His collection includes over two dozen stories spanning the speculative fiction genres, dealing with love, death, and the places where those experiences intersect. There will be whiskey (since characters in several of his stories drink whiskey), other beverages, and light munchies (none of which show up in his stories which calls into question his rationale for the whiskey).
