Break My Heart 1,000 Times by Daniel Waters
" I'm not sure there's too many authors out there whose works I eagerly anticipate as much as Daniel Waters (not just for YA fiction -- fiction, period). His Generation Dead series remains one of the truly ballsiest and addictive series of the last... " Read more of this review »
Dark Discoveries - Issue #27 by Douglas Clegg
" I won a copy on Goodreads Firstreads.

First off, this is not a book. It is a magazine, issue #27 to be exact. It is the dark mystery issue, but their main focus is horror. It features several short stories and non-fiction articles on various topics... " Read more of this review »
Dark Discoveries - Issue #27 by Douglas Clegg
" Issue #27 of DARK DISCOVERIES is another fine one; it's the first issue with a new editor, but I didn't note any lapse of quality. They tend to center each issue around a particular theme; this time it's Dark Mystery, with referential columns and... " Read more of this review »

It pains me that I didn't discover Steve Rasnic Tem's excellent short fiction earlier in my life. In some respects, these seems like a brilliant dystopian Bradbury going very, very dark. The best, I think, is "The Battering," but "The Painters Come T...more
Fancies and Goodnights by John Collier

A handful of these stories are truly amazing, the rest are merely good reads. And I mean "good reads" as a high compliment. The best, I think, are "Evening Primrose," "Witch Money," and "Thus, I Refute Beelzy." It's remarkable that such dark but smar...more

“He put his hand over my mouth. His hand felt warm, full of blood, the hand of a living man. “Death is a gift, so long as it is nature’s hand. But this,” he drew his hand away, and nodded toward the dead man in the grass. “When we are called back unnaturally, Death demands a price, for there is always a balance. If I am alive, then someone else must die before his time. This is what you have done. But he is the lucky one. He is at peace. I know what awaits him, and I envy him.”
Douglas Clegg, Isis

“We kill, kill, kill. Flesh, spirit, whatever gets in our way. It's like our whole purpose is to extinguish life. And for those who live, there's memory, like a curse. We're such a mixture of frailty and cruelty.”
Douglas Clegg

“Sometimes, they wait. Sometimes, you see the dead come in to the harbor, and their old dogs are all along the docks, wagging their tails, for they have waited for their masters and mistresses for many years. You see mothers who have missed their sons. Fathers who had never spoken of love to their children, ready to embrace them as they voyage from the end of life. It shows the lies of this world, you see. We are wrong about so many things here. Mankind has done terrible things, yet we are forgiven.”
Douglas Clegg, Isis
