About this title


Dark Tales to Light the Way presents an excursion into the darker regions of the mind and explores some of the more pathological aspects of its functioning. Indeed, the author develops characters that gradually emerge as distinct and memorable, perhaps even unforgettable, individuals whose thought processes and feelings are described often in enthralling detail and become integral facets of the essential plots of each tale. On occasion, the stories visit unsettlingly adult themes. These, however, are treated with delicate regard for the sensibilities of the reader and unfold without gratuitous sensationalism--but simultaneously describe each situation with a clarity that brings the events alive in the imagination. Bestowed, by all appearances, with an uncanny understanding of the mental workings that motivate human behavior, the author displays an equally dazzling ability to describe these phenomena via the written word. From eight-year-old Phoebe Oats, in story one, who demonstrates an adult-like quality for defying the pleas of individuals much her elder (even a guardian angel), to Carl Horton, in story two, whose psychological attributes can baffle the most clinically adept practitioner, the characters and events of Dark Tales are designed to haunt the mind.
