Description - Blue Yonders, Grateful Pies and Other Fanciful Feasts by Ken Scholes

Return to Ken Scholes' Imagination Forest in this third collection of quirky, off-beat stories. In these 17 tales, Scholes displays a deft ability at smart storytelling and savvy, poetic prose. Here in the Imagination Forest, you never know who - or what - you'll come across."Scholes's third Imagination Forest collection (after Diving Mimes, Weeping Czars, and Other Unusual Suspects) continues exploring the limits of speculative fiction in 17 short stories whose genres include playful fantasy and SF as well as edge-of- your-seat suspense. Scholes revels in the offbeat and surreal, marrying otherworldliness with very real human fears and concerns, and his stories are all the richer for it....The collection has a distinctive rhythm, with the novella-length standout piece "A Symmetry of Serpents and Doves" bookended by shorter vignettes. Scholes's work is considerably inventive, and this collection showcases his versatility as a writer." --Publishers Weekly"Ken Scholes is a powerhouse. The stories he flows into the world are lightning strikes of wonder and emotion that will change the way you see life, love, despair, and grief. --J.A. Pitts, author of Black Blade Blues"Stunning and a delight to read . . . [Scholes] will make you think and he will paint pictures in your mind that will remain long after you close the anthology." --Mary Robinette Kowal, author of The Glamourist Histories"Ken Scholes mixes wildly beautiful imagery with the sharply visceral; the profoundly mythic with the profanely human. These keenly observed stories of faith, love, and loss will resonate in your bones." --Tina Connolly, author of Ironskin
