Wings Unseen

Wings Unseen

The Meduan and Lanserim ways of life are as compatible as oil and water. But when a menacing threat descends upon both countries, devouring all living things in its wake and leaving only husks of skin behind, Lansera's young Prince Janto and his fiancée, Serra, must learn to work together with the bedeviling Vesperi, an unpredictable Meduan who may possess the only weapon that can save them—the Silver Flame.

Aurealis Magazine Reviews Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

Keith Rosson’s new collection, FOLK SONGS FOR TRAUMA SURGEONS was reviewed by Eugen Bacon in Aurealis Magazine #137. An insightful review of an amazing collection.

Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons is not your everyday collection. This uncanny offering by Keith Rosson, author of The Mercy of the Tide, Smoke City and Road Seven is a statement, perhaps a rebellion, or a deep and silent bellow: a belly-deep trauma that falls like seditious pebbles out of a tormented jaw.

Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

With Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, award-winning author Keith Rosson delves into notions of family, grief, identity, indebtedness, loss, and hope, with the surefooted merging of literary fiction and magical realism he’s explored in previous novels. In “Dunsmuir,” a newly sober husband buys a hearse to help his wife spread her sister’s ashes, while “The Lesser Horsemen” illustrates what happens when God instructs the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse to go on a team-building cruise as a way of boosting their frayed morale. In “Brad Benske and the Hand of Light,” an estranged husband seeks his wife’s whereabouts through a fortuneteller after she absconds with a cult, and in “High Tide,” a grieving man ruminates on his brother’s life as a monster terrorizes their coastal town. With grace, imagination, and a brazen gallows humor, Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons merges the fantastic and the everyday, and includes a number of Rosson’s unpublished stories, as well as award-winning favorites.

Booklist Weighs in on Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons by Keith Rosson

We are excited to share a review of Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons from Booklist. This reviewer’s insight was spot on about Keith’s stories. The book hits stores on 2/23 but you can preorder using links below.

Rosson’s stories are often cynical tales, with hope dotting their cores: stories centered on people who are stuck, who are longing for something in their pasts, who are floundering within addiction, struggling through recovery, or who have been in some way left behind.

★ Publishers Weekly Starred Review for Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons

Publishers Weekly weighs in on Keith Rosson’s debut story collection, Folk Songs for Trauma Surgeons, with a wonderful starred review! The collection releases in February 2021 but is available now for preorder.

With this excellent collection of 15 jagged, fragmented pieces, dark fantasist Rosson subverts expectations and challenges his characters and his readers alike to second-guess their preconceptions. Evil is just as likely to spring from daily life as to lunge out of the supernatural in these disquieting tales.
