gourmet scares in this feast of short tales

  • Apr 29, 2012

Short scary tales hook you from the first page in A. F. Stewart’s Killers and Demons. In classic short horror tradition, the tales evoke darkness with beautiful use of language, and twist the reader’s emotions onto a slippery, slithery slope. Reminding me of Ray Bradbury, the author sets up simple scenes—a dinner table perhaps, laid out for a gourmet meal, a faithful knight at prayer, or the haunting fog of Victorian London. Each tale is perfectly seasoned with surprising stings, leaving the reader haunted by the sort of questions horror is meant to leave. And the author wisely doesn’t give the background—who knows, this killer or demon just might live next door.
Delicious, perfectly fitting the scary book cover, ideal for a haunting evening’s read… but keep the lights on and play the music loudly.
Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this book, and I already knew I enjoy the author’s writing.
