Well I'm glad to say that even though some of the stories in this book were sad/depressing (as I found the ones in the first book) many more of them had a bits of lightness that gave a bit of hope for the characters and where things might end up eventually. Probably what I like the most about the world Mr. Robinson has created is that the gods don't care about the rest of the world/humanity, only about what they are doing amongst themselves, so there's so much scope to what they and their attach ...more

Much like film noir, Justin Robinson was born and raised in Los Angeles. He splits his time between editing comic books, writing prose and wondering what that disgusting smell is. Degrees in Anthropology and History prepared him for unemployment, but an obsession with horror fiction and a laundry list of phobias provided a more attractive option.
