a youth who learns valuable lessons about life when he becomes lost in the deep woods on a hunting expedition with his favorite uncle.
Kellogg is the author of four books about the legendary Sherlock Holmes, and the creator of a popular series of books featuring boy detective Barry Baskerville. The most recent entry in this series for children, also available at the Amazon website, is titled “Barry Baskerville Traps a Thief.”
