Unanimous Praise for New Fiction, Howling at the Moon, Published by Mount Parnassus Press
Author Steven Mayfield has won accolades for his new collection of short fiction, an eclectic blend of the whimsical and the poignant; the absurd and the inescapably real.
Steven Mayfield’s book begins with “Food Chain” when an innocent motorist is hilariously ensnared in an inescapable web camouflaged as a Manhattan traffic jam. “Reliquary”
“A superbly wrought set of tales as beguiling as a midnight serenade.”
- Kirkus Discoveries
“The common themes of ‘Howling at the Moon’ seem to be human vulnerability and, ironically, the power that vulnerability can unleash…Mayfield shines especially in the stories about marriage.”
- U.S. Review of Books
- “Mayfield brings a magnificent range of both emotion and intellect to these stories.”
- Barbara Herrick; author of The Blackberry Tea Club
“Mayfield doesn't shy away from writing about complex topics that span the spectrum of the human experience. He embraces the challenge and offers us a rare collection of work that proves he has the ability to observe the small details in life that tell us everything about who we are."
Thanh Tan, Idaho Public Television
