The Space Between is a collection of three stories inspired by the author's lifelong obsession with bridges. An avid urban adventurer and bridge historian, the author shares his passion for these engineering marvels while delving into their potential to fuel our dreams, fears, and nightmares. Part dreamscapes, part adventure tales, these narratives take the reader on an exploration of bridges to inspire their contemplation on a structural as well as metaphysical level.
"What's written here could only be written by one who's broken the locks and ascended the girders. This is a trespasser's diary, but also a biography of living bridges and their inevitably metaphysical narratives, connecting fragile psychological shorelines, crass commuter kingdoms, boyhood adventures, and islands of fog-swirled San Francisco Victoriana. Imagine Joseph Conrad grown up around bridges instead of boats, Lovecraft getting out of the house more, Philip K. Dick ignoring 'No-Entry' signs in the manliest of ways." -Al Ridenour
"Great stories, told by someone who had to have been there. Full of concrete detail and fantasmagoric descriptions, unforgettable experiences that somehow seem authentic, not merely the product of a writer's imagination. Taps the source and wellsprings of the darkest humor ever invented since the world began." -V. Vale, Re/Search Publications
