Moments of Light

Moments of Light by Fred ChappellMoments of Light Foreward by Annie Dillard. These stories prove that the mythic powers of the balladeer and the story teller survive even in this fragmented and unmysterious day. In the eleven stories gathered here, Fred Chappell engages and entertains our minds and sends us away singing in our hearts, more knowing, more understanding of ourselves.

Fred Chappell's voice is sure and his vision is keen. As Annie Dillard writes in the foreword: "These are living, vivid narratives whose rich actions lodge in the imagination: world-wise and gentle Mr. Cody blowing up a tree; Norma, the drunk in love...

The Inkling

The Inkling by Fred ChappellThe Inkling by Fred Chappell is, says the New York Times, "A work of genuine talent... Chappell writes with power and passion and with flashes of humor."

This early novel of Chappell's takes sixteen-year-old Jan to where we often try to go-the place where all is right just before it goes wrong. The novel begins and ends with Jan's vision in just that place and with his searing pain of ignorance and failure. Chappell gives us characters for tragedy: a mother, bereaved and weak; her two children, a retarded older girl and, in contrast, a bright younger boy deeply frightened by what he perceives...

Dagon

Dagon by Fred ChappellYellow light filled the attic. The light locked with the dust-tons of dust up here-and the atmosphere of the place stuffed his head like a fever. It seemed that he perceived this light with every nerve of his body.

The attic was mostly empty but toward the south wall was a queer arrangement of chains; the ends dangled about seven feet from the floor and had broad iron bands attached. The bands were hinged on one side so they could open and shut. The chains looked red in the yellow light.

He held one of the bands and stroked his finger along the inside and it came away reddish. Rust, he thought;...
