The Night Blooming Cereus
and Other Stories
The structure of the novella is a tapestry
of different voices in different times.
It teases with a puzzle whose voice fits into the fascinating narrative as the sequence of events becomes clear.
"Hal Wilson has woven together a collection of stories that
subtly woo you into a trance - a trance where you say . . . just one
more page; just one more chapter; just one more story. His
description is clear; his narrative active and his stories
- Judy Reveal, editor and author
"Harold Wilson has written a fast-paced tale that is stuffed
with intense, bizarre, yet believable characters. I'm reminded of
Carl Hiaasen and John Berendt when I'm shoved into the lives of
these players. This is a good read.
-Robert Fulton, PhD., writer and editor
"Hal Wilson's philosophical musings and arresting images
encourage us to reflect on life's hard choices. Tightly-drawn
characters such as a combat-corroded young soldier and a wickedly
elegant dame remain in the reader's mind long after experiencing
their stories. Thoughtful and occasionally downright amusing, "The
Night Blooming Cereus and Other Stories," deserves a wide audience.
-Herbert Howe, Georgetown University
