Brian Hodge delivers a superb collection of dark fiction shorts. Every single one of these eclectic and haunting stories cuts straight to the core of the darker side of human nature. Hodge’s writing style is crisp and clean. His horror is subtle, so don’t expect explosions of gore. His stories have depth and weight. This was not a quick or easy read for me and I am glad that it was not. You should take your time with this one and savior each tale. Highly recommended!
