The Sonoran Desert in the American Southwest is a place of extremes and contrasts, of beauty and death, of independent spirits and lost souls, of fresh starts and exiles.
Three short stories, three different genres, all set in the Sonoran Desert, each with characters in exile of one form or another. One author with a unique perspective and voice.
Solid, solid, solid. A story that's fairly simple and straightforward on the surface, but with some complex layers of depth. Tightly written, brilliant characterization. Only suggestion I have for improvement would be to add vampires. (Okay, just kidding.)
