What Some of the Critics Have Had to Say

Threatened species, by Jeff Vande Zande, is the story of a father, a son, fly fishing, and a kidnapping. Included in the book with this novella are five additional short stories.

Praise from critics for Threatened Species:

“I pondered each of these stories well after I read them.”
--Seth Norman, Fly Rod and Reel Magazine

“Reminiscent of A River Runs Through It.”
--Michael Darmes, Detroit Fly Fishing Examiner

“The tension is like heat lightning before a thunderstorm.”
--Bill Castanier,

Threatened Species is a wonderful collection . . . something different and something priceless.”
--Toney Sisk, Wayward Fly Fishing

Reminder about Friday's visit from Jeff:
4:00 – 4:30 Refreshments and conversation; opportunity to purchase author’s books
4:30 – 5:00 Reading by author
5:00 – 6:00 More refreshments and conversation, plus another opportunity to buy books and have them signed by the author

Fishermen and fisherwomen and all who appreciate good writing and those who want to support Michigan writers and independent bookstores are more than welcome at tomorrow's event. Actually, I'm hard pressed to think of anyone who isn't welcome, so come one, come all!

Thanks for the cheerful reminder, Dawn. As always, I am planning to remember--just hope I do!

By the way, I completely agree with the reviewer (above) who cites the tension in the novella. Lots of suspense there!
