“Soul” stories gripping, passionate

. . . These are passionate stories by a man who knows his art and how to use it.

The 14 stories in The Soul in There are not previously published stories but were written especially for this book. . . The power of Jung’s stories pulls you from story to story much in the way a good novel pulls you from chapter to chapter. . .

The collection begins with a story about an older man with a memory problem who is looking for his automobile in a parking ramp where someone driving one of those monster trucks is terrorizing people. At times this story reads almost like a Stephen King story but, overall, it is so much more than you will find in a story by King. . .

[It’s] important that you give The Soul in There a try.

— John Douglas, The Grand Rapids Press


The Study of Letters

No other pleasure suits every occasion, every age, or every place. But the study of letters is the food of youth, the delight of old age, the ornament of prosperity, the refuge and comfort of adversity, a delight at home and no burden abroad; it stays with us at night, and goes with us on our travels, near and far.
