In his confident debut, Greg Bechtel offers ten charged stories about the impossible-turned-possiblesecrets, paranoia, sex, conspiracies, and magicas he effortlessly shatters the boundaries between speculative and literary fiction.
Boundary Problems vibrates on the edge of meaning, as carjackers, accidental gunrunners, and small-town cabbies struggle to wring meaning from the strange events that overtake them. Bechtel’s worlds of mystery and magic constantly challenge his characters’ pursuit of logical explanations. These compelling tales blur lines and push boundariesinto the surreal, into the playful, into the irresistible energy of uncertainty.
