Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"Although the horror genre naturally lends itself to up close and personal examination of good and very nasty evil, little writing in that genre is faith inflected. This anthology addresses that gap. 'Faith' is used loosely and expansively in this collection of short tales that offers something for lots of different tastes-slasher, fairy tale, end times, ghost story-as well as religion. 'Zen and the Art of Gordon Dratch's Damnation,' by Douglas F. Warrick, is a meditation on enlightenment as cagey as any Zen master's teaching. 'Different from Other Nights' by Eliyanna Kaiser offers a knife twist on the Passover celebration. Although the anthology is uneven, as collections often can be, the very best, like Gary A. Braunbeck's 'For My Next Trick I'll Need a Volunteer,' resonate in the mind long afterward, with no guts or gore. And while Cathrynne M. Valente's 'The Days of Flaming Motorcycles' is a wicked clever zombie tale set in Augusta, Maine, readers may wonder where zombie Jesus is when we need him." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

The destructiveness of passion, both earthly and supernatural, makes cities bleed and souls burn across worlds, through endless time. Experience the spiritual side of the zombie apocalypse in "The Days of Flaming Motorcycles" and transcend both hell and nirvana in "Zen and the Art of Gordon Dratch's Damnation." Look into "The Mad Eyes of the Heron King" to find the beautiful brutality written in the moment of epiphany or "Go and Tell it On the Mountain," where Jesus Christ awaits your last plea to enter heavenif there is a heaven to enter when all is said and done.
