Listened to this pretty much in one go (mostly sitting on a train, so I was kind of a captive audience!) Although I had read a couple of the stories before, it was nice to listen to them being narrated by Luke - there is always something a bit special when the author is also the narrator. I am most definitely a fan of Mr Smitherd and that dreaded day when I read something of his that is not as good as, if not better than his previous stuff is a long, long way off I think!
An awesome collection of shorts... The least of the stories is very good, and the best are simply excellent... Bit of worlds other than this theme... Stories that'll make you think, not to mention check to see if the lights are on;). Superbly wrought tension, and some fantastic, and disturbing, reveals and reversals... Right up there w/ my fave short fiction writers like King and Ellison... I particularly enjoy the subtle, and not so subtle, linkages and interconnectedness of these tales specifically, but also w/ the author's other works... The puzzle becomes even more intriguing... The narration is superior... If you like short fiction, enjoy the occasional heebie jeebies, or appreciate chewing over what you've just read you'll love these offerings... Worth the price/credit...
