Recommended for: everyone
Read in May, 2007

A vital and energetic collection, full of inventiveness and outsized characters. Ruland takes conventional genre material--mobsters, fairy tales, Western desperadoes--and knowingly spins high literature out of it. Violence is often at the center of these tales, most harrowingly in "Red Cap," a powerful war story. Look to this collection for fresh, precise writing and propulsive forward motion.
