Diverse, engaging stories well produced.

Lots of variety in these stories, considering they're the work of a single author. Some are vignettes w/o much action, but with fine insights into human nature and the human condition, worthy of pondering even after the narration ends. Others (more of these) feature well executed and imaginative plot devices that kept me riveted, hanging on every sentence. There's also a nice range of genres covered.

Rish has a lot of experience narrating, and producing, both his own stories and those of other authors. It shows here. Every character gets a unique, spot on appropriate, and well acted voice, all of which fall perfectly into place w/o disrupting the flow of Rish's own narrator's voice. The author's vocal skills almost make these stories sound like full cast recordings. Some of the voices are also hilarious, but always appropriately so.

The author's comments were always enjoyable and enlightening when offered, and missed when not. The interspersed flash fiction bits ranged from fun to meh, but didn't get in the way.

I got at least as much entertainment value out of this collection as I would from a well above average novel of equivalent length, and went on to purchase Rish Outfield's other story collection as well.
