Fifth entry in an anthology photo series. Short fiction, memoir and poetry on an autumn theme.
The work in this thin volume is highly personal and touches upon family, nature, good times and bad. There’s a nice variety of approaches to the theme. There were a couple of real standouts. “A Prepper’s Dream” by Mary Garica is a short mystery with paranormal elements, “The Autumn Dance” by Casey Fry is an odd, sad story that left me with many questions. And the poem “Joy of Family” offers snapshots from a large family gathering celebrating longstanding relationships and new arrivals.
Autumn is my favorite season and this anthology captures its spirit.
