Praise:

​

Ron Savage's tales—through terse, compact, suggestive phrases opens to the reader the inner world of his characters, while understatedly describing an indifferent, often harsh, world within which they are encased--take on many of the vexing issues (such as: war, violence, and the resulting physical and/or psychological trauma) of our contemporary world. His stories reveal what's going on rather then tendentiously preach about the innumerable social ills of these "end times."
