The writers included in this book are as diverse as the Sonoran Desert itself. Each winter this motley group of individuals is inexorably drawn together at a small campground bordering Tucson Mountain Park, forming a spontaneous community of creative, imaginative people.
Some of the stories in this book are true. Some are fiction. And some are “creative fiction.” We leave it to you to decide which is which, keeping in mind the old adage that truth is stranger than fiction.
Among the stories are:
- – True accounts of the personal impact of December 7, 1941 and September 11, 2001.
- – The challenge of ordering a bra on the Internet.
- – Memories of rural Iowa, fishing, and kayaking.
- – The pain of a broken relationship.
There are poems and tales of other worlds—Beldain and Bummery—and of events where dreams cross the boundaries of time.
And there are stories of the tin can gypsies: life on the road in an RV.
