On the Banks of the River of HeavenBook - 2010
On the Banks of the River of Heaven presents fourteen stories byRichard Parks, an "unrepentant storyteller," according to Locus Magazine .In his third collection, you'll find stories about a ghoul with an identitycrisis; a girl who can be anyone she wants except herself; a woman from heavenand a man very much from earth; gardening tips from hell; ten aspects of agoddess all searching for one wayward husband, and many other thrilling wonders. With his light touch and imaginative storytelling, Parks takes readers intothe past as well as the future, to lands foreign as well as nearby, and frommatters sublime to ones familiar (but never trivial or predictable). One of themost versatile fantasists of his generation, for Parks it is never style overthe substance (or the other way around) -- it is always a seamless meldingof both.
