Rutherford's collection of short stories are varied from a story
Rutherford's collection of short stories are varied from a story about the H.L. Hunley during the civil war to a futuristic sci-fi yarn about the Halcyon a fictitious boat used for hunting giant whale like creatures that live under the sand of an enormous desert. The Peripatetic Coffin and Camp Winnesaka were my 2 favorite stories. The other stories such as A Mugging and The Broken Group were compelling. The Saint Anna story was also very good reminiscent of The Terror by Dan Simmons. My only complaint is I wish Rutherford tied up the endings to some of these stories a little better. Some of the stories build to climax that just never really happens and left me feeling a little cheated. None the less I still recommend this collection of short stories and I look forward to Rutherford's next work.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
