So here is a collection of 42 short stories, under the title of ONION SONGS that span the writing career of Steve Rasnic Tem, emphasizing the bizarre, the offbeat and the meditative. He confronts the big questions of human experience (ageing, death, identity, relationships) like a collector digging deep in the clutter of an attic and pulling out only the most unexpected and most telling finds. Some of the stories are only two pages long (as in the poignant "The Sadness'), some a bit longer in length but more terse in verbal timing (as in the consummately written `The Hijacker') and some linger over more pages though not so many they would constitute a novella.
Steve Rasnic Tem hurts to read at times, digs up some of the most dissociatively bizarre tales in others, but always satisfies the reader that moving from story to story with an experience in feeing and fantasizing and trying to figure out just where all these ideas are birthed. He is a strange but wonderful bird in flight. Grady Harp, March 13
