A Book of Revelations

This collection of short stories offers a variety of tales about different people, places and eras. About the only thing they have in common is that the lead characters in these stories are almost never who they appear to be. The story-telling style is decidedly narrative. This will niggle at those who object to a writing style that “tells” rather than “shows” but it suits the stories very well. More

What It Looks Like

Eli is the son of a policeman and a forensic scientist. His parents clearly care for him, perhaps a little too much, but don't really understand what the young man is going through. They certainly don't understand Eli's choice in boyfriends. Rob is almost the exact opposite of Eli. Abused as a child, Rob is very much from the wrong side of the tracks. He has had several run-ins with the law, and even spent a few years in prison. But what Rob does to Eli, as well as what Eli does for Rob, are things almost nobody would understand. More
