This collection includes four stories set in the southern and western United States in the mid-20th and early 21st centuries.
"After the Flood" spans almost a half century encompassing two major floods on the Mississippi delta. With changes in time and changes in point of view, the reader sees events from unique vantage points. Is Charles Dowdy insane, or is the apparition that informs his actions real?
"Seeds of Insurrection" explores a futuristic vision (not so far in the future and, perhaps, entirely plausible) of an America occupied by hostile forces. Set on the high plains of north Texas, the reader has a stadium view of the battle to determine the future of the free world. What really matters in the struggle for liberty?
