For those readers fortunate enough to have read Christopher Meeks’ first short story collection - THE MIDDLE-AGED MAN AND THE SEA - and discovered the idiosyncrasies of Meeks’ writing style and content, rest assured that this new collection - Months and Seasons - not only will not disappoint, but also it will provide further proof that we have a superior writer of the genre in our presence!
Meeks is an observer of the human condition, and that does not mean his view is lopsided or focused on only one realm of characters. True, he does create characters that have strangely vulnerable aspects that alter the way they interact with those around them. But in the end, these are people we pass in the street or sit next to on the bus, or notice in the strange places of Southern California like malls, funky parties - or just ‘around’ the neighborhood or cities. But his strange creations have just the right amount of ‘normalcy’ that in our eyes could make them part of the unnoticed woodwork: in Meeks’ eyes (and pen) they become extraordinary seeds for terrific stories.
