    " Looked forward to reading this book of short stories, as I really liked his novel, "Heart Shaped Box". Absolutely hated this one. Couldn't finish it.

    " Man, this bowled me over. Each of these stories is beautiful and most are not creepy in the immediate way, but creepy in a way that sneaks up on you just as you hit the last sentence. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Leah | 5/7/2011

    " Awesome. This book was fresh, exciting, and new. He has a strong voice that I'm happy to have discovered. It's not so much horror that he writes as magical realism, which gave him more space to explore dark topics without having to stick to the genre's clichés. I'm pumped for more. "

    " When I pick up a book of short stories I always expect a mixed bag, some hit and some miss. All of these hit with me, even the worst of them was better than many other authors I've read. "
