I finally tracked down a copy of Controlled Burn, his collection of short stories. Every story in this collection is great. He portrays characters at the fringes of society - convicts, ex-convicts, and people who work in cash only businesses because they're hiding from their pasts. His spare, muscular prose is engaging. And yet, like in stories like "Tigers", his language is poetic.
My favorite stories are probably "Tigers", "The Copper Kings", and "Vigilance".
If you're a fan of good writing, you should track this collection down.
