Brian Keene's short story collection TEQUILA SUNRISE is superb! A collection of previously published but long out of print work is a treasure for Keene fans and a great point to start for the Keene newbie. The namesake story shows Keene's ability to write outside of his comfort zone. Though there is a part that encompasses all of his 'mythos' into a few tantilizing paragraphs, the guts of the story really lie outside of Keene's normal genre writing. This is his attempt at fable writing and he pulls it off brilliantly. The remaining several stories don't beat off the path that much. They are all really good especially for their short lengths. There is a ghost story, a crack at bizzaro fiction and a really disturbing story dealing with child molestation and abuse. If you like Keene or just want to try him on for size this book is right up your alley. It's Keene at his best in short bursts. Though his recent short story collection JACKS MAGIC BEANS is also good, I like this collection a bit better overall.
