Abstract: This thesis consists of seven short stories entitled: Back Country, The Candy-Store Job, A Rock tor Ben Louis, The Seduction, Alive in Any Sea, Charlie, and The Passing. The title is taken from the last story because some of the major themes developed in the previous stories are present in it. The stories fall generally into two categories. A Rock for Ben Louis, The Seduction, and Charlie are basically character studies. The remainder are situational with the emphasis on plot and action. Most of them, except for The Passing, are experimental in narrative technique and do not attempt so much to tell a story as to equate the proper style and method to the idea of the character or the situation.
