    Review copy kindly provided by GR author and friend John Dodsworth This is a small collection of stories which can be described as ranging from downright horror to a sort of dark comedyDodsworth is successful in experimenting with point of view Quite a few of the stories are told by first person narrators but there's one story which uses second person and some that use third The characters are quite different We have some office drones who work in banking or investment but we also have drifters and street people and a young girl who is dealing the best way she knows how with her parents' messy divorce The story of little Julie was for me the best executed and the most tragicIn all cases we feel that we know the main character quite well Dodsworth puts them in situations which to them seem normal or almost normal However the reader senses immediately that something is not right The story bears out this feeling by following the strugggle of the person who is usually pitted against malevolent forces These stories are no than a few pages each and yet the author packs in a lot of well developed characters and suspenseful situations His endings are usually tragic shocking or horrific as characters come face to face with evil either from the outside or within themselves
