Situations range from the bizarre to the very real. In Sight, a young man is allowed to see exactly what his girlfriend is doing when she leaves their home. A botched robbery in Jorge, Get the Gun leads to murder the same day JFK is buried. In the end, Devil Talk shocks, amuses, and tantalizes as it explores human passions and the corruption we valiantly attempt to avoid as we wander through life. Anything can happen in one of Daniel Olivas stories. These are disorienting, sometimes disturbing, but always entertaining tales told by a master folk-teller who knows we would much rather listen to the devil talk than hear an angel sing. -- Rob Johnson, editor Fanasmas: Supernatural Stories by Mexican American Writers
