on Aug. 11, 2011 :
Lake People and Other Speculative Tales is a collection of short stories that are all so drastically different that it's really quite surprising that they were all written by one person. From the writing styles to the narrative voices to the plots themselves there is so much variety within this book that you're almost guaranteed to find something you like.
The title story, 'Lake People' is without question the best of the book. The pacing is perfect, the story is beautiful and the mythology is well crafted. This story alone makes it worth buying this book. It speaks wonderfully to the universe giving you exactly what you need, when you need it, even if you yourself don't know what you're looking for. A few other favorites in this collection were 'Ten Gallons a Whore" and "Hallyhee, Cried the Trees."
