SEE "GALLERY OF COVERS" FOR THIS BOOK (below)
This novel has been re-issued by Simon & Schuster as an e-book.
Also available as paperback.
Somewhat controversial, Too Easy got many very admiring reviews, for example,
Kinky Friedman (a well-known novelist) said it's "so well-written it's frightening."
Too Easy was translated into German, French, and Dutch. It's perhaps best described in a cluster of words: suspense, romantic, erotic, intense, adultery, criminal.
(Note: this is the US cover. Simon & Schuster put a couple on the cover, so the Europeans did the same. Note, it's not a story about a couple, it's about three people:
Robert Saunders, Anne Saunders, Kathy Becker.)
"A witty and entertaining look at our dark sides."--Kirkus
Too Easy had many passionate covers--see Gallery of Covers.
Gallery also has jacket copy and reviews.

A JON DAK ADVENTURE
"What God abandoned, these defended,
And saved the sum of things for pay."
A. E. Housman
"Raymond Chandler: a Tale of Two Detectives".... this short article explains
that both of my detective novels started with similar questions,
well, I wonder what Raymond Chandler would do with Virginia Beach…
I wonder what Raymond Chandler would do with Manhattan.
"AMERICAN DREAMS" IS NOW IN AMAZON/KINDLE.
Perhaps American literature's most successful experimental novel,
American Dreams is a kaleidoscopic look at the USA.
If you like the offbeat, the surreal, the literary, the highly original,
please check out reviews. AD might be for you.
"Price has written a funny, stylistically innovative novel that includes
everything a popular novel should have: romance, sex, adultery,
crime, religion, sickness, death and even Texas." --Publishers Weekly
And for dessert
A WITTY SATIRICAL POEM
I casually claim that Theoryland is the best long poem in American literature.
In truth, there is not much competition in this category.
Theoryland is a mini-epic in five cantos satirizing the faddish thinking,
crazed competition, and reckless sophistry-making found in our universities.
It's fun. You can actually read it a second time and have more fun than the first time.
Collectors of literary exotica might want to order this little book (Amazon).
That would be appreciated. But you needn't do so to read the poem.
Theoryland is readily available on the Internet.
For example, it's the 7th item on this site
(and features a recording of the poet reading Cantos One and Two).
In the rooms the critics come and sneer:
my intertext is all veneer.
I may have sinned, my closure fated,
Who knew this jargon was two months dated?
Also available: a non-fiction book about problems in K-12 education:
THE EDUCATION ENIGMA
What happened to American Education
Ever wonder why our public schools are mediocre? This short book will tell you.
It's a collection of the best portions of my best articles and essays circa 2010.
Available on Amazon. Reviews will give you a better sense of the contents.
Note: the original concept was to use portions of articles with the links at the end. Some of those links are now defunct. However, what's inside the book remains quite a good read.
PS: Seriously, folks, what the Education Establishment has done to our public schools
is a crime. Everybody should be angry at these scoundrels.

Saving K-12 is coming in November 2017. More info here.
