"In The Merger, Dr. Frankl proves he knows the political anatomy of hospital administrators as well as he knew the physical anatomy of his patients. He understands that in politics, too, a disease can be insidiously destroying the inner workings even while the facade still looks fine..."

"...The Merger is a timely medical drama written by a well credentialed cardiologist who entertained me as he frightened me as I moved forward page by page into areas of medicine that have been in the dark for too long..."

~ Harris Cohen, Author of Rat Tales

"...Frankl turns over the rock of modern medicine to expose what crawls beneath. In The Merger, Bill Frankl portrays a power struggle within hospitals that perverts the Hippocratic Oath from "do no harm" to homicide...."

Romance and the Vending Machine by novelist William S. Frankl, M.D.

Reviews of Romance and The Vending Machine



"...This imaginatively conceived collection embraces all the elements of successful short-short stories: the brevity required to engage the reader's interest in a short time span, and the inclusion of a limited number of characters, a single setting, and an astounding disclosure..."

"...This slim volume of more than 40 short stories is a keeper, something to have with you when waiting in line or for those last few minutes before turning in, or just to savor, one or two more stories at a time."

~ Jane Friedman, Writer's Digest Managing Editor

"...Frankl's knowledge of human nature gained during his years as a clinical cardiologist is as evident as his skills as a writer. If these stories were Scotch whiskey, they would be single malt. "

"...Frankl is a master of juxtaposing the commonplace with the bizarre. The occult stories are too good at giving one a jolt of reality unsought and unexpected...."

Nightmare Worlds by novelist William S. Frankl, M.D.

Reviews of Nightmare Worlds



"...Frankl kept me off balance in "Nightmare Worlds" as I tried and failed to get ahead of this tale as I peeled away each page hoping it would not end, but it did and not the way I wanted it to. Nightmares seldom do."

The Cyber Patient by novelist William S. Frankl, M.D.

Reviews of The Cyber Patient



"...This is not Dr. Kildare or the gang at E.R. Doctor Robinson holds the key to much higher stakes as the FBI, CIA and Special Forces units' battle known and unknown entities to save a man who should never have been born."

~ Harris Cohen, Author of Rat Tales
