If you believe that good horror is not just about chills, thrills and the occassional gross out, but also in capturing a sense existential angst in an uncertain world, you'll enjoy this. This is what horror should strive for. It protrays a darker more complex world that man is perhaps best left being ignorant of.
It also appeals to the issus of the relationship of Man and God, turning back to a more primitive Gods and religions where the divine is less beneficient and religion less narcisstic, a harsher sense of faith. I enjoy notion of horror and the weird in dealing with man's faith and existential fear, as in Harlan Ellisons Deathbird Stories. I highly recommend this to those interested in the relationship between man and the divine.
My only major criticism- It's a bit too expensive although that's understandable with limited printing. I would have preferred to see this in a collected work of short fiction by this author. That said, collectors of good horror should not miss this one.
Reading Brian's stories always piques my interest on new subjects and sends me off to learn more about the world around me. It also sends me off to buy more of his books.
