Yet for all the differences in style, tone and pacing, the themes are indistinguishable because they're universal. Winter Light by Henry Mitchell, Deadly Nightshade by Peter Lingard, Presence by Michael Barry, and The Tree by Dr. Robert Clifford all deal with some aspect of love and loss. Rosie the Riviter by Chris Cooke reflects on changes in family dynamics. Rowson's The Refugee offers political intrigue through the wide eyes of a young man. Grey Matter by John Malone looks at the vagaries of dating in the twenty first century and the ongoing mystery of female sexuality. Michael Mohr's coming-of-age Tightrope, set along the California-Mexico border, and Tiburcio's Treasure by G. Loyd Helm, set in the Mojave Desert, both locales steeped in folklore, offer a window into how crazy guys can be when they're drinking.
In the end, this collection was as feel-good as the stories by women authors. I recommend reading the collection back-to-back. Let's hope Alfiedog offers us another round of his and hers stories this year.
The subtitle “Short Reads for Lazy Days” is apt because some of the stories are vignettes but all of them will leave you with something to think about which I take to be the object of the exercise.
There are also stories with a twist in the tale and I will leave it to you to find out which ones they are.
