The stories in Destiny's Telescope illuminate the moments when life spins in unexpected and inexplicable ways. A girl with a deadly allergy to the sun ventures out-of-doors. A businessman abandons his sports car in the middle of a traffic jam. A small-town waitress orders her favourite breakfast for a motorcycle riding stranger. A Lolita-chasing man has a run-in with a mysterious black taxicab on a busy street and goes for a different kind of ride. Sometimes, destiny does wait.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing book! Destiny’s Telescope is an amazing collection of short stories. It is one of the best books I’ve read in years. Every story in the book is compellingly plotted and masterfully written, but reading them all togther at the same time is an almost spiritual experience. I devoured the whole thing in one night, then re-read each story more attentively the next afternoon when I kept thinking about them all morning. These stories reveal even more a second time through. I will be recommending this book to every reader I know! You probably haven’t yet read anything by this dynamic young author, but you should. I have a feeling he is “destined” for great things!
