Item description for Devil Talk: Stories by Daniel A. Olivas...

In these short stories, men and women confront evil in all its forms, drama, and even humor against a backdrop of Chicano and Mexican culture. 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. These twenty-six stories bring us to a place once inhabited by Rod Serling . . . only the accents have changed. This is Latino fiction at its edgy, fantastical best.

Eerie tales that walk the line of darkness  Apr 7, 2005
Devil Talk: Stories is an anthology of Latino short fiction, laced with men and women encountering evil, drama, even humor amid the everyday life of Chicano and Meixcano culture. Author Daniel A. Olivas, published in numerous anthologies and literary journals including "The MacGuffin" and "The Pacific Review", presents his wickedest work in these eerie tales that walk the line of darkness, from a botched robbery with deadly consequences on the same day that JFK is buried to a young man's preternatural ability to see exactly what his girlfriend is doing when he is away. An enthralling collection; the stories are so tantalizing that they are best devoured all at once.
