Dead Voices is a collection of stories that are both seriously realistic and comically whimsical. They have everything from superheroes who get sick on words, to the appearance of dead playwrights, to the visit of saints and sinners from the past, to a hot stove discussion on hockey and love. They're about the modern mind-set and its technological marvels and the older attention to character and virtue.
In Hot Stove they'd forget they were teachers, fathers, husbands, compromisers, bullshit artists, or whatever else they normally functioned as, and became soldiers, predators, hunters, warriors -- a bunch of old-timers who had seen their glory years long ago and still laced up the skates for the love of the game.
