The stories in Drowned Moon are set in Southeast Texas, where the Old and the Lost Rivers meet and empty into the bay. This unique geographic location, with its unpredictable waters, its sinking swamps, its bayous and sloughs, provides a haunting landscape for Glenn Blake's charactersJessie in "Old River," searching for stability in the aftermath of a hurricane; Hannah in "Open Season," trying to save her doves from an unusual birthday gift; or Drew in "Chocolate Bay," raising his son in a house on a peninsula, isolated from the rest of town. Blake's stories proclaim the lives of those who "find themselves awash in their own worlds, adrift in their own livespeople who salvage what they can of their hopes and dreams from the encroaching tides."
