My Quill and Quire review of Lands and Forests, by Andrew Forbes ..

... is now online on the Q&Q website. This collection is a mixed bag of stories, many of which deal with men grappling against their worst impulses. As I mention in the review, the best pieces in the book - "Graceland" and "Broadcasting" - really stand out and impressed me in multiple ways. When he gives himself the space, Forbes knows how to unwind a gripping tale with characters you get invested in and even come to care about. He remains a writer with tremendous potential.
