Starting today, Gilbert "Sam" Schriber
is going to be at Moma's Arcade in Lincoln to sign copies of his new
book, "Name Your Poison."
This is the third book Schriber has written. It is a
collection several short stories written in varying genres.
Schriber is a Lincoln native who has lived in and around this area
his entire life. At 69, he is married to his wife of 47 years,
Kathy, and they have two adult children, several grandchildren and

When he returned home from the trip, he sat down and began to
write. He turned out 10 short stories that became his first book,
appropriately titled "Campfire Tales."
Schriber said the completion of the first book opened a whole new
world for him, and he soon began working on his second, "Gone
Beaver." This is a novel about a young man who escapes from an
orphanage in the 1830s and heads west to become a mountain man.

Schriber recently spoke about his books and his particular style
"Of the three books I have written, about the only thing they
have in common is the 'down-homesy storytelling' kind of prose," he
said. "I make no excuses for the grammar or lack thereof. They are
stories to be enjoyed by almost anyone. In this last book, some are
fiction, some are not, some are adventure, some are murder-mystery
and some are romance."
Schriber will be at Moma's Arcade this evening (Friday) from 5 to
8 and again Saturday from 1 to 4 p.m.
