2 novellas with science fiction fantasy themes which are typical Mosley fare. They are both well written, easy and fast reading. Head of a Pin was more fantastic and shorter. Not nearly as out there as The Wave which is the only Mosley book I did not care for. The Gift of Fire is hopeful, positive and dare I say spiritual; the author seems to be in a good place, personally and this may portend a change in direction in his writing.
If you are not a Walter Mosley fan, this is not for you. You will be better served to start with one of the Ezekiel Rawlins mysteries. I recommend Black Betty or Devil in a Blue Dress.
