Quirky, innovative, and brightly new, Russell’s collection of short stories blurs the line between horror, fantasy and myth. Her impressive scope is well matched by the diverse narrators voicing the collection — all of whom fully realize her eerie eclecticism in accent, mood, pace and quiet terror.
