Millhauser’s new collection of short stories may convince you of the existence of other worlds hidden just out of sight, barely contained by the expanse of our own minds. His stories reside in the borderlands of magic and realism, reminding the reader that there is always more out there, around us, and within us than we may be comfortable acknowledging. The towns he writes of, full of normal people gripped by a common desire to connect to ordinarily unreachable planes, describe the dangerous desires hidden beneath the surface of our daily lives. Decide for yourself if Bayfield could be the next town experiencing Mermaid Fever!
