This collection of short works is wonderfully peppered with psychological specters and classic monsters. The lingering horrors of war haunt the reader throughout the collection, like something unspeakable in your peripheral vision. The language is lush and visceral.The titular story of the collection, “The Hobbsburg Horror,” is an enjoyable small-town mystery of murder and mythology- a mythology that could use it’s own full-length work.
