Old men, young boys, maids and maidens sometimes evil, sometimes good, sometimes possessed by evil, and sometimes given to good. All of which can be found in the various stories within. The best parts for me has been that the stories are various lengths some shorter than others and so a few minutes is well rewarded with a shiver, or a thought that keeps you going till your next stitch.
Perhaps if I was familiar with Mr. Cassell's works, some things he refers in this book to might have been clearer for me. The cover says "In The Shadow Fabric Mythos". I don't know what that is and I don't know what "mythos" means. Shadows are mentioned in other stories. Some stories take place in or near a town called Mabley Holt. I don't know if that town is significant or if it has played a role of any of his other works. I wish I was more clear on these points.
I love short horror stories and I enjoyed these very much. The writing is very good and the stories held my interest. I really enjoyed "On The Vine", a story about two campers who get tied up in a creepy situation. I also like "Red, White and Black" You might want to think twice before participating in any clinical trial after reading this one. It is the longest story in the book. However, it was not boring and held my interest throughout the entire story. "Meeting Mum" was also very good. Tells the story of a young man who finally brings his girlfriend home to meet his mother. Read the story to find out what took him so long. I had a difficult time staying interested in "The Artist and the Crone". This was the only story I did not like. It did not take away the fact that I enjoyed this collection of short horror stories very much.
I plan to read more books and stories by Mark Cassell. I just need to learn what "In The Shadow Fabric Myrhos" means!
