We begin to justify our casual overview of pain and suffering by portraying ourselves as do gooders incapacitated by the inexorable forces of poverty famine and warI have tried to be as varied as possible during our uarantine I must admit a dep disappointment with these stories The first collection of Shepherd's that I encountered well over 15 years ago really affected me with their weird almost gothic approach to the destruction of the World Trade Center and the subseuent War on Terror I haven't found anything since which approximated that effect Salvador and RR both capture that 1980s arrogance in our unrealized war for the hearts and minds of Central America The other stories feature exotic locales a smattering of sex and an encounter with menace I just wanted 25 stars

I tried to read this collection before and loved the first two stories but not the third and gave up on the fourth Not sure why I picked it up again but I read the novella “RR” first and then had to read everything else in the book “RR” is the best novella I have read in recent times a masterpiece like “Heart of Darkness” and “Death in Venice”; this one has it all beautiful surreal prose a vision of a future war that comments on Vietnam and our involvement in Guatemala and reads like Philip K Dick vision a war fought with psychics drugs stories within stories demons and spirits wild children dark humor an all around masterpiece “The man who painted the Dragon Griaule” seems to me a forebear of the type of work Jeff Vandermeer and China Mieville have written in recent years and fans of them should read it The rest of the book is a mix of pulpy content other dimensions ghosts trapped aliens brujos drug visions Nazis mixed with great prose and character writing and as much potential for cheese as there seems to be in these stories they veer away from that and have the tone of surreal menace Absolutely great collectionShepard has finally won me over
