For some odd reason, I rarely read short stories. There are just so many fantastic novels out there! However, I’m glad I picked up Dennis E. Bolen’s Anticipated Results—it read like a novel as each poignant tale featured characters from the same group of disenchanted friends. Bolen’s writing was masterful and eloquent as he depicted the daily disappointments and dysfunctions of a subset of the Baby Boomer generation in Vancouver. A dinner party gone awry became a fantastic tale of suspense that left me chilled and really moved me. Bolen has a way with words and I look forward to reading other works by him. (submitted by MS)
