Recent Comments "Sabbath Night in the Church of the Piranha"

An excellent collection of stories by a master storyteller. These are the kinds of stories that require pause for reflection between each. Some (like the powerfully harrowing "Smugglers") are dark, gritty, almost harsh, but others (like "The Professor's Son", which I loved!) leave us uplifted and hopeful, even inspired. The collection is a fine mix of open-ended and closed-ended stories, dancing over and through morally complicated cultural issues with grace. Highly recommended!

I loved these stories. If you are looking for light hearted, do not look here, but if you enjoy a story that is enthralling, real, and at times a bit depressing, these are a must. Absolutely wonderful writing and story telling about tough topics.
