Especially when, as is the case with this collection, so many of them not only interconnect with each other, but tie together with those longer (and already connected) works, further weaving everything into a single complex and compelling universe.
This ‘Chandlerverse,’ as I’m going to call it until something better or more official comes along, is … a dark place, readers. Dark, harsh, cynical, not exactly hopeless but certainly not rose-tinted or optimistic either. It’s a place where bad stuff is just an expected and everyday part of life. [bleep] happens, even the best people are horrible, and the most anybody can do is try to get through it.
Sometimes, the bad stuff is as ordinary as can be, the ordinary resentments and frustrations of dealing with partners, children, work, random strangers. Petty cruelties, harsh words, emotional abuse, neglect. Sometimes it steps up a notch, when the mundane gives way to the more extreme – the violent outbursts, the serial killers, deep-down crazies, all-too-real monsters in human form.
And, sometimes, seeping in around the edges like insidious shadows, the bad stuff is on a whole ‘nuther level. For instance, all these maddening and tantalizing hints about what the heck’s up with April Diver’s house; I was all excited to see her crop up in a story after appearing in Hate To Feel, and there is definitely something up with that house! Where/when is THAT book? I need to know!
Ahem. Sorry. Yeah. Anyway, yes, some even-spookier aspects, from blurring the lines between madness and genuine paranormal menace right on up to malicious interventions courtesy of the Devil himself, will be found here. There are several looks into a near-future that’s already more plausible than is comfortable, particularly as involves social issues and religion.
Brilliant, bleak, psychologically devastating, slicing not like a knife but a barrage of micro-fine scalpels (also, sex, gore, depravity, and blasphemy like whoa), these stories aren’t happy reads. But, wow, are they powerful ones!
