Award-Winning Author

Theodore Jerome Cohen’s first collection of unusual short stories met with such an unqualified success that he was persuaded to prepare a second set of equally enjoyable stories about the adventure we call “life.”

This book continues his penchant for writing tales that mix truth and fiction in ways even the author’s friends and family find difficult to detangle . . . tales about people with whom he’s worked or simply known, people who, for one reason or another, struck him as having a story to tell and from whom he learned something that has stayed with him through the years.

It’s their stories he wants to share with you in this book. Here you’ll find unusual stories about a violinist and his wife who escaped the death camp at Treblinka, about a man who, because of his impatience, interrupted a meeting of Roosevelt, Churchill, and De Gaulle, and about a young woman’s descent into the darkness of schizophrenia—stories vividly brought to life in this, the second collection of short stories by Theodore Jerome Cohen.

Here’s what the reviewers have to say:

I would be hard-pressed to select a favorite among the stories in this collection. Each leaves you wanting more. The remarkable diversity of the tales would have the reader believe each was authored by a different person. I look forward to reading anything authored by Theodore Cohen!


I could not put the book down…found many old friends and made many new friends. Great read. I really enjoyed the book and recommend it to others who want a good read.


Ted Cohen does it again. His second collection of short stories delivers a riverting set of stories that equals and even surpasses his first book of short stories. One of his best writings. Highly recommend.


There is no better way to spend an afternoon than sitting down and having a chat with a long lost friend. “The Road Less Taken: A Collection of Unusual Short Stories Book 2” is just like that, a conversation with a friend.


I dare you to find a more eclectic collection of stories anywhere today—anywhere—than you’ll find in Book 2 of The Road Less Taken. Five Stars all the way!

About The Author

Theodore Jerome Cohen is an award-winning author who has published more than ten novels—all but one of them mystery/thrillers—and two books of short stories. He also writes Young Adult (YA) novels under the pen name “Alyssa Devine” as well as illustrated children’s storybooks in his Stories for the Early Years series. During the course of his 45-year career he worked as an engineer, scientist, CBS Radio Station News Service (RSNS) commentator, private investigator, and Antarctic explorer. What he’s been able to do with his background is mix fiction with reality in ways that even his family and friends have been unable to unravel!

All of his novels and many of his short stories are based on real events, some from his own life, some ripped from the headlines. Of his writing in Death by Wall Street, for example, Gary Sorkin of Pacific Book Review said: “[S]imilar to the writing style of Michael Crichton and Tom Clancy, Ted Cohen adheres to short chapters laying out a mental storyboard in the reader’s mind. He possesses a writing style ideal for screenplay adaptation with visuals that can make for a good movie. Why wait for Hollywood – Death by Wall Street: Rampage of the Bulls is currently playing in a theater near you, the theater of your mind.”

Theodore J. (Ted) Cohen, PhD, holds three degrees in the physical sciences from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. In addition to his novels, he has published more than 450 papers, articles, columns, essays, and interviews in the fields of computers, communications, and electronics, and is a co-author of The NEW Shortwave Propagation Handbook from CQ Communications. Ted has been a licensed Radio Amateur since 1952; his callsign is N4XX. From December 1961 through early March 1962, he participated in the 16th Chilean Expedition to the Antarctic. The US Board of Geographic Names in October, 1964, named the geographical feature Cohen Islands, located at 63° 18′ S. latitude, 57° 53′ W. longitude in the Cape Legoupil area, Antarctica, in his honor. Ted served in the US Army Corps of Engineers from March 1966 through March 1968, leaving the Service with the rank of Captain.
