Featuring stories of the Oregon Coast. A group of backwoods types banquets on giant oysters – only to find later their rare find was priceless. An aged former Marine shoots the biggest elk ever seen in North America, dies, and is given a Viking funeral. A man whose libido reaches epic proportions whenever it thunders is with a beautiful woman when a great storm comes.
Five Star Review on Amazon By Glenn Rogers
An interesting collection of short stories with a cast of characters you won’t encounter in other collections. Tidemann creates characters that, in many cases, reflect the flaws of real people in real life, putting them in situations that are unexpected and thought provoking– and the ones that are completely fantastic provide a dose of comic relief. And though we may not like some of the characters he creates, there is plenty to like in this collection of short stories.
