In Meteor Storm, master story-teller Wayne Tefs reveals situations where hard-edged men crash into the limits of their power, where their absolute authority is challenged, their self-control shaken, and their manhood threatened.
In "Sunrise" the calm of an early morning is disturbed by distraught young man bringing news of two horrible deaths. "Walleyes" recounts how a lazy vacation afternoon among friends can devolve to the cusp of violence. And in "Red Rock and After" (winner of a Canadian Magazine Fiction Prize and a Journey Prize finalist) a family suffers through a string of bankruptcies, but remains optismistic about the future.
Tefs's writing style is spare, direct, and reflective and he offers a unique view of where hard-edged men crash into the limits of their power.
