Robert Dodds is a master of the dark, rich, multi-layered story. From the expansive desert spaces of Arizona, to the internal workings of the most fragile human mind, Doddss stories are packed with subtle twists and turns. The opening novella, Rattlesnake. is a gothic inspired tale of torment and manipulation. The accompanying thirteen stories illuminate, with gentle humor, painful human concerns. Ranging from domestic unease in England, to illusion and disillusion in Latin and North America, these stories are written with a sparse and cinematic vision that make them quite unlike any other short story collection.
