This beautiful collection of short stories continues to collect praise, proving Tara L. Masih a master of her craft:

While I would normally sit down and finish a book of short stories in one sitting, I found that impossible with this one. Some stories were so heavy and so intense I knew I had to break them up. It’s like I needed time away to savor and ingest each story.

Where The Dog Star Never Glows by Tara L. Masih:

When is a river or an ocean or a cabin in the woods more than just what it appears to be on the outside? When these locales are channeled through the storytelling talents of award-winning author Tara L. Masih.

Whether it's the dusty prairie tying together two centuries in "Ghost Dance," the fears that accompany pregnancy that are further inflamed by the heat of a Mexico border town in "The Dark Sun" or a future as dark as the coal mine the narrator seeks to distance himself from in "Where the Dog Star Never Glows," Masih deftly creates living, breathing characters from the places she describes.

This anthology of 17 short stories showcases Masih's superb talents at creating lush, lyrical and detailed worlds for her narrators to inhabit. Included here are nine award-nominated stories, two of which were nominated for literature's high honor of the Pushcart Prize for short fiction. In 2010, Where the Dog Star Never Glows achieved a further accolade for the sum of its parts by becoming a Best Books Award finalist from USA Book News.

Delve into a world of imagery and literary prose. A place where magic and emotion both run high in exotic lands. Into a world...Where the Dog Star Never Glows.
