Life, death, hope, faith, spirituality, love, and the deeper mysteries behind them all, are the best ways to sum up the overall theme for "Phoenix Tales: Stories of Death & Life." This collection of literary short stories blends fantasy with ...
splashes of science fiction and horror to tell seventeen dark and unique tales. Each story in some way puts its lead character into situations where life or death choices must be made. Reviewers have compared Banks' work to the likes of Roger Zelazny and Harlan Ellison, while the author himself cites such master storytellers as J.R.R. Tolkien, Robert Heinlein, and Ray Bradbury as his greatest influences. As CD Moulton says, "I do not give five stars to anything. I give this one five stars. That says it all."
