Through Shattered Glass

David B. Silva is a damned fine writer. Through Shattered Glass is filled with emotional, imaginative tales. Silva explores the depths of loss and regret and fragility with grace in these stories.

"The Calling" and "Dry Whiskey" are among my favorites. It's a fine collection, and well worth your time.
