By Christian Petersen

The junction of Highways 20 and ninety seven varieties a coarse correct attitude round which lies the town of Williams Lake. those are the coordinates in which Christian Petersen’s fiction might be charted. From the development of the Gaol at Soda Creek to ruminations at the origins of the Barkerville hearth, All these interested in Me explores the unpredictable, romantic and non secular features of existence in rural BC. The harshness of the wild west permeates Petersen’s moment choice of brief fiction. within the tale “Horse from Persia,” a condemned guy contemplates the injustice of existence at his putting speech: “I wanted mightily that i may climb up on that horse and break out the unhappy puzzle my days had develop into. For if it’s real time is a present, mine used to be no longer altogether pleasant.” yet Petersen is simply as cozy extrapolating truths from present-day existence, as in “Laketown Breakdown” the place a tender guy struggles to stick at the correct part of the legislation whereas dealing with the demise of his mom and dad. And within the identify tale, “All these attracted to Me,” Petersen creates a masterful mix, transferring from the gold rush to the modern with 3 causes, 3 lives and 3 battles with loss of life at the treacherous waters of the higher Quesnel River. Whether long ago or current, Petersen’s characters discover romance, poverty and non secular quandaries as they wander amid the panorama and again streets of the dusty little towns of BC's critical Interior.
