"The Rose Man" is the twelfth release within the author's single shot series. In this short, Dane Morrison meets an old man who is selling roses on the side of the road. Upon their meeting, Dane's dreams and the waking world become twisted and soon he finds himself in grip of the supernatural.
The Rose Man is a unique character that snuck through my defense. I knew with this author's previous work that I should expect a nice twist or something completely different that what I expect. In this case Mr. West caught me and boy was it ever worth it.
"I understand ," Carol replied. She crouched back over. "He's green, Dane! My husband is dead and green!"
"The Rose Man" was thought to be lost but recently the author recovered it. It's clear why this story won first place in the1987 Guilded Quill Awards. My only complaint with this short is I feel like The Rose Man is such an enigmatic figure that he deserves more; or well the fans need more of him.
If you are a fan of Mr. West's previous works, then this is a must read. For newcomers, it's a great short to introduce you to the author's twisted mind.
Well that was kinda creepy. I'll never look at roses the same ever again.
Such a thoughtful and simple gesture buying a rose for the one you love and what awful consequences that simple gesture results in in this tale. The Rose Man is a very creative and imaginative story with twists that I couldn't even have begun to see coming. If I had any flowers in my house while reading this they would certainly be hidden out of sight as soon as I was done! Just the thought of them sat there gives me the shivers!
While at work the following week, Dane was thinking about the rose that he had purchased for his wife, and smiling to himself. His smile was short lived, however, as he watched his co-worker stroll into the office late. Again. He looked like s***, and smelled of alcohol, but what Dane noticed was the six roses that Willie was carrying.
Dane saw The Rose Man again on his way home from work, and was surprised to learn that he had been robbed. Some thief snatched a bunch of red roses from The Rose Man's hand as he drove by. He didn't tie the two events together right away. But when his co-worker died a grisly death, it was a connection that could not be ignored.
