Fog and Other Stories
Laury A. Egan
This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
The author of "The Outcast Oracle" delivers 23 stories dealing with the metaphorical concept of fog as a state produced by grief, mental illness, love, anger, religious fanaticism, dementia, pain, prejudice, or dreams and how the human being refracts reality through these diffused prisms. Protagonists struggle with physical and psychological distortions that lead them down problematic paths, whether due to jealously or desire in the case of lovers or hypothermia experienced by a fallen mountain climber.
