These intriguing tales by Maya Mitra Das take us on wildly imaginative journeys to exotic and sometimes alien landscapes — introducing us to infinitely curious moments in time, space and memory. Maya’s poetry and fiction have appeared in numerous anthologies. This is her first collection of short fiction.
“Silhouettes of Time provides a wide range of short stories. Maya Das must either have a marvelous imagination or has traveled extensively, as she is able to provide distinct descriptions of not only various locations in India, but other countries as well. Her precise descriptions of places and people in Italy, as described in ‘The Daring Escape’ shows a keen attention to detail.
She shows a huge amount of creativity, as in the dream in ‘A Tale Before Halloween.’
Maya weaves many fun-to-read tales.” —Ken
“I was given this book as a gift. It is a collection of short stories. As a short story writer myself I can say without reservation how well crafted and investigated these stories are. Maya Mitra Das takes you on a voyage with each story, weaves fact into fiction. People and places come to life and each story makes you want to read the next. I enjoyed each page. Well done!” —F. M. Ayers
“We thoroughly enjoyed your book release .The parts of the stories you read out were rich and vivid in their description of the characters and their environment- transporting from Lafayette library room to distant parts of the world. Those few paragraphs were so good in gripping you to a story that it was almost like we wanted you to continue and finish that story before starting next We really admire your talent and interest in so many fields to make life such a interesting canvas of creations.” –Prabudha
