Out of the Woods

The author of the “quixotic and engaging” Missing Mr. Wingfield (BlueInk Review), which Foreword Reviews called “an eye-opening look at the universality of regret,” brings you fourteen short stories which weave the fabulous with the mundane.


Three sons send their father to Valhalla in his old jalopy. A rusted robot waits on the stone wall by a child’s bus stop. An undertaker is one coin short at the river Styx.


Fathers and the daughters they find, girls and the dogs they’ve loved, and a woman from Kansas with a cyclone in her heart—find out what happens when people go too far, love too hard, and take too much as they make their way Out of the Woods.
