    A time capsule of arresting stories ATOPOT begins with a disclaimer stating that the stories in its collection were written over a period of a couple decades at least, which is why certain characters in certain predicaments don t pull out an iPhone to make their predicament go away But what that quick warning leaves unsaid turns out to be one of the book s best surprise features its nebulous sense of timelessness The stories here have a deliberate sense of time and place, but the setting in which a story is set and the setting during which the author sat down and first wrote it and rewrote it, perhaps several years and homes and other life changing events later, before giving it one last layer of polish in 2017 are different things entirely Each play a part, and speculating whether the author s hand in a given story originates in the recent past or 20 years prior or a very amalgamation of the two that developed over time is often as much fun as getting to know the characters and the predicaments in which they find themselves.
