Like an interesting doorway into a secret inner garden, Daniela Norris' stories invite you into a rich experience of strange and fascinating personal culture. Before you know it, you find yourself on the other side of familiar boundaries of this life and what is beyond.
Collecting Feathers: Tales From The Other Side offers a wonderful collection of stories set in various parts of the world and with a subtle otherworldly feel. For aficionados of the 'fantasmagoriana' short story brought up to date, this beautifully crafted collection is enhanced by those essential ingredients of a skilful use of language, evocative descriptions and read-on factor.

Despite the title, and repeated motifs of death and the other side; Collecting Feathers is actually a collection of tales more about the journey to get to the end point of crossing over, than death itself. Each of the short stories in this book is completely different from the last, and yet also curiously similar. This variation forms a powerful reflection of the book's major theme: the vast range of human journeys through life.
