Tales from Pleasant Grove
Steven L. Peck, author
Steven L. Peck has created a breathtaking collection of short stories, harnessing the winds of a wild creativity with gale-force unpredictability. This book is a wonder and a marvel. The imaginative breadth and speculative depth available here brings to life dragons, fairies, witches, demons, and ghost, all set within a western landscape that in its own way proves just as amazing and other worldly as the fantastic elements at play within Peck's work. "At times, however, in certain eras and epochs, the great astral typhoons bend toward the earth as they reinforce and leverage our planet’s own placid airy streams into new configurations and confrontations. Beware! Or, Rejoice! For impossibilities become certainties, and chance and necessity begin their awkward and riotous dance, the outcome of which no choreographer can presage."
