CONTENTS

  • Things I Didn't Know My Father Knew: An unusual visitor rolls into town one day under cover of a thick fog . . . just to touch base with someone he maybe once knew.
  • All We Know of Heaven: A small boy finds the answer to his and his father's dilemma in the legend of King Arthur and his mystical sword, Excalibur.
  • Tomorrow Eyes: A Runyonesque gambler discovers the strangest set of dice you ever saw being rolled on a cloth.
  • Some Burial Place, Vast and Dry: The lonely survivor of a long-ago space mission receives a visit from a hauntingly familiar UFO.
  • The Musician of Bremen, GA: Cal Williston, who can play the best version of 'Moonlight In Vermont' since Chet Baker teamed up with Gerry Mulligan.
  • Boxing Day: A small-town crook about to fall under the spell of London rediscovers his wife.
  • Keepsakes: PI. Koko Tate pays his mom a visit on Mother’s Day.
  • Too Short A Death: A modern-day poet meets the long-deceased Weldon Kees's greatest literary creation.
  • Eater: The cops at an off-the-beaten-track late-night precinct house have got more than they bargained for in one of the cells.
  • Sitting Pretty: An armchair fashioned out of the wood from the original cross provides a comfort of sorts down the ages.
  • Dark Times: Two old men tamper with the dark arts and open a gateway that threatens the destructions of the world.
  • Jewels in the Dust: A couple jaded with their life together are visited by their collective histories.
  • And, in Songs of Leaving, the imminent impact of a county-sized piece of space debris brings to the remnants of humanity a multitude of old friends to witness the fall of mankind.
