The author’s second novel, The Book of Days consists of a short story told each day by a man trying to talk himself back to sanity. A kind of literary sampler quilt, these daily inventions emulate the styles of everything from traditional ghost stories to the works of O’Henry and James Whitcomb Riley, from westerns to fifties science fiction to boy’s own adventure stories. As a sequence illustrating the narrator’s deep internal struggle, these dark stories take on additional weight, making each one a sharp shock that builds to an electrifying whole.
"Steve Tem possesses both the guts and the ability to try about anything with his fiction and his best work (like "The Man on the Ceiling" co-written with Melanie Tem) is often that which strays farthest from the oft-trod trail . . . In Tem's skilled hands, the intangible is made tangible through metaphor and imagery. [Here] he transcends his own gimmick to achieve a work that is both intriguing and inspirational." -- Paula Guran, Cemetery Dance
"This contemplative odyssey is easily one of the more risk-taking and rewarding books of fantasy published this year." -- Publishers Weekly
