Overview

On the Banks of the River of Heaven presents fourteen stories by Richard Parks, an "unrepentant storyteller," according to Locus Magazine. In his third collection, you'll find stories about a ghoul with an identity crisis; a girl who can be anyone she wants except herself; a woman from heaven and a man very much from earth; gardening tips from hell; ten aspects of a goddess all searching for one wayward husband, and many other thrilling wonders.

With his light touch and imaginative storytelling, Parks takes readers into the past as well as the future, to lands foreign as well as nearby, and from matters sublime to ones familiar (but never trivial or predictable). One of the most versatile fantasists of his generation, for Parks it is never style over the substance (or the other way around) — it is always a seamless melding of both.

I love reading the stories in Richard Parks' collection. Each one is somehow fantastical and magical and yet . . . carries a truth that is worth considering. I can't think of a more delightful way to spend 15 minutes than a careful reading of one of the stories in 'On the Banks of the River of Heaven.' A good place to be.
