Description of this Book

From laugh-out-loud funny to eerily thoughtful, these essays reveal the natural world as a place of unnatural surprises and strange beauty, where Rip Van Winkle, O'Grady's college buddies, and ragtag psychics rub shoulders with Buddha, Socrates, and Stephen King -- and it all makes perfect sense.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review <p> Grave Goods is a first-rate collection, revealing not only the surprising connections between ordinary things, but their metaphysical and philosophical implications as well. His stories, though rooted in everyday reality, stretch our imaginations toward the fantastic and the supernatural. --John Algeo, editor of The Quest <p>
