Collection of science fiction and fantasy stories from an award-winning writer

Aurora Award Finalist. Short fiction collection that contains an award winner and an award finalist.

The people we meet in Impossiblia are like any of us. They have secrets...fears...desires. Things they keep hidden. Things they keep locked away. Or try to. Only their things are a little...different.

A dead wife that won't leave.
A wolf with a past.
The secret to being the luckiest man alive.

In "Bouquet of Flowers in Vase, by van Gogh," remote viewing drives a search through the past for lost masterpieces. An ex-CIA agent, haunted by the presence of his dead wife, falls in love with a beautiful remote viewer with her own secret. But can viewing the past change the present?

Cree Indian legends, a love triangle, a covert government agency, and shape shifters collide in the award-winning "Spirit Dance," described in Challenging Destiny as "...a vivid and wonderfully written tale about Native Canadian spirits, in the vein of Thomas King."

In "Going Down to Lucky Town," an itinerant gambler chases a streak of luck across the country, while trying to win back the love of his daughter. The secret he finds forces him into the gamble of his life for the highest stakes of all: his daughter's life.

And through all the stories, these characters share one more thing beyond what they hold inside. In the decisions they face, in the choices they make, they do what they do out of love. Lost love, found love, the love of their child. But love.

So maybe they aren't that different from us after all.
