Acres of Perhaps collects acclaimed and thrilling fiction writer Will Ludwigsen's recent and most heartfelt stories; these are tales that delve into what crime means, alternative history, whether a person could live a different life than the one of the moment, what humanity can do about the big and small evils of the world...as well as inspired serial killers, haunted presidents, cursed lead figurines, and a weird late-night '60s television show that meant much more to the fabric of reality than it let on. These stories are the collision of imaginative and brutal realism.

Poignant and haunting
The beauty of Acres of Perhaps lies in Ludwigsen's writing and his ability to distill the magic and terror of times past, on both a societal and personal scale. This anthology brims with the deeply felt emotions of a boy told not to cry with the back of a father's hand. When I finished the audiobook (the narrator, John Fleming, does an excellent job), I immediately wanted to start over, because I didn't want it to end.
