Stories from the Fall of the Empire
An excellent book of short stories written from 2000-2011. More
"Harvey Havel has a strength as a contemporary writer which is unique - the ability to combine a subtle minimalism with the complexity of a Jorge Luis Borges, all the while holding the attention of readers from any walk of life. His diversity range is also astounding. As a voracious reader, I am not easily impressed, particularly by debut novels or collections of short stories, but there is a Magical Realism here which perhaps escapes even that categorization. If one were to combine Shel Silverstein with Raymond Radiquet, these would perhaps be stories that might emerge. Easy on the eyes, potent for the brain, this is material that promises a lasting future and deserves a good look"
