|A Wonderful Voice For the Genre,|
You will be missed!
Sadly this is purported to be
last book due to his demise. I only use
the purported since I still see books by V.C. Andrews and she has been deceased
for years. This is a collection of Jay Lake
short stories. I have made it known in
the past, I am not a fan of short stories.
This book was not an exception.
I liked several of the stories very much and then they were over. There were others I didn't like at all. I would prefer to remember Jay Lake
for his outstanding trilogy on Copper Downs. Jay Lake
I would suggest reading Green and Endurance and Kalimpura. All three books deal with empowering women and defying the status quo. There is a body of literature that suggests that if women were in charge there would be fewer wars. I don’t think this is just due to the heighten sensibilities of women, nor do their lack of interest in macho posturing. I do think there would be less conflict because when they do throw down the gauntlet, they follow it with massive overkill. Green exemplifies that role with her temper and actions.
This book is worth reading as it shows another side of
. It shows some whimsy and in some cases a
depth of creativity that might be beyond bizarre. Jay Lake

This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
