I don't judge books totally by their cover, though I have to say that I really appreciate the thought that goes behind Maria Savva's book covers.

Crime, passion, ghosts, obsession, hope, faith, and new beginnings-you will. I don't judge books totally by their cover, though I have to say that I really appreciate the thought that goes behind Maria Savva's book covers. For the longest time, I thought the cover of 'Fusion' was a photo of a white flower against a black background. I've only just realised "what the picture is, really," and how the black and white tones in the photo seem to be a "seamless fusion.

I don't judge books totally by their cover, though I have to say that I really appreciate the thought that goes behind Maria Savva's book covers. For the longest time, I thought the cover of 'Fusion' was a photo of a white flower against a black background. I've only just realised "what the picture is, really," and how the black and white tones in the photo seem to be a "seamless fusion."

I was initially surprised and intrigued with the table of contents (feat. 22 stories). I assumed that they'd be of 'flash fiction' length (i.e. short short stories), which I've always enjoyed reading because there tends to be focus in a well-written short piece (as opposed to long novels with a lot of filler text).

I found the writing style to be very clean and sharp, which made for easy reading, which reminded me of the following quote from Nathaniel Hawthorn: "easy reading is damn hard writing."

There were very, very nice twists to certain stories, and I liked the scope of the stories. Seemingly ordinary people in ordinary circumstances, yet with a profound simplicity that can escape us as we hurtle on in our "technologically advanced" age where speed and new things seem to matter above all else.

Ms. Savva's work is original and personal, and individualistic yet 'social' at the same time, in the sense that the characters and storyline are things people everywhere can relate to. That to me is what really captured the 'fusion' in Fusion. "Thought provoking and eventful stories written to entertain and inspire," indeed!
  • The Rollers of Vildar
The short story is one of the most difficult writing forms to master. Like full-length fiction, an effective short story must have a distinct beginning, middle and end. Unlike long fiction, there's no room for pontification; all literary fat must be trimmed off, leaving only what is vital to the plot. In Fusion, a collection of masterfully crafted short stories by Maria Savva, the subject matter is very much rooted in reality. Each story explores a particular aspect of humanity: love, longing, greed, cruelty, justice and compassion, to name a few. Many of the stories have a moral, like modern-day Aesop's fables, making them all the more remarkable. Another strength of the stories in 'Fusion' is their plausibility. You won't find vampires, werewolves or adolescent wizards here, and the collection is all the better for it. Maria Savva is a natural storyteller and an incisive observer of the human condition. Her short stories are celebrations - sometimes dark-tinged ones - of what it is to be human. Like all the best artists, she makes it look easy.

I'm a fan of Maria Savva, so I was delighted to read her new short story collection. Having read her longer work, I wasn't sure what to expect--often a novelist has trouble mastering the compact form of the short story. But Savva rises to the challenge and excels.

The stories here are intimate and, as is the case with all her work, I feel as though I really know each character immediately. Each story in this collection is very different, but the collection is bound by keen insights and the characters' unique longings. A tell of Savva's work is that her characters always feel real, never overdone or overly glamorized. I can honestly say that there wasn't a story in here that didn't pull me in and keep me close. Some of the stories have a melancholy feel, but never without a sense of purpose or drive, and each delivers an immaculate portrait that speaks to a necessary truth that is at the same time universal and uniquely delivered.

Fusion is an eclectic collection of powerful shorts by Maria Savva. Varied as they are in subject, Maria puts a common theme within each story and the book could have been eponymously titled 'Maria's Feelings'. What she has done is showcase her view of people, and sometimes from vantage points we do not expect.

It is easy to imagine these writings came to life because she merely saw something interesting for a moment:
A man feeding ducks in a park, but with such sadness in his eyes - it became the poignant `The last time he saw her"
A beleaguered social worker with an overly full satchel, struggling in the rain to make if from an estate to her car - and it sparked the darkness of `A vicious circle'
A gas-man, staring helplessly at his clipboard, trying to figure an address in multistoried housing - and Maria creates `Cold calling'

Maria has been all these places, for the blink of an eye, but she creates from those instants such an expanse of story. This is a wonderful collection. Please read it, and enjoy it as I do.
