News and reviews
 

"Burrow down in your seat for a great read. Dana Fitz Gale is a masterful storyteller. With poetic prose that doesn't dally and a hunter's eye for the subtle human acts that change lives, Spells for Victory and Courage is gritty, and more than a little thrilling. Fitz Gale's stories are compassionate and tough. A collection reminscent of Annie Proulx's best stories."
