    a peek at life through death, in all shapes and sizes

    Phoenix Tales by Gregory Banks is an eclectic collection of death and rebirth short stories. <BR/><BR/>These death stories come in all shapes and sizes. Among many other topics, there are stories centering around cloning, apocalyptic events, and voodooism. They show characters dealing with regrets and consequences, acting out revenge, cowering in fear, and even embracing the end of this life. Some stories are funny, and some are poignant. One story even rhymes. Another is told from the perspective of the dead person at his funeral. <BR/><BR/>And they're very good stories, filled with conflicts, packed with drama, exploring love and hate and joy and sorrow. Banks's character studies show how versatile he is -- his stories gave me bunches of new perspective on how people live with death.
