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

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

“Death has a price, and all who bargain with the dead must pay it.”
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

“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
