Border Run & Other Stories

Sit back and savor this mesmerizing collection of short fiction set in multiple eras and locales. Two sisters hike a mountainside in South Korea, ascending to another level of sibling intimacy as they descend. A weary detective weathers a mid-life crisis of faith in everything that is familiar and known—including his own integrity as a man of the law. A dying grandmother tasks her grandson with distributing her massive collection of shoes, with the caveat that each pair must be matched to a suitable new owner.

These fourteen stories provide tantalizing glimpses of death and its impact on those left behind, the tedious grind of day-to-day living and the promise of escape through the magical and supernatural. Though the characters in each story are encapsulated by their own unique worldview, they are a composite reflection of the overarching experience of life lived, in all times and places.
