Editorial Reviews

Review

"Perhaps the best thing about this collection of short stories is that Bowles manages to deliver a wide array of styles. From vignettes that read like short stories about love gone wrong, to pieces that seem to have been pulled from a night spent telling scary stories around a fire, there's something for everyone here. In fact, despite the academic touches (something that comes accompanied by eight pages of notes that's proof of the work that went into the book and an invitation to explore further), there are passages that will even satisfy those who enjoy their folklore with a touch of horror."--Verbicide --This text refers to the paperback edition.
