Good. 0385233531 Good/Good c. 1988, beige bds. w/d.j., 180pp., (lt. shelf wear, corners bumped, text clean, binding good, d.j. taped to bds., lt. edge wear, mylar cover, lt. rubbing) From Publishers Weekly An introduction by Salvador Dali is unexpected for a fantasy collection, but these stories are unusual in their subject matter. Drawing on the legends and cultural background of the American Indians, the contents range from creation myths such as ''When Old Man Coyote Sang the World into Being'' to tales of Indian life and death, and rueful stories of Indian/white relations. Sadly, Strete's vague, mystical imagery and his repetition of a small number of themes (loss, white misunderstanding of Native American culture and, above all, death) give the short collection a dull, monotonous quality. The memorable stories aren't better, only different: the Vietnam fantasy ''The Game of Cat and Eagle'' and the Hollywood dialogue ''Another Horse of a Different Technicolor. '' Copyright 1988 Reed Business Information, Inc. From Library Journal On an unnamed hill in Vietnam, an Indian shaman beholds the inevitable outcome of a futile war as ''The Game of Cat and Eagle'' takes its terrible toll in a story that juxtaposes American Indian mythology and modern culture with startling results. The thirteen stories and two novellas that make up this collection demonstrate Strete's talent for evoking Native American imagery in a fantasy setting. Recommended where story collections are popular. JC.
