I started off reading this book excited for the story 'New Madrid Horror' as I had heard it was a Lovecraft-influenced tale. That certainly was the case, but while I loved Madrid Horror, I was surprised to find that it ultimately ended up not being my favorite story. Instead, I found myself unable to put the book down so long as 'For the Hand of Kimbra' remained unfinished.

This collection of short stories is a lot of fun but don't be misled by its length: there's a lot to unpack, and there's som

Contained with his book are six stories, all varied and interesting showing the ability of the author to provide great variety in the short form.

The shortest (Altar of Alternative) clocks in at less than a minute, and is a fun little story/poem playing on alternative bands and artists. The longest (For the Hand of Kimbra) takes up more than half the book and clocks in at 1:30 hours. It tells the story of a princess fallen in love with her guard and the King wanting to separate the two.

This is a good solid offering of short stories by Aaron Hollingsworth!
I listened to the audio version narrated by Danny Montooth... this book has an interesting mix of horror and fantastical stories... ranging from very short flash-fiction to some longer pieces... I particularly liked  For the Hand of Kimbra. This is a relatively short book, consisting of 6 stories and you could easily listen to it in one session or take your time and save it for short commutes.
