The stories in Impossibilia gave me a wonderful return on my investment.
Bouquet of Flowers in a Vase, by Van Gogh is a unique time travel story. If I was given one word to describe the story, I'd use Passion. Love, death, loss, and rebirth, the highs and lows of human life flow throughout these pages. All set against the backdrop of the vibrant, mesmerizing, and compelling paintings of Van Gogh.
Spirit Dance is our very first introduction to the Heroka--not your everyday full-moon, bloodthirsty shapeshifters. As ancient Indian legends tell, these shifters are quite happy to live and let live. Just don't provoke them, you will not like what happens.
Going Down to Lucky Town tells us the story of a con-man with an unusual gift. Pursuing a streak of luck around Ontario, he discovers that one of the loves of his life has died, leaving his other love in the not-so-tender hands of the System. He tries to use his 'gift' to protect his daughter, but his past refuses to leave him alone. Will he win or lose?
This collection concludes with the opening chapter of Wolf at the End of the World--Doug's first novel about the Heroka. I'm waiting, not so patiently, for the next one.
Gambling your time and money on these stories will return so much more than you invested.
