Contrasting tales of suspense anchor Above an Abyss: Two Novellas, Ryan Masters's debut collection of fiction. In Trampoline Games, all is not well among the sharply defined suburbs of Salt Lake City in the summer of 1986. A 12-year-old boy arrives in a land of "mountains, Mormons, crickets" to find baffling prejudice, but also intoxicating freedom, lust, moments of heaven and, in the end, a terrible violence. In The Moth Orchid, a woman embarks on a desperate quest into her past in hopes of finding answers when a hereditary form of early onset dementia begins to ravage her mind. Set against the noir backdrop of a sub-zero Alaskan winter, The Moth Orchid is a gripping tale of one woman's struggle with the inevitability of oblivion.
