He also is the publisher and creative director of The New Knickerbocker Quarterly Magazine. His first complete work of fiction, Sayville Tales, was published in 2018. In the tradition of The Canterbury Tales, Sayville Tales is comprised of more than a dozen stories told by modern-day passengers on a railroad journey. From a review on Amazon of Sayville Tales: "Lawrence Jay Switzer's book, Sayville Tales, is astute, sharp, and magnanimous...like canvases and rooms, seen from within the same interior, Switzer guides us into a world that we seldom allow ourselves time enough to discover."
