“The skyscrapers of the city had finished scraping all the sky away, and the clouds overhead were exactly the color of concrete and I was safe and cold in a canyon of glass and steel.”
Creative, compelling, clear voice, consistent, characters not just sketched but colored in. Macabre and witchy, beautiful and warm, parasitic.
Adorable perspective shift on a vampire dystopia. Cute bedtime story for kids who like extra monsters in their fairy tales.
"Lullaby for Two Voices"
Being tough enough to make the harder, but right, decision. Maternal power. Fraternal love. A pretty little piece that felt like it should be told over a campfire as part of a series on the "not the Devil" who pulled Sarah from the wreckage and contracted with her.
Modern day addendum to Dante. Loved it.
"Watch the Coin"
With the exception of Neverwhere, I liked this better than all of Gaiman's prose. I might be biased; Netflix recently informed me that I like heist movies best of all genres. So a heist with some Fae? Hells to the yes.
I can envision reading this to my nieces and nephew. Made me nostalgic for Robert Louis Stevenson. I also liked the meta admonishment about naming a thing; it made me smirk since for several pages prior I was pleading with the author not to name The Boy. Taoist, Fae, Island of Blue Dolphins.Read more ›
Michael's voice has such power, perfect for the thinking-person's horror. Cold Season flavors his voice into a story about a town suffering under a strange epidemic caused by the narrator's hypochondriac, witch mother. If she can cause people to be sick by speaking, how can her son stop the sickness before it spreads beyond their city? Terrific imagination and how it requires your attention to detail to figure out the mystery, all while being a breeze to read as you have to find out what happens next.
One Last Sunset
Same powerful voice, totally new story. It's hard to tell if this is my favorite or if Cold Season is. Thankfully, this story was turned into Michael's first novel, Still Life, which is also very highly recommended.
One Last Sunset is a different kind of vampire story, both because Michael's voice is so unique, but also because of the vampire and the subject, how she can become one and how the real focus is on the sorrow of losing her best friend.
At $0.99 for this anthology, buying it for these two stories alone is a superb deal.

This was a collection of pretty good stories but I didnt like most of the endings. He needed to fatten the endings a bit. Too much
