MEDIA REVIEWS
"From the primal ooze of the Mississippi canebrakes to the lush environs of the Mekong Delta, Scott Ely stakes out his own peculiar psychic terrain and nails it down hard. In "The Angel of the Garden, " he conjures both the mythic and the marvellous in a courageous attempt to wrest some measure of redemption from the mundane horrors of the postmodern world. These are stories to cherish with each subsequent reading."
--Floyd Collins

"It will be a calm afternoon. It will be like when I drank and I'd take maybe my fourth or fifth drink and it was as if I stepped into a pool of pure tranquillity. . . . It won't last long, but I'm desperate. I will have it. I will reach that calm place again." This desperate need to regain peace and security pervades Scott Ely's latest collection of short fiction, "The Angel of the Garden."


"In "The Angel of the Garden, " Scott Ely takes us from the ordinary to the unexpected, from the real to the imagined, from the known to the illusory in quick, sure moves." Judith Kitchen"
