4.333, more like. It's a shame these chapbooks have to have a limited run, but I gotta say I'm proud of myself for picking this one up before time ran out. First of all, the design is gorgeous.

And then there's the stuff inside. So I vaguely know Tony Rapino from around and about the horror blogger scene, and he's a cool guy. Let me just throw that disclaimer out there before I start telling you why I liked this.

And now here's why: it was the embodiment of that term you really, really want in you

Three short stories - from three different phases of Mr. Rapino's career - 'Uprooted' is a look at love, pain, loss, and connections. Connections between people, between worlds, between things - even connections between connections are glimpsed here.

The collection starts out with the longest and the centerpiece - 'Uprooted.' It's a tale of what holds us together, what can take us apart - and the strangely simple, little things that make the whole thing worthwhile. Rapino is especially effective

This little chapbook is a gem, offering 3 different stories that provide a delightfully dark sampling of Tony’s writing.
