"C. Gregory Thompson's short stories are sharp and original
slices cut from slightly warped, off-kilter worlds where the
fantastical and magical often collides with the hard-bitten truth of
daily life. It tastes fresh and fearless.”
 Mark Haskell Smith  
“…the kind of profile of character and place we relish."  Cowboy
“The work of C. Gregory Thompson invites you into
a world whose words and phrases will linger long after you finish
reading. His characters are people you will recognize and
remember, like that guy you met in an airport bar one rainy
afternoon, or your favorite aunt who mysteriously disappeared
and your mother claims never existed at all. Thompson's stories
burn and sizzle in all the best ways."
