Several of Miller’s stories, set so carefully in place and time, edge toward the magical, while others, including “Night Train,” “Killing Houdini” and “Certain Miracles” weave lyricism into traditional realism and historical events. Afficionados of short fiction may detect whiffs of Russell Banks, Bonnie Jo Campbell, Denis Johnson and Daniel Woodrell in the work of Miller, but Miller offers a bit more lyricism in his prose, along with a tad more tenderness in his resolutions. He also plots his stories precisely, making the genre his own.

Mr. Miller’s tales are well crafted. The language can be richly evocative, but never in a way that draws undue attention to itself. A reader may well be drawn into the small worlds he creates, emerging only to discover he has reached the final pages of the volume without quite knowing how he made such a long journey so quickly.

                                                            —Joseph Gresser, The Chronicle (Link to Full Review)

Each of these stories ushers us into a new, fully imagined world, as redolent of elsewhere as the soil samples in the Museum of the Americas, and Miller evokes those elsewheres with sharp observation and colloquial ease.

Most remarkable, perhaps, is that Museum of the Americas reveals the inner and outer lives of its characters in the manner of short-fiction geniuses like Munro and Trevor: that is, without rodomontade, without bells and whistles, without the least look-ma-no-hands gesture. We finish a given tale and find ourselves suddenly dazzled: how far we have ranged–how did we travel so widely without ever having quite been conscious of how we were transported? This collection represents art in its truest sense.
— Sydney Lea, Vermont Poet Laureate
Vivid and arresting: the stories have a gentle fabulism that grows darker as Miller plumbs the human psyche.
