"Lucky Alan" by Jonathan Lethem
In Lethem's third collection of stories you will find how humor and poignancy work in harmony, humans strive desperately for connection, and words find themselves misaligned to deeds.
I am a fulltime freelance writer/journalist/photographer with over 50 books published in many genres, including historical, military, Science fiction, thriller novels, even a romance. I consider myself an adventure writer. I have traveled the world having adventures--such as dogsledding in the Arctic; solo kayaking the Inside Passage; solo-canoeing the Yukon; solo-sailing the Caribbean; diving for pirate treasure. . . I've been a combat correspondent, professional rodeo clown and bronc rider, pro kickboxer, archaeologist, college instructor. . . I was a police homicide detective and am a veteran of U.S. Army Special Forces (the Green Berets).
Master storyteller Charles Sasser's newest book, Sanctuary, is a moment-by-moment roller-coaster ride through the fight between good and evil. When a crew of space explorers return to Earth after a millennia of absence to see if the planet is inhabitable, they face peril compounded by peril when they become stranded and must combat the very essence of evil. They must fight their way through the very depths of Hell in order to reach their ultimate goal - Sanctuary. Sasser's characters drew me into their personal lives, some identifying with my brave side, and others bringing out the insecurities and cowardice that lives within us all. From the opening of the first paragraph to the last page of the book, the action never stops. Sasser doesn't give you a chance to catch your breath with one action scene compounding on top of the next. Try as I might, I could not put this book down until I finished every word. When I closed the book and contemplated the incredible imagination it must have taken to create such a terrible yet wonderful place, I knew I'd experienced a small portion of the mind of a genius. Buy this book and be prepared to spend a sleepless night, maybe two.
