Hal Sisson, Local Author

Welcome to April, and hopefully spring! (Real spring, not calendar spring.) Enjoy this post 🙂

Hal Sisson was quite a guy.

After serving in the war as an armourer servicing guns and turrets, he came back to the Peace Country to be a lawyer and a judge.  That career provided plenty of fodder for another: writing books full of small-town humour.

After retiring from the bar and from the Peace, Sisson continued writing mysteries and action/adventure novels featuring “old fart sleuths”.  Then came an anthology of burlesque skits, and then non-fiction accounts about drugs and the events of 9/11.

Many of these books are available through local libraries or Amazon:

  • A Fowler View of Like
  • Coots, Codgers, and Curmudgeons
  • Garage Sale of the Mind
  • The Big Bamboozle
  • Caverns of the Cross
  • A Fat Lot of Good
  • Maquiladora Mayhem
  • You Should Live So Long
  • Potshots
  • Modus Operandi 9/11

However, if you would like an instant sample of the author’s writing to find out what you’d be in for with one of his books, you might try Sisson’s self-penned obituary.

Or, check out Hal Sisson speaking about his research into 9/11.

If you know of any Peace Country personalities who should be featured here, please email townspirit@hotmail.com, or leave a comment on any post.  Thanks for your input!
