Here Comes the Roar
The moon might really be a UFO. Someone you know has just stopped air
traffic on the entire East Coast. And those Air Force fighter jets won’t
stop crashing into that canyon.
Welcome to Here Comes the Roar, Dave Shaw’s inventive and magical
collection of events in the aftermath of attraction. These are the
stories after the love stories, when worlds collapse and grow again
around the wreckage and unforeseen consequences of passion. The men and
women in this prize-winning collection go fishing with an anarchist lost
in time, trespass on an Air Force base in their underwear, and face all
manner of travails. Most, somehow, emerge the better for their battles,
even though nobody has quite managed to eject in time.
The three stories and short novel in Here Comes the Roar blend
imagination and humor for readers in search of something bold.
“A captivatingly innovative collection of stories that lingers in the
mind.” —Marly Swick, Judge
