 About the Book 

“…Strasser is a master of the form…” – Jack Dann, author of The Memory CathedralWatch as the sands take shape…A desert wind whispers of memory and regretAn army marches high in the golden skiesA traveller grows tired of seeing the end of the worldAMore“…Strasser is a master of the form…” – Jack Dann, author of The Memory CathedralWatch as the sands take shape…A desert wind whispers of memory and regretAn army marches high in the golden skiesA traveller grows tired of seeing the end of the worldA man no longer wants to be humanA people run eternally from the rising sunIn this evocative collection of short fiction Dirk Strasser shapes eighteen storiessuffused by the sands of loss, understanding and redemption.“Dirk Strasser is a master practitioner of what is, to my mind, the perfect form – the short story. This complex and intelligent collection showcases his long-honed subtlety and control, offering such gems as the haunting and delicately structured Waiting for the Rain, and the incisive Watching the Soldiers. Like all the brightest stories, these leave an indelible after-image in the minds’ eye, through which you must ever after view the mundane world.”– Isobelle Carmody, author of The Kingdom of the Lost and The Obernewtyn Chronicles
