With deceptively spare prose, Glenn Blake has packed considerable depth, mystery, and sense of place into this debut collection of short stories.
These eight stories evoke the mysteries of nature and the human heart and the intersection between the two.
Blake's prose story-telling style is deceptively simple. He writes in a straightforward manner that belies the complexities of the human experience he is at the same time subtly presenting to his reader.
Glenn Blake's stories are ambitious, hard-edged, with much at stake. The starkness of the style is a reflection of the environs in which the stories of Drowned Moon are set... Drowned Moon is a dark, foreboding book—a drowned moon put into print... Each of these stories is tight, finely beveled and curt, eerie. The weight of what is not said is crushing, broods like the hot and damp petrochemical air... In Drowned Moon, Glenn Blake gives us a voice from a place most of us would not inhabit or visit, a place we'd avoid. Yet though we'd likely stay away from Chocolate Bay, such places aren't going away. They're fertile ground for fiction. The rules of engagement there are ancient, universal, brutal and pure.
