Rebecca Roland’s “In Silence She Says Much,” is a tale of Maris, a siren who swears off luring men to their deaths for love. In order to hide her power, Maris does not speak and the villagers believe she is a mute. She and Demetri raise a family in peace until shipwrecked sailors plunder the village. Maris must then choose between doing nothing or saving her family and the village folk by revealing and using her terrible power.
Brent Smith’s “The Secrets of Tea” was a tale I enjoyed as well. The ending particularly worked for me.
Jennifer Winston’s “Remember When” affected me strongly as my father was a victim of dementia and Alzheimer’s. Her story shows in an unusual manner the cost entailed in this terrible memory stealing fate.
But Bob Sojka’s “Don’t Forget,” was by far the most enjoyable and memorable story. I have to admit that I am partial to apocalyptic tales, and Sojka’s definitely fits that bill. Not only does he craft a believable setting of Earth destroyed by a natural cataclysm, but his brilliant use of jargon that shows the regression of the English language, thus revealing the regression of human society, was not only realistic, but unbelievably easy to understand. I have never seen this technique used in such an authentic and understandable manner as in Sojka’s tale.
Passages is definitely worth buying in either trade paperback or Kindle.
