"...when we make something it holds more than just the materials we use," says Miss Henrietta,
one of the characters in a short story included in Crow Johnson Evans' generously laden buffet of a
book. With materials ranging from short stories, a novella, and non-fiction essays, tones and genres
which include memoir, science fiction, suspense, and YA, Evans takes readers from Beirut to the
Ozark backwoods, past, present, and future, with narrators of all ages (including a tree). Knitting,
weaving, the sounds of a South Indian morning, a loving but lily-besotted partner...these are rich
materials. But she makes them "more," as her observed thoughts, feelings, empathy, and insight
overlay real and imagined experience. Flights Of Fancy takes wing. It will nest in readers' branches
for a long time to come.--Crescent Dragonwagon, Author of Bean by Bean

In this short story collection, author Crow Johnson Evans displays a deep concern and understanding
of humanity, a lively spirit of adventure, and a lyrical writing talent. The outcome is a reading treasure
providing thoughtful entertainment and delight to all. Enjoy!
-- Radine Trees Nehring, author of Dear Earth:A Love Letter From Spring Hollow and the "To Die
For" Mystery series.

Flights Of Fancy is songwriter Crow Johnson Evans' fanciful journey into prose. Along the flight path
the reader has a wide-angle view of terrain stretching from Gibraltar to India, to Texas. This collection
is a feast for the senses as it stitches together a patchwork quilt of storytelling, mystery and song.
--Alison Moore, author of Synonym for Love.

Lyrical with a touch of magical realism, Crow Johnson Evans' writing carries the reader along and
away to a world where the miraculous is part of everyday life.
--Laura Castoro, author of A New Lu and Icing on the Cake.

In Flights Of Fancy, a character says: " I don't know how long we stayed that way, arms out, feeling
the world humming." Crow Johnson Evans could have been describing her own book there. It hums
--with wonder and wit and intelligence, with the natural world and knitting and generosity. It hums
indeed.
--Ann Hood, author of The Knitting Circle and The Red Thread.

These marvelous stories are about everyday people leading not so everyday lives. Crow leads you
through a labyrinth of her own brand of Southern Gothic writing that's as real as the day is long.
--Lucinda Williams, Songwriter/Grammy winning Recording Artist
