Michael Bishop, Blue Kansas Sky (Golden Gryphon 0-9655901-0-0, $24.95, hc) October 2000. Cover by Ron Walotsky
From the rural Midwest of the 1950s to the 21st-century wheelship of "Cri de Coeur," Michael Bishop addresses issues of diversity and discrimination in Blue Kansas Sky: Four Short Novels of Memory, Magic, Surmise & Estrangement. Whether alien or criminal, Bishop sympathizes with the "outsider" and strives to illuminate the nature of human interactions through deft characterizations and meaningful action.
