A Garden Fed by Lightning by Marshall Moore

By Marshall Moore

Marshall Moore’s brief fiction is propelled by way of a scathing wit and a depressing mind's eye, and he doesn't shrink back from taking readers down roads which are much less traveled and infrequently even mapped. within the name tale, a con guy cons a beguiling con artist… or does he? In “Grape Night,” a brand new arrival in Hong Kong enjoys the pleasures and terrors of a wine-tasting get together with traveling gods from the Greek pantheon. In “Underground,” the minotaurs who secretly keep an eye on city existence welcome a brand new member in their bloodthirsty elite. And in “Cambodia,” a country’s genocidal prior and its cosmopolitan current collide atop a ruined temple. In A backyard Fed by way of Lightning, as in his prior short-story collections, Moore spans a number of genres of fiction and subverts them all.
